This is a follow-on article for building Java desktop applications using OpenJDK11 and OpenJFX 11. See
In this article, we are, like the previous articles, going to build the whole application using the command line.
The software tools we will use in this article are:
- OpenJDK 11
- OpenJFX 11
- OpenJFX 11 modules
- Wix Toolset 3.11
See the earlier article Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application for more information about these tools
What is different here is firstly the application is going to take advantage of the modular system introduced in Java 9. Secondly, we are going to build a Java Runtime Environment that includes the JavaFX modules our application requires. We will then package up the Java application with the JRE however, this will leave us with a JRE for any other Java applications providing the modules they need are included in the JRE.

Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application
With the advent of Java 9 and the introduction of 6 monthly release cycles, the Java Desktop landscape has changed considerably. If you find yourself looking to build Desktop applications using JavaFX and present them as self-contained applications, then take note.

What is the point of writing an application if no one is going to use it? We all want our applications out there in the hands of users.
So how can we achieve this if we are building JavaFX applications for the desktop? Continue reading “Showcasing a deployable JavaFX application”
This is the last in the series about writing applications which convert text to speech. We started off the journey by introducing the final product, a Speech Tester JavaFX application.
It is this application that we are going to design and build here.

In the last post we took a look at a small application to demonstrate making our program speak and the various voices and settings that can be used to alter the sound.
In this post, we are going to build a small proof of concept project to load the FreeTTS synthesiser and start to use it. Continue reading “JavaFX and adding basic speech”
Have you ever wondered how to make your application talk? Well, in this tutorial we take a look at a JavaFX application built to sample some voices. The application uses freely available tools such as FreeTTS and MBROLA to add speech into an application. Continue reading “JavaFX Text to Speech”
I was working on a project the other day and it had a requirement for speech. Based on some pre-agreed text, the application needed to play back the text to the user. Now, these days this sort of thing is common place. Alexa and Siri are well known services based on this sort of technology.
So, what if you want to convert text to speech how can you do this.

JavaFX provides a number of Alert dialog box templates to solve a range of requirements. Here we look at two of the options namely the information template and blank template. Continue reading “JavaFX Alert information box demo”
Quite often when building desktop applications there is a need to present information to the user. A popular means of doing this is through the use of a popup dialog box. JavaFX provides us with a few ways of doing this using the Alert dialog box. In this tutorial we take a look at the various types of alert from error to confirmation.
