java – JavaFX Maven jfx:jar error: Could not find artifact javafx-packager-Exceptionshub

Questions:

I am trying to build an executable file using JavaFX and Maven.

‘clean javafx:run’ is working fine but when I run ‘mvn clean jfx:jar’ (in eclipse or cmd) I get this error:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal com.zenjava:javafx-maven-plugin:8.8.3:jar (default-cli) on project inkoop: Execution default-cli of goal com.zenjava:javafx-maven-plugin:8.8.3:jar failed: Plugin com.zenjava:javafx-maven-plugin:8.8.3 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: Could not find artifact javafx-packager:javafx-packager:jar:1.8.0_20 at specified path C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-13.0.2/../lib/ant-javafx.jar -> [Help 1]

My path has both %JAVA_HOME%\bin and C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.6.3\bin (%JAVA_HOME is set to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-13.0.2)

Is there any way I can build my application?
Do I need both javax-maven-plugin‘s?
Thanks for helping!

How to&Answers:

AFAIK, the com.zenjava:javafx-maven-plugin does not work with Java 11+ / JavaFX 11+.

Just use the org.openjfx:javafx-maven-plugin with Java 11+ / JavaFX 11+.
