JavaFX 2.0.3 System Requirements

Use the following information to ensure that your operating system, browser, and Java platform meet the requirements for running the JavaFX technology. Also included are the hardware requirements for accelerated rendering of graphics and the supported NetBeans IDE version.

Operating Systems and Browsers

See JavaFX Supported System Configurations for a list of operating systems and browsers that are compatible with JavaFX 2.0.3.

Java Platform

Oracle recommends you use JavaFX 2.0.3 with a minimum of Java SE 6 Update 31 or Java SE 7 Update 3 installed on your system.

Graphics Support

For JavaFX applications to take advantage of the new hardware acceleration pipeline provided by JavaFX, your system must feature one of a wide range of GPUs currently available in the market. Table 1 lists the graphics cards that have been tested with JavaFX. If your system does not support hardware acceleration, then JavaFX uses the Java2D software pipeline.
