Testing JavaFX applications with QF-Test has been supported since the launch of JavaFX.
QF-Test can directly address and validate sub-items of complex components, such as addressing a table cell via its row and column information. These steps can be conveniently recorded and modularized, allowing easy reuse and leading to low-maintenance tests.
With QF-Test you can test JavaFX apps cross-platform on:
JavaFX is often combined with other Java GUI technologies, e.g. Swing or SWT and of course web. Thus it is particularly important that QF‑Test is ready for use when migrating from Swing or SWT to JavaFX. This allows automated Java Swing or SWT tests created with QF‑Test to be reused for JavaFX with little effort, even combined for embedded components. If parts of the JavaFX application are implemented in an embedded browser like WebView or JxBrowser, QF-Test fully supports that as well.
The following scripting languages offer full access to the JavaFX application under test:
"Janitza has been using QF-Test extensively over many years to live up to the constant growth and guarantee a high bar of quality at the same time.
Starting with a Swing application, the technology switches to JavaFX, JxBrowser and web applications were also covered effectively with QF-Test."

"Personally, I want to stress again the good customer service. Just a few days ago we had technical problems with our nightly-build relating to JavaFx. Within a very short time QFS service reacted, analysed our problem and sent us a patch. Top - Keep it up!"

Oracle announced at the JavaFX Adopters Meeting 2020 to extend support for their proprietary JavaFX 8 until 2025. Builds of the open-source variant OpenJFX and longstanding support contracts for that are offered by Gluon.
