Error Compiling JavaFX Application


Question

I'm new to java, I'm trying to build a JavaFX Application on eclipse using e(fx)clipse by following a tutorial and did exactly the same, the application is very simple, when I try to compile it I get bunch of errors which I don't even understand :

Accepted Answer

You have to set the location of the FXML file in your loader, be sure that you are providing the correct PATH to your FXML file.

PS: Netbeans is the best choice for a JavaFX beginner, start Here.
