I'd like to create a custom loading screen for a JavaFX application. Don't want the user to see the Java coffee cup icon, I want to put my own graphic there!
I've found out how to provide a static image, or even an animated GIF, but I'm more interested in a Flash-like screen where I can specify what the state of the image looks like at certain percentages.
For JavaFX2, you can set a custom preloader. You have complete control over then scene. I haven't used them personally, but this might be what you want. http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/deployment/preloaders.htm
