Post GTK replacement with other toolkit


Hi guys!

I'm starting to use docker, currently working on sandboxing JavaFX applications (Oracle Java 8). I have managed to run own gui JavaFX jar's and iceweasel (Firefox), xeye (X11 funny useless app). But there is one kind of problem. JavaFX requires GTK (2.18 at least), which has lots of dependencies, also about 750 MB to install (almost clean Debian). This makes difficult as build docker image every time as develop my project further.

So, is there any other widget toolkits that will allow ьу to run JavaFX apps?


P.S. Sorry for my english....

Thanks for links!
Yes, Swing is inbuilt. But JavaFX is a separate framework, like Django and Flask for Python (bad comparison ). Aaand it have its own dependencies...


Oor
Is there support for any toolkit? I just need one to GUI could be displayed...

Problem solved!

Installation of libswt-gtk-3* actually worked instead of installation the whole gtk stuff. It is like 100 times less to download, but still a lot. I'm going to find out exact names of packages to install. Thanks for the reply!
