B4J-Bridge v1.50
Running on Java 11+
External JavaFX not found. Searching for internal modules...
Waiting for connections (port=6790)...
My IP address is:
FTP Server started:
Start B4J-Bridge with -disableftp to disable.
JavaFX modules:
Starting program

It seems that it miss the JavaFX modules. I have download the latest version from b4j : https://www.b4x.com/b4j.html

I have tested with Openjdk 11 and Oracle Java 8 (I think that I must use Openjdk 11 but....) , but I have an error on the both. I'm probably doing something bad but I don't know where...

Can you help me please?

I have downloaded the three components to a folder and unpack the files.

Is there a specific path to place this 3 files?

Sorry but I need to move and place the file "b4j-bridge.jar" in the folder path "java/jdk-14.0.2.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/" or I need to write the command line "java/jdk-14.0.2.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java -jar b4j-bridge.jar" in the terminal of the Mac M1?
