Hi all,

I am using JFxPanel to embed JavaFx into Swing. I occasionally get a NullPointerException with the following stack trace:

Java FX Code:
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException
	at javafx.embed.swing.JFXPanel$HostContainer$1.run(JFXPanel.java:741)

	at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(EventDispatchThread.java:91)
I create my swing components on the EDT and my JavaFx components on the JavaFx app thread like this:

Java FX Code:
SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable {
    JFXPanel panel = new Panel();

    Platform.runLater(new Runnable {
        @Override public void run(): Unit = {
            Scene scene = new Scene(parent);
From searching around, it appears that 'scenePeer ' is sometimes null in the panel. It also sounds like this is fixed in JavaFx 8, but this is not an option for me.
I also tried implementing an 'invokeAndWait' using runLater and a countdown latch to make sure the scene was created before continuing on the EDT. This did not help.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Thanks in advance.
