Most applications were using AWT/Swing at the time that JCEF was created. This is still the case for many applications, even with JavaFX approaching 12 years old.

Thanks for the fast answer.
So if that was the only reason, which I understand perfectly, would you be against a conversion to JavaFX?

Adding support for JavaFX is a possibility. It is already being discussed in https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/ ... e-for-jcef
