Subject Re: how do I stop JavaFX bundles?
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2017 09:48:55 GMT
Calling getBundle(0).stop() does not just shut down an OSGi bundle, it shuts down the entire
OSGi framework. It’s not clear to me whether that’s what you should be doing.

As for shutting down JavaFX, you have found “Platform.exit()” but you are looking for
a better way? Maybe this question should be asked on a JavaFX forum.
