Nobody is speaking about integrating OpenJDK or OpenJFX into the AOO
source, or integrating the AOO source into OJFX.

AFAIK the license of the runtime and the license of the VM are
different things. You can write a GPL app that runs on top of a Apache
licensed VM, an Apache licensed app that runs on top of a GPL licensed
VM, and a propietary app that runs on top of a GPL or non-GPL VM.

Thus, IMHO, JavaFX can be used to create all kinds of apps, regardless
of license. I have seen JFX apps with BSD license, and JFX apps with
GPL license.

Kind regards,
