Deploying javafx hsqldb project with maven

2020-05-26 java maven javafx deployment hsqldb

I did a lot of research and still couldnt manage to deploy it, to a single .jar file I mean. Is it easy to do with maven? I don't know how to add hsqldb to maven and how to get jar from maven (I could only set jfx:run as goal) my maven POM for now is:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

                </configuration>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>
</project>

I would appreciate any help and advise. Thank you already.

I've never worked with Maven, but to add the HSQLDB to it, do the following:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.hsqldb</groupId>
    <artifactId>hsqldb</artifactId>
    <version>2.5.0</version>
</dependency>

Got this from here.

As for deploying it as a .jar, you need to "execute jfx:jar goal", which I saw being mentioned here.
