I'm working on a JavaFX application, and trying to make it as user-friendly as possible. I created a preloader with progress bar, but it still takes some time from the moment application is started till the moment preloader appears. This is probably regular JVM startup time.
So, my idea was to show splash screen image while JVM is starting using '"-splash" command line switch. This image would be displayed until preloader activates. Unfortuantely, this does not work on OS X. When I run app from command line with this switch, splash image appears, but application never starts.
On Linux, however, this works. Does anybody have any idea why it does not work on Mac?
