The preferred mechanism for this kind of functionality is to use a application preloader. The "Best Practices" documentation at http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/best_practices/jfxpub-best_practices.htm has an example of this.
Also more information here: http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/deployment/preloaders.htm

Here is a splashscreen version I created a while back https://gist.github.com/1588531 . . . it doesn't follow the best practices of using a Preloader because I'm lazy . . . but still may perhaps be useful to you.
Also click the download link off of the JavaFX samples showcase, download the sample source and open up the DataApp client application - it has a really nice Preloader screen of a car whizzing around a racetrack. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javafx/samples/index.html
