I need to develop controls for javafx8. I prefer Netbeans, but in NetBeans 7.3 I can not set jdk8 as javafx runtime.
When using the nightly builds of netbeans I have got 2 problems:
- nashorn keeps on throwing java.lang.NoSuchMethodError exceptions (although I don't use nashorn)
- gradle plugin has some internal errors
My question is: which IDE are you using for javafx8?
E.g. in his ControlsFX Project (https://bitbucket.org/JonathanGiles/controlsfx) Jonathan Giles is working with javafx8
and uses gradle. So I guess that there must be already a working IDE for javafx8.
Developing an application that uses JavaFX 8 in Eclipse is as simple as installing e(fx)clipse.
Tom Schindl also did some work to allow you to use eclipse to make use of new Java 8 language features such as lambdas:

Clarified answer based on Tom's advice.
I think you are mixing things! You can happily use the all in one downloads if you are only developing JavaFX applications. The preview build is only needed if you want:
a) make fixes to OpenJFX sources
b) use Java8 syntax yourself
If I read the request appropiately he only wants to use JavaFX8 (=programm against the JavaFX API) and for that he can use our all-in-one downloads as outlined at http://www.efxclipse.org/install.html#for-the-lazy
