Run a flash file(.swf) in javafx

Hello I'm new to this forum and also new to JavaFX.
In my project, I need to run a .swf file embedded in a JavaFX stage. I also need to update database after running the flash file. So a standalone flash player is not an option.
Any solution?

Use Java 8 with a SwingNode and the DJ project.
I've never tried this combination, it may or may not work.

The JavaFX API itself does not directly support embedded Flash (hence the round-about JavaFX/Swing/embedded flash player recommendation).

I'd say, in general, mixing Flash and JavaFX is one of those not really recommended things, so try it only if you must.

Yes I'd looked at these alternatives but jdk 8 stable release is not available yet.
Also the target platform will need to be upgraded to jdk 8 which is not preferable.
So thanks but let me know if there are other alternatives.

Maybe try converting your SWF to HTML5 using something like this and show it in WebView?
Just an alternative approach - I've not tried it out.

Converting to HTML5 is good idea but the tool you mentioned does not support ActionScript I think
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
