I have also run into some problems trying to get my JavaFX program to run. Like some of the others, I keep getting an error of java.lang.NullPointerException: Location is required. The fxml file is in the Application package. I've tried all the remedies I've found in here, but maybe I'm missing something? Here is my code

package application;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.fxml.FXMLLoader;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
import javafx.scene.Parent;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.layout.BorderPane;

public class Main extends Application {
    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        try {
            Parent root = FXMLLoader.load(getClass().getResource("application/Main.fxml"));
            Scene scene = new Scene(root, 400, 400);
        } catch (Exception e) {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

And here is the Error

java.lang.NullPointerException: Location is required.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Solved the problem by dragging and dropping Main.fxml in src folder. If this solution is found elsewhere please delete this post.

I lost an entire day battling with this issue in Netbeans. This is how I solved it : Firstly, I put the fxml file in the same package with main (though it can work even in separate packages). Secondly, I used getClassLoader() specifying the path of the file. Here's the code :` public class Main {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("Test  = "+Main.class.getClassLoader().getResource("FXMLDocument.fxml"));`

After Running the project, here's the output : ....NetBeansProjects/JavaFXApplicationTest/dist/JavaFXApplicationTest.jar!/FXMLDocument.fxml Note that Running the file alone was generating an error before.
