It seems this is related to the xmlns:fx="http://javafx.com/fxml/1" parameter that is set, that makes to not work properly, if you then add "xmlns:fx="http://javafx.com/fxml" this error occurs, if you on the other hand remove the "/1" from the xmlns:fx..." line it seems to work...
This exception likely a result of trying to redefine namespace xmlns:fx, e.g. xmlns:fx="http://javafx.com/fxml/1" xmlns:fx="http://javafx.com/javafx".
I copied that into my FXMLDocument.fxml and quickly received an Exception.
For the workaround, you should delete one of the xmlns:fx declarations - but bear in mind that each time you save the file in Scene Builder, it will update the namespaces as follows (using Scene Builder 1.1 GA, which correctly injects):
See also bug 236509 and included JavaFX RT and Scene Builder JIRAs.
will be fixed soon for dev/8.0
Actually a separate defect, even with improved namespace support. Note you cannot have two xmlns attributes, it's a XML level error.
Fixed in rev http://hg.netbeans.org/jet-main/rev/05316f8cbcef
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201310040001* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
