public class Main extends Application {

public void start(Stage primaryStage) throws Exception{
    //Parent root = FXMLLoader.load(getClass().getResource("sample.fxml"));
    Group root = new Group();
    Text txt = new Text("SUP?");
    primaryStage.setScene(new Scene(root, 300, 275));

public static void main(String[] args) {


// And then the error:
