Java FX Script on mobile is not quite where you need it yet. Currently, FX Script is executed by an FX Script interpreter which requires Java SE 1.6 and Java 2D as a platform (see This is too big a stack for most mobile platforms to handle. What is needed for mobile devices is an efficient FX Script compiler with more moderate platform requirements such as only requiring Java 1.4 or 1.5 and a streamlined 2D graphics engine. Sun is working on this but there is nothing yet available for public consumption yet.

In the meantime you might want to look at creating your application or GUI with SGV and JSR 226 which is much more widely available.
