Needs advice

Hi experts, I need to write a GUI app that would configure a .json file. I am considering it to be cross-platform with as much as less dependency as possible i.e. once build/compiled, it should be running on the maximum number of OS platforms without re-building or re-compiling. So up till now, I've shortlisted 3 selected frameworks. The Swingvy was to be Java Swing but was not in the list. And after reading some stuff, I think that Java Swing or JavaFX should do the job. But I need suggestions/opinions from you experts, which would be a great help in order to achieve a precise decision. Any help/suggestion would be really appreciated. Thanks a bunch
