Today I decided to post regularly interesting JavaFX links of the past week. Thanks to Jonathan Giles for his great posts on “Java Desktop Links of the Week”. The JavaFX links are just taken from Jonathan’s posts in order to build a little JavaFX news archieve on my own blog and to inform my subscribers on interesting JavaFX news.
Here are the JavaFX Links of the Week 1, February 2010:
- Jim Weaver sums up the Oracle news this week nice and succinctly: ‘We will invest heavily in JavaFX‘.
- The JavaFX tutorial has been updated to include a gentler introduction to data binding and triggers, with a new chapter devoted exclusively to “the basics”. Also, apparently there are plans to include a more advanced article discussing this topic also.
- Want tabs in your JavaFX application? Well, today’s your lucky day as toumaille has posted exactly this. His tabbed pane control appears to be well thought out, and may be of use to people out there, certainly until there is an official tab control in JavaFX.
- Drew, carrying on his investigation into JavaFX and physics, has put up a JavaFX applet of a very, very simple platform game using real physics.
- Exadel released a new version of their JavaFX Plug-In for Eclipse, taking it up to version 1.2.1.
- Jim Weaver introduces an interesting visualisation developed in JavaFX by Nik Silver. You can go directly to the visualisation if you are interested in playing with it.
- Simon Morris has put up a page that contains all of the demos he wrote whilst writing his book ‘JavaFX in Action’.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has written about how he has embedded a JavaFX scene into a Swing application.
- Krishna Kishore has created a JavaFX application that grows/animates flowers onto the screen. It’s a rather nice effect, and shows the power of the language given Krishna admits creating this program just to learn the language.
