A huge number of very interesting posts this week, so lets just get straight into it!
- Tom Schindl has been extraordinarily busy, working on a very interesting code editor project called Compensator.
- The F(x)yz project has released a sampler application that demonstrates all their 3D goodness.
- Jens Deters has announced FontAwesomeFX 8.1.
- Dirk Lemmerman has a post on JavaFX path clipping.
- Johan Vos has published an article on cloud based monitoring of IoT devices (using JavaFX).
- Chris Joakim has posted a new project on GitHub called fxml2j that sounds pretty neat. Quoting the website: “The ‘fxml2j’ library will BOTH generate an implementation of the Java Controller class, as well as show you ongoing “diffs” between your FXML and Controller class as each of these two code artifacts evolves. The library will discover the fx:id elements, and #-prefixed action methods, and generate the appropriate @FXML annotated Java code.”
- Dirk Fauth has published ‘SWT to JavaFX migration‘.
- Timothy Baldridge has posted a project to GitHub called fn(fx). From the website: “This library provides a functional, declarative wrapper around JavaFX. The goals are to provide a “Virtual DOM” like interface over the OOP mutability JavaFX embraces.”
- René Jahn has posted about the JVx framework and how it is utilising JavaFX.
- J.Zimmermann has created a JavaFX-based VNC client.
- Lukas Eder has posted about how to ‘transform your SQL data into charts using jOOQ and JavaFX‘.
I think you’ll agree that this is a great batch of links. Keep up the great work folks – it’s great to see!
Who would’ve thought it – more links! Enjoy
That’s all for this week – catch you again next week.
Some really cool links this week. Enjoy!
That’s all for this week. Catch you all next week!
Another week, another round of links. Enjoy.
- Tom Schindl has announced that e(fx)clipse 1.2.0 has been released. Another feature of this release is that it includes a helper API to call methods that throw exceptions.
- Hendrik Ebbers has been busy, blogging five separate posts this past week. They were titled ‘Concurrency in UI Toolkits (Part 1)‘, ‘Concurrency in UI Toolkits (Part 2)‘, ‘An introduction to Open Dolphin‘, ‘How to set up a DataFX application‘, and ‘DataFX Tutorial 6‘.
- It’s great to see people making use of JavaFX to create Android applications using the JavaFX Ports project by Johan Vos. This week I saw a few mentions on twitter, including William Antônio porting his stacker game, Darryl Ruggles getting PekkersLogicSimulator running, and José Pereda getting 15FX running on Android.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has posted about some of the new features coming up in JavaFX 8u40. This is quite a nice release!

See you next week.
Another week of links is upon us. Enjoy!
That’s that for another week – catch you in a weeks time!
Here we go again with another round of links. Enjoy!
Until next week – keep up the great work folks!
Hi all, it’s been a long time since my last post – I was on vacation, and upon returning from vacation was buried under too much work to get around to the links posts. Now that things have settled down, let’s get back into the weekly links roundups for another year. I should note that given my vacationing, I may have missed your links. If this is the case, please email me and I’ll be sure to include them next week. Enjoy!
- Jens Deters has been very busy since my last post. Here are the things he has blogged about: the release of MQTT.fx 0.0.12, the release of ShichimiFX 1.0.3 and ShichimiFX 1.0.4.
- Hendrik Ebbers has blogged about the Desktop and Embedded Application JSR that has just been officially kicked off. In a separate post he expands on this by talking about UI toolkit independence. Finally, he has also blogged about the recordings of his JavaOne talks being available.
- Tom Schindl has blogged about displaying and editing large (styled) texts in JavaFX.
- José Pereda has a very interesting post on creating and texturing JavaFX 3D shapes.
- Gerrit Grunwald has an interesting post on running JavaFX on an e-ink display.
- Arnaud Nouard has two posts to cover. Firstly, he has continued to develop his Undecorator library to remove the operating system ‘chrome’ and replace it with something cross-platform and visually pleasing. Secondly, he has created a simply magnifier application called Magnifix.
- Johan Vos has posted another JavaFX on Android video.
- Bertrand Goetzmann has posted a screencast that demonstrates how to create a new JavaFX afterburner.gfx project using the Lazybones Project Creation Tool.

- Florian Brunner has blogged about using ControlsFX in a Drombler FX application.
- John Martens has created javafxtutorials.com to contain, well, JavaFX tutorials. Already he has a few posts up, with titles such as ‘what is JavaFX?‘, ‘The 2 Ways to Write JavaFX Programs‘, and ‘Hello Math – A Tale of 2 Programs‘.
- The IDR Solutions blog has two posts. The first one is titled ‘5 reasons why JavaFX is better than Swing for developing a Java PDF viewer‘. The second one is titled ‘The use of NetBeans Dialog API for the NetBeans JavaFX PDF Viewer Plugin‘.
- Niels Würzbach has posted about research into the use of JavaFX for in-car infotainment.
- Sebastian Stenzel has started a project called ‘FXThreads‘ to make switching between main and background threads in JavaFX easier.
- The tesis-dynaware github repo has recently published a library for creating and editing graph-like diagrams in JavaFX.

That’s all folks. Catch you all next week!
10 days until Christmas – that’s crazy – where has the time gone?! Seriously! I don’t even know if I’ll get the Christmas tree up in time this year!
Catch you all next week!
A quiet week this week, but a few good links nonetheless. Enjoy
That’s that for another week. Catch you all in a weeks time!
