Wow! A great week of links this week, with a number of interesting reads, some interesting code, and another upcoming JavaFX talk coming up real soon now. Here’s the links of the past week:
- Richard Bair posted a very simple SplitView ‘control’ for JavaFX that you can easily reuse in your JavaFX applications. It’s not fully-fledged like it would be once it’s developed properly by Sun (so it isn’t skinable, etc), but it can be easily modified to meet your specific needs in the short term.
- JavaFX.com has let me know that they’ve put up a number of new and updated how-to’s. This is a great resource for people new to JavaFX.
- With the second Silicon Valley JavaFX presentation by Amy Fowler now behind us, we have the third one coming up in only a few weeks: it’s Hinkmond Wong who will be giving detailed talk on the state of the art in the mobile landscape. If you are interested in mobile development, this event will give you the answers.
- Simon Morris has updated his JavaFX Wipe Library, which is a collection of transition effects (think Powerpoint slide changing effects – fades, slides, reveals, flip, etc, etc).
- Drew has posted a tutorial on how he created a ‘photo drop‘ application in JavaFX which makes use of Phys2D. It’s not the first time I’ve seen Phys2D used in JavaFX, with Richard Bair and Jasper Potts having used it in their Devoxx game, and Simon Morris using it for some demos as well.
- Eric Warriner has created a mashup using the National Public Radio and Google Maps APIs (and 125 lines of JavaFX code) to translate a given zip code to show all available NPR stations.
- Mitchell Pronschinske has a short interview with Lukas Hasik regarding the Netbeans Composer plugin for designing JavaFX user interfaces visually.
- Max Katz, on the Exadel blog, has announced that version 1.2 of the Exadel JavaFX plugin for Eclipse has been released.
- Tom Eugelink has posted a comprehensive post discussing developing JavaFX code using Eclipse.
- Rakesh Menon has posted about printing in JavaFX (through using what is available in AWT).
- Alexandr Scherbatiy has posted some code he wrote in JavaFX that generates fractals.
I hope that there were some useful links in there for you. Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have anything you want to have linked to in a future posting. Until next week – have a great week ahead, and keep up the great work 🙂
