FX Experience Has Gone Read-Only

I've been maintaining FX Experience for a really long time now, and I love hearing from people who enjoy my weekly links roundup. One thing I've noticed recently is that maintaining two sites (FX Experience and JonathanGiles.net) takes more time than ideal, and splits the audience up. Therefore, FX Experience will become read-only for new blog posts, but weekly posts will continue to be published on JonathanGiles.net. If you follow @FXExperience on Twitter, I suggest you also follow @JonathanGiles. This is not the end - just a consolidation of my online presence to make my life a little easier!

tl;dr: Follow me on Twitter and check for the latest news on JonathanGiles.net.

Welcome to another weeks JavaFX links. This week I have broken out the Visage links to a separate section. I hope you all find something useful in this weeks post.



  • Jim Weaver has blogged about how the first compiler preview release of project visage. As a reminder, Visage is a fork of the JavaFX Script compiler (which has always been open source), with an aim to allow for the JavaFX Script DSL to live on and support JavaFX 2.0 APIs, as well as alternative UI toolkits.
  • William Antonio has done a post to show off the first new feature of Visage – the ‘default’ keyword that has been introduced.

That’s it for another week. Catch you all in the weeks time! 🙂
