Sorry folks for things being so quiet around here recently. Behind the scenes the JavaFX team has been super, super busy cranking out JavaFX 2.0, and well, that takes a lot of time to ensure the quality and functionality is top notch. I hope to get this blog back to life over the coming months as more and more JavaFX 2.0 news begins to surface. We’ve definitely got a lot to talk about….but not quite yet
So, let’s get into the links!
- Richard Bair, Java Client Architect and blogger on this blog, was interviewed by Java Spotlight. He provides a lot of insight into JavaFX 2.0, both where it is now and where we are taking it in the coming months before the final release.
- Dean Iverson has blogged about using the JavaFX 2.0 early access release with Groovy/Griffon. He has even uploaded a YouTube video showing a brief glimpse of what he created. It isn’t much, but it’s exciting to hear of people using JavaFX productively in various JVM-based languages.
- Adam Bien blogged about JavaFX 2.0, in particular a smoke test around the installation, docs and launch experience. His thoughts are all very positive, which is great considering the early stage that JavaFX 2.0 is in.
- Finally, Eric Bruno has also announced that he has JavaFX 2.0 EA, and is very impressed by it. There isn’t much more content to this post, but he promises to continue blogging about his thoughts and findings as the weeks go on.
- Kyle Thayer let me know about IFCSoft. It is a data visualization program that uses Self-Organizing Maps to view multi-dimensional data. You can run the program at http://www.ifcsoft.org and get the code at https://code.google.com/p/ifcsoft/.
- Andre Hogenkamp has blogged about creating a JavaFX zoomable linechart.
That’s us for another week – and once again apologies since the last post – I’ll try not to do that again any time soon! Keep up all the hard work folks, and I’ll catch you all soon.
