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.

Howdy folks to another week of links. It certainly seems like the number of links this week has picked up, which is great to see. Let’s get right into things.

  • Adam Bien had a very popular blog post about JavaFX 2.0, showing off how you build a very simple Hello World application using the early JavaFX 2.0 API. Also interesting is the considerable discussion that took place in the comments section.
  • Adam Bien continues posting about JavaFX 2.0, this time doing a quick post about how a TableView control can be created and populated. On my behalf, your feedback on this is very much appreciated (even though the API shown by Adam is a little out of date now).
  • Peter Pilgrim has recorded three screencasts as he plays with and explores the new JavaFX 2.0 SDK. Just note that what he is showing is pre-beta code samples using APIs that may change, and of course no best practices have been developed yet, so continue to explore with alternate approaches! 🙂
  • Stephen Chin was interviewed by OTN, where he discusses JavaOne, JavaFX, Visage and other topics.
  • Stephen Chin is currently in India on business, and he gave the ‘JavaFX 2.0 and Alternate Languages‘ talk he and I first gave at JavaOne. Each time he gives it it’s a little bit different though, so it pays to check it out if you’re interested.
  • The JavaFX 2.0 roadmap has been updated to reflect the current state of progress. In general it appears as if the JavaFX team are doing a great job, keeping up with the schedule (which has always been a very tight schedule!).

Catch you all in a weeks time!
