Here we go again, with another batch of JavaFX 2.0 related links of the week. I hope you enjoy them 🙂
- Richard Bair was recently interviewed by InfoQ regarding JavaFX 2.0.
- Geertjan Wielenga blogged about the potential usefulness of the JavaFX WebView component. This is a part of JavaFX 2.0 – a fully fledged web browser component that can be embedded in your JavaFX applications. Also, because JavaFX 2.0 supports being embedded inside Swing applications, you can also use the WebView in Swing.
- Tom Eugelink has ported the MiGLayout layout manager to JavaFX 2.0 EA. For people who love building user interfaces with MiGLayout, it looks like your prayers have been answered. Interestingly, there is very little code to this layout, considering the powerful layout functionality it exposes.
- Aljoscha Rittner has created a screen capture tool written in JavaFX 2.0 with only 200 lines of code and a very quick startup time. Once the dependency on the AWT Robot class is removed, it is likely that this will become even quicker.
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to blog about their thoughts, experiences, and progress with JavaFX 2.0. I love reading it and love sharing it with the community – keep up the great work!
