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.

We did a complete rewrite of charts in JavaFX 2.0 to add cool features like:

  • Dynamic Data Support
  • Animation
  • Auto Ranging
  • CSS Styling

There is a sample application called “Chart Sampler” that ships with JavaFX 2.0 Beta that shows some of what can be done with the new charts. Here are a few screen shots to tempt you to go and check it out 🙂
