Here we go again, with this weeks batch of links. Thanks to the people contacting me with links and praise – it’s all much appreciated Anyway, let’s get into things…
- There is an Oracle webcast coming up on the 30th of June that is titled ‘The Code of Enterprise Success Begins with JavaFX 2.0‘. It features Jai Suri and Jasper Potts talking about JavaFX 2.0, and might include some interesting news and demonstrations.
- Tom Schindl has announced e(fx)clipse. The 0.0.1 release is minimal but no doubt useful for JavaFX 2.0 developers choosing to use Eclipse: it introduces a CSS editor that supports the JavaFX -fx extensions.
- Jim Connor has blogged about translating a JavaFX Script application to JavaFX 2.0.
- Stephen Chin continues to present the ‘JavaFX 2.0 With Alternative Languages‘ talk at conferences. He has just posted the slides for his talk at Jazoon, where he covers using JavaFX 2.0 with Groovy, Clojure, Scala, Fantom and Visage.
- Speaking of alternate languages, probably the one leading the pack is the GroovyFX project, which obviously provides improved Groovy support. They’ve just put up a heap of documentation that demonstrates how to use the JavaFX APIs using GroovyFX – be sure to check it out!
- Artem Ananiev has covered how to size your windows in JavaFX 2.0 easily.
- Seyhan Basmacı has blogged about building a JavaFX 2.0 sample application, which features a login form as well as a TableView, communicating with a remote server.
- jojorabbit4 has blogged about creating a custom JavaFX 2.0 ComboBox control. For what it’s worth, I spent a few hours this past weekend creating one as well, which may turn up somewhere sometime soon. I even posted an image or two to tease its current state (which is: unfinished, but much better than nothing).
- Laurent Nicolas has blogged about creating a simple JavaFX 2.0 slide presenter.
- Narayan has written about masking in JavaFX 2.0.
That’s all for this weeks folks. Keep up the blogging and exploring of the Java desktop APIs. Catch you in a weeks time!
