A heap of interesting links this week, so I’m going to skip the introduction and get right into it. Enjoy!
- Osvaldo Pinali Doederlein has done another JavaFX 2.0 benchmark using the commonly favoured bubblemark animation test. As always, his findings are in-depth and well worth reading.
- Daniel Zwolenski (aka Zonski) has put up an early access release of his JFX Flow project. You can find the blog post announcing it here, the project site here, and the Google project here.
- Mark Stephens put up a teaser about a project he is working on to enable rendering PDF files inside JavaFX using the JavaFX scenegraph.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has put up some simple util methods to convert to and from BufferedImage in JavaFX. Just a word of warning: this uses impl_* methods.
- Rob Mayhew has blogged about showing fading status messages in JavaFX 2.0.
- Carl Dea has announced a book he is releasing through Apress in December titled “JavaFX 2.0: Introduction By Example“.
- Enrique García has a sample application showing JavaFX integration with Phys2D.
- Speaking of physics, Bertrand Goetzmann has put up the Groovy source code for the Grezi physics demo (which uses JBox2D, another physics library). You can also watch a video of it.
- Gail Anderson has blogged about the importance of JavaFX properties.
- This week Johan Vos and I put out a slight revision to the DataFX project, pushing it up to 0.0.4. This release includes increased CSS styling support for table rows, as well as early OSGi deployment support.
That’s all folks. Keep up all the great work and I’ll be back in a weeks time to cover everything that happens this coming week!
