Hey everyone – I’m back in the chair this week having just returned from Japan where I presented at JavaOne and then took a vacation. Thanks to Carl Dea for stepping in for me the last two weeks to keep the links flowing, and for also finding a bunch of links for this weeks post. I apologise if your link has been missed (please let me know), and I also apologise if I repeat a link that has already been posted. With that, let’s get into the links!
- Jasper Potts was interviewed by the Java Spotlight podcast whilst we were in Japan. He talks extensively about the recent developer preview release of Scene Builder.
- Adam Bien has blogged about building JavaFX 2 using Maven 3.
- Tom Schindl has two blog posts up regarding JavaFX and Eclipse xtend being a perfect match, and a sensationally perfect match
- Software4Java.com has got three interesting blog posts about creating custom CSS styling for Mac OS and iOS. This is very cool and I would love to see more people working together in a project to create ‘native’ looks for JavaFX.
- Jason Lee will show you how to get Java 7, NetBeans, and JavaFX 2 running on Mac OS X. Well written instructions to get you on your way.
- Carl Dea has posted part two of his JavaFX 2 game tutorial.
- Sai Dandem of e-Zest blogs about creating a custom calendar control and how to use JavaFX animations to transition regions. (It’s all about clipping). Another blog entry about creating a custom JavaFX TableColumn allowing you to adjust column widths using a percentage similar to a Html table tag element.
- Anton Epple has created an A Hello World example in JavaFX and JBox2D. He then has a follow-up blog entry that goes on to demonstrate a way to apply a custom renderer onto nodes called a NodeProvider interface. Another post talks about adding custom components to FXML using BuilderFactory. He then begins experimenting with adding extensibility to the FX Experience tools application, which he then updated in a separate post. Finally, he talks about using Scene Builder to create the desired node designs that he can then use in his pinball application.
- introjava posts a very nice example of how to create a ribbon component similar to Microsoft Office applications using JavaFX.
Catch you all next week!
