2012 is rapidly running out, but fortunately the number of links (and the quality) continues to rise. 2013 looks like it might be a very good year for desktop Java at this rate! Keep up the great work folks:-)
- As mentioned last week, there is a survey up on FX Experience about JavaFX on embedded, mobile and tablet devices. If you are reading this, regardless of whether you are a JavaFX developer or interested in targeting these kinds of devices, please (please please!) give us 5 minutes to record your thoughts in the survey – it is much appreciated.
- Java 7u10 was released this week, which includes JavaFX 2.2.4. As per usual, along with the release comes a new release of JavaFX documentation.
- To aid people working on the FX Game project (which is currently focused on building a Tower Defense game), Daniel Zwolenski has started up a Google group mailing list. If you’re interested in taking part, head over there, sign up and introduce yourself!
- Danno Ferrin is working on an interesting application that renders text formatted with the plain text MarkdDown syntax using the TextFlow feature of JavaFX.
- Tom Schindl continues to be very busy on his e(fx)clipse project, with three posts written in the past week. Firstly he talks about ‘Automated Eclipse Project creation and deployment (for JavaFX)‘, secondly he posts about his recommended project structure for (JavaFX) e4 projects, and finally he has a post about how EMF-Edit-Support is coming to JavaFX via e(fx)clipse.

- Filipe Portes has posted to GitHub code for a new project of his called ModuleFX, which “embeds the JavaFX Runtime inside an OSGI bundle, allowing you to create modular JavaFX apps with all the power of OSGI framework, getting the best of Java Rich Client and Modularization worlds together.”
The Hatena Diaryaoe-tk has a post about developing multi-touch application in JavaFX.
That’s us for another week – catch you all next on Christmas Eve (hopefully, assuming we don’t all get wiped out on December 21st 😉 )
