December already?! I know I say it a lot, but time flies! Let’s get on with the links…
- Marco Jakob has posted all five parts of his JavaFX 2 tutorials online. You can find all five parts at these links: part 1 (Scene Builder), part 2 (model and TableView), part 3 (interacting with the user), part 4 (CSS styling – making use of JMetro) and part 5 (storing data as XML).
- Johan Vos has announced the release of DataFX 1.0. DataFX is a library for retrieving data from remote data sources and easily populating (and rendering) JavaFX UI controls.
- Sébastien Bordes has announced the release of JRebirth 0.7.1. JRebirth is a JavaFX 2 Application Framework.
- Eric Bruno has published part two of his ‘JavaFX file editor’article. In this entry, he talks about the JavaFX WebView component, the simple file editor itself, and keyboard processing.

- Thierry Wasyl has blogged about how to use the JavaFX TableView control.
- A new (and open source) library was announced this week for JavaFX data services called Granite Data Services. Check out their blog for a very comprehensive blog post on the functionality offered by this library, as well as their thoughts on input validation in JavaFX (I should note that this is on our radar but not something we’ve started to work on yet) and real-time messaging with JavaFX 2.
- René Jahn continues to explore embedded JavaFX. This week he has posts on NFC/RFID for Beagleboard xm with Java, and JavaFX TimeTracking with Beagleboard-xm.

Catch you in a weeks time!
Hello, I am kinda new to his JavaFX thing, just curious to ask (if it’s a bit offtopic – sorry) if NetBeans is the most used IDE when developing JavaFX stuff? at the moment sitting with e(fx)clipse, not sure what pros would I have with NetBeans?
I tend to use IntelliJ, Jasper uses NetBeans, and several other guys here use Eclipse (I’m not sure if Jonathan is using Eclipse although he prefers it). The E(fx)clipse support is terrific. But really I think it comes down to which IDE you prefer to code in.
Well I didin’t managed to make proper Jar files that are runnable within both OSX and Windows with Intellij, so I switched hmm, kinda curious if Scenic View is JavaFX App, how they managed to make it use OSX Native Menu bar hmm
Regarding Scenic View using the OSX native menu bar, there is a property on the JavaFX MenuBar class to specify that, if possible, the menubar should be rendered using the system menubar, rather than the JavaFX in-window one. This is what I use in Scenic View to make the application look more integrated with the operating system.
As Richard mentioned, it comes down to your preferred IDE. For a very long time I preferred Eclipse, but right now I use NetBeans. I hope that sometime soon I can switch back to Eclipse (but I’ve been saying that for years) 🙂
Thanks for answers. Kinda find it hard to Google something about JavaFX most of the time, but still it got be curious enough to end up here asking for and starting some of my college project with it for learning purposes. Still can’t believe how I could have missed that option for using system menu bar ;D stupid of me
A good place to ask questions (and to help others) is the JavaFX forum here: https://forums.oracle.com/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=1385&start=0
Yes, thanks, was thinking of this one yesterday, registration process asking too much confidential data got me annoyed, but I assume I have no other choice as to reg in
all the time i used to read smaller articles or reviews that
also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this post which I am reading here.
