This weeks post is a day early, as I’ll be traveling to the US this afternoon for meetings and such. Due to this, the number of links this week is a little lower than usual. I imagine next weeks post will be far bigger. Nonetheless, there is still plenty of reading and learning for you from the links this week. Enjoy 🙂
- Hendrik Ebbers has two posts this week. Firstly, he talks about the ‘aquatecture‘ of the AquaFX project (which is a project to create a Mac OS X look for JavaFX). Secondly, he has the first post in a series about designing JavaFX business applications. This post focuses on the JavaFX middleware layer, and in particular he calls out DataFX, RedFX and OpenDolphin. Future posts will cover the client side and other areas.
- Angela Caicedo, a Java evangelist at Oracle, was interviewed at Devoxx UK about her work on user interface development using Raspberry PI and JavaFX.
- I announced the availability of a new project called ControlsFX, which not surprisingly is a collection of JavaFX UI controls (dialogs, button bars, grid views, etc) designed for JavaFX 8.0 and above.
- Gerrit Grunwald has announced a JavaFX BBQ at his place in June. If you’re in the area, he’s got all the details on his blog.
- Sri kalyan posted a blog post on his FXTalk project, which is a JavaFX-based gtalk / Jabber client.
- Carl Dea has posted the code for his WebcamFX project to GitHub.
That’s all folks! Catch you again next week after I return from the US.
