FX Experience Has Gone Read-Only

I've been maintaining FX Experience for a really long time now, and I love hearing from people who enjoy my weekly links roundup. One thing I've noticed recently is that maintaining two sites (FX Experience and JonathanGiles.net) takes more time than ideal, and splits the audience up. Therefore, FX Experience will become read-only for new blog posts, but weekly posts will continue to be published on JonathanGiles.net. If you follow @FXExperience on Twitter, I suggest you also follow @JonathanGiles. This is not the end - just a consolidation of my online presence to make my life a little easier!

tl;dr: Follow me on Twitter and check for the latest news on JonathanGiles.net.

Another week has rolled by, and so have another batch of links. This week is a little quiet, owing mainly to the pre-JavaOne quiet period that seems to happen every year (I’ve been writing this blog for so long patterns do eventually emerge) πŸ™‚ Anywho, enjoy! πŸ™‚

  • John Malc has published part three of his ‘Developing a Complex Bank Application in JavaFX‘ series of posts, this time focusing on the ControlsFX project. I’m pleased to read that he is happy with all the effort the ControlsFX developers (including myself)Β  have put into the javadocs – we really busted our gut to get a top-notch example of how javadoc should be written (although I should note that the current documentation online is for our 8.0.2 developer preview 1 release, so it is a little lower quality than we would normally have in a final release).
  • Chris Newland has posted about his Raspberry Pi TFT hack and video glasses, which run JavaFX.
  • The tomoTaka blog has an article about writing a WebSocket echo client using JavaFX.
  • Modellus 0.4 was recently released. Modellus is a freely available software package that enables students and teachers to use mathematics to create or explore models interactively.

That’s all this week. I’ll catch you all in a weeks time! πŸ™‚
