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.

A lot of links this week, enjoy! 🙂
- Adam Bien has an article on ‘Structuring Complex JavaFX 8 Applications for Productivity‘.
- José Pereda has written an article for this months Java Magazine called ‘Building castles in the sky‘, which is all about JavaFX and its 3D capabilities.
- Speaking of José, he has also posted a YouTube video of a JavaFX-based “icosphere, a 3D custom mesh of an sphere created with a triangle mesh (40k points, 80k faces, 65k colors). A variable density function is mapped to the texture to achieve this moving effect, without using images.”
- David Gilbert has also published an article in Java Magazine, titled “A Bridge from Java 2D to JavaFX”. This article describes the FXGraphics2D project that allows Java 2D code to target the JavaFX Canvas node.
- Matthieu Brouillard has announced that he is working to integrate his CSSFX project into Scenic View.
- Jens Deters has announced the release of ShichimiFX 1.0.1, which includes a few new nice features.
- Andres Almiray has been interviewed as a ‘former Swing-aholic’, talking about his thoughts on JavaFX. Note that when he mentions accessibility support coming up in a future release, that is the 8u40 release.
- Dirk Lemmermann posted two videos this week. Firstly, of his work on an animated menu (which looks pretty neat), and secondly on a JavaFX browser debugger.
- Rahman Usta has posted a video detailing how to use the Asciidoc FX project to write books.
- Yakov Fain has written a JavaFX-based Tic-Tac-Toe game in about 200 lines of code (spread over FXML, CSS, and Java files).
- Martin Andersson has written a JavaFX client for his ‘secure login and authenticated file transfers‘ project.
- Mik has created a JfxFrame API that (somewhat) mimics the Swing JFrame syntax, and allows users to not have to extend the JavaFX Application class.
That’s all folks. Catch you next week! 🙂

A slightly delayed links roundup this week – I’ve been unwell and so I wasn’t behind my PC yesterday. Now that I’m recovering, here’s the links from the last week:
- Marco Jakob has posted a tutorial for the JavaFX dialogs API that is coming in JavaFX 8u40.
- Speaking of the new dialogs API, Jesus Luna Quiroga has also posted a blog on getting started with them.
- Marco has also posted an interesting read of his opinions on JavaFX vs HTML5.
- Hendrik Ebbers has posted some thoughts on the ‘New Desktop Application Framework’ project and how DataFX may possibly integrate into it.
- Dirk Lemmerman has two posts this week. Firstly, one titled ‘2015: The Year When JavaFX Takes Over‘, and secondly, another of his JavaFX tips, this time on ListView autoscrolling.
- Amrullah Syadzili has posted a video demonstrating TiwulFX, including how to integrate a TableView with a database and export to Excel.
- Bruce Johnson let me know about a project he has been working on. He says that the application, called NvFX, is designed for “processing of NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Data). The graphical interface is entirely done in JavaFX and makes significant use of ControlsFX.” He has posted a video of the application in action for those interested.
- Jeff Frieson has posted an article about customising cell rendering in Swing and in JavaFX list controls.
- Carl has two posts this week, both to do with cut, copy, and paste support. Firstly, from MenuBar, and also from ToolBar.
That’s all for this week – catch you next week! 🙂
