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 quiet week this week, but some good releases and posts nonetheless. Enjoy!
- ControlsFX 8.40.9 and 8.20.9 were released this week. This was a major bug fix release primarily, so it is encouraged that everyone that is using JavaFX 8u20 or later upgrade to these releases.
- René Jahn has a post on custom comboboxes with JavaFX.
- Griffon 2.3.0 has been released, with a number of JavaFX related improvements.
- Dirk Lemmermann has posted another JavaFX tip, titled ‘Watch Your Skin‘.
Catch you all next week.
javaFx will be more popular if Oracle overcomes the big poblem we are facing as gui/front-end java developper:
– How can we publish javaFx/or/Swing over Internet … The latest Chrome can not anymore accept javaWebApplication.Chrome is important.
This is a bif issue, once this is dolved, java-guy -via javaFx) has a market.
I agree and don’t agree. The web ecosystem is superimportent and currently Java FX can’t compete with flash.
Chrome is less important. Currently people prefer chrome because it’s bundled with flash but things change.
Focus on supporting JavaFX in Web Engine. It looks extremely bad if even JavaFX doesn’t support JavaFX. Then we can start looking at other browsers.
But personally I think that a Web Engine browser should be produced and put out there as a real alternative to Firefox and Chrome. Fully open source, customizable, secure (written in Java) and finally with superior support for Rich applications.
