- Gerrit Grunwald has released another little fun Friday component – a button that transforms into a progress indicator – very nice!
- Samir Hadzic has two posts this week. Firstly, he has a post about ‘close options for TabPane‘, and secondly, a post about the importance of image caching when dealing with lots of images in JavaFX.
- I released Scenic View 9.0.0, which should only be used by people actually running JDK 9 – because it won’t work under JDK 8!
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.
I’ve just tried to start the JDK8 variant of Scenic View, but could not start it due to ClassNotFound (the application could not find com.sun.tools.attach.AttachNotSupportedException). I’m using Oracles JDK 8 build for Linux on my Ubuntu machine, so I thought, that should be not the issue. Do you have any suggestions?
And yes: I’ve tried to start it with
java -cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/lib/tools.jar:/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/ext/jfxrt.jar -jar scenicView.jar
