Must….resist….May the 4th…..joke…..enjoy….links! :-)

Have a great week – and may the fourth be with you…dang! :-)

A few interesting posts this week. Enjoy! :-)

That’s all folks – catch you again next week!

A very quiet week in the JavaFX world!

  • The Gluon guys (as well as members of the JavaFX community, such as Jens Deters and José Pereda) have announced the availability of the open source ‘Down’ library, a sub-component of the forth-coming (and commercial) Gluon Charm library. Down is useful for mobile JavaFX application developers to create software that makes use of specific elements of the mobile hardware that they run on.
  • René Jahn has posted about ‘JavaFX + Android + Live Preview‘. This post talks about using their (commercial) VisionX product and its live preview feature, to develop JavaFX applications for Android (using JavaFXPorts) without having to deploy to the device for testing.
  • Chris Newland has posted a second ‘demo scene’ video created using JavaFX. It is really quite impressive seeing JavaFX put through its paces and not breaking a sweat at 60fps.

That’s all for this week. Catch you again in a weeks time! :-)

I missed last weeks post due to it falling on Easter Monday and not being around my computer. Therefore, this week there are a heap of links. Enjoy!

That’s all folks. Catch you next week! :-)

A very quiet week this week. One thing to note is that the JavaOne call for proposals is now open – so get your proposals in today!

That’s all! Catch you next week :-)

A heap of interesting links this week – enjoy :-)

That’s all folks. Keep up the great work and I’ll be back next week to link to it all again :-)

Another week, another bunch of links. Enjoy! :-)

  • Florian Brunner has announced that version 0.6 of Drombler FX has been released. This is mainly a bug fix release.
  • Geertjan Wielenga has posted a video showing speed improvements in the JavaFX HTMLEditor control in JDK 8u40.
  • René Jahn has a post about a simple DB application written with JavaFX.
  • Stefan Saring has posted about his SportsTracker app, which was recently ported from Swing to JavaFX. As noted on the website, “SportsTracker is an application for people who want to track their sporting activities. It is not bound to a specific kind of sport, the user can create categories for all sport types such as cycling, running, swimming or tennis.”
  • The JSR 377 project (a.k.a ‘Desktop|Embedded Application API’) has a new website, for those of you interested in following along.
  • Griffon 2.2.0 has been released. This release includes a few new features, as well as an API breaking change – so tread carefully!

Catch you all next week.

A huge number of very interesting posts this week, so lets just get straight into it!

  • Tom Schindl has been extraordinarily busy, working on a very interesting code editor project called Compensator.
  • The F(x)yz project has released a sampler application that demonstrates all their 3D goodness.
  • Jens Deters has announced FontAwesomeFX 8.1.
  • Dirk Lemmerman has a post on JavaFX path clipping.
  • Johan Vos has published an article on cloud based monitoring of IoT devices (using JavaFX).
  • Chris Joakim has posted a new project on GitHub called fxml2j that sounds pretty neat. Quoting the website: “The ‘fxml2j’ library will BOTH generate an implementation of the Java Controller class, as well as show you ongoing “diffs” between your FXML and Controller class as each of these two code artifacts evolves. The library will discover the fx:id elements, and #-prefixed action methods, and generate the appropriate @FXML annotated Java code.”
  • Dirk Fauth has published ‘SWT to JavaFX migration‘.
  • Timothy Baldridge has posted a project to GitHub called fn(fx). From the website: “This library provides a functional, declarative wrapper around JavaFX. The goals are to provide a “Virtual DOM” like interface over the OOP mutability JavaFX embraces.”
  • René Jahn has posted about the JVx framework and how it is utilising JavaFX.
  • J.Zimmermann has created a JavaFX-based VNC client.
  • Lukas Eder has posted about how to ‘transform your SQL data into charts using jOOQ and JavaFX‘.

I think you’ll agree that this is a great batch of links. Keep up the great work folks – it’s great to see! :-)
