Another quiet week this week. This is a very common pattern in the lead up to JavaOne – people tend to start working on their JavaOne projects and have less time for blogging. Anyway, enjoy the links! :-)

Catch you all next week!

A relatively quiet week this week, which is good for me as I have a tonne of work to get into! :-)

  • I did a very long blog post this week about bringing dialogs to JavaFX. In short, JavaFX 8u40 will be getting a dialog API, but it isn’t yet decided what the API will look like, so now is your chance to influence the API. You should definitely read the linked blog post first, and then you should go to RT-12643, read all of the comments there, and then post your feedback if you have anything to add! :-)
  • Hendrik Ebbers has posted another sneak peak of the AeroFX project, a Windows 7 ‘native’ skin for JavaFX 8.
  • Andres Almiray has posted on boosting JavaFX application development, where he talks about afterburner.fx, afterburner.gfx, and lazybones.
  • Stephen Chin has posted a video from Stuart Marks’ recent presentation at the Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group, where he spoke on the topic of Java 8 and JavaFX.
  • Thomas Bolz has posted version 1.4 of his BaufiFX application, a mortgage calculator and financial analysis tool written in JavaFX.
  • Rene Jahn has posted on how he built a live ticker for the football world cup using headless JavaFX and the new ‘Monocle’ Glass windowing component of JavaFX. For those unfamiliar with Monocle, you can read more at the JavaFX wiki.

That’s all folks – short and sweet! Catch you all next week! :-)

Another week rolls around, and with it another weeks worth of links. Enjoy! :-)

JavaFX

  • Tomas Mikula has two posts this week. Firstly, a post titled ‘detecting when the mouse stays still over a node‘. Secondly, he has a post on ‘separation of View and Controller in JavaFX Controls’, which is an interesting read, especially for me as JavaFX needs to have more public API around third party controls. The JavaFX Jira issue (RT-21598) is the best place to discuss this further.
  • Hendrik Ebbers has posted a sneak peak of some work currently being undertaken, to create a Windows 7-esque JavaFX style that is being called AeroFX. Already it looks very promising! This is a follow-on from the very successful AquaFX look developed previously.
  • Tom Eugelink has posted on his circle popup menu progress, which is available for download as part of JFXtras-8.0-SNAPSHOT-r2.
  • Jens Deters has released MQTT.FX 0.0.3. This is an application for publishing and subscribing to MQTT topics, which is commonly used in IOT projects.
  • Sébastien Bordes has announced the release of JRebirth Application Framework 7.7.2. This new version “fixes some troubles experienced with demo applications like bad image loading (by presentation engine) or animation failure that lead to an empty slide.”
  • The ReportMill blog has two posts this week. Firstly, they have announced that SnapCode, their IDE, is the ‘first and only pure JavaFX IDE‘. Secondly, they have posted some sample code for getting the visual bounds of a node. There is a Jira issue (RT-37509) for this functionality, and as I posted in there, I really wish someone would develop the code to make it possible to have a general-purpose glasspane in JavaFX (especially one that supports knowing the visual bounds of a node after scrolling, clipping, effects, etc).
  • Arnaud Nouard has posted that he has updated his Undecorator library for JavaFX 8.0, and that he has used this library in the development (and now release) of his aLive application, intended to “help music bands to organize rehearsals”.

That’s all folks. Catch you next week!

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

That’s all for this week – catch you all in a weeks time.

That’s all folks. Now I can get outside and enjoy the public holiday here in New Zealand! :-)

There is a heap of links this week, and I’m already running late, so lets just jump right into them. Enjoy! :-)

That was the quickest JavaFX links post ever – sorry about the rush, things are a bit manic at the moment! :-) In any case, keep up the great work folks, you’re doing an amazing job.

Another week, and a heap more links! Great work folks, you’re up to all kinds of cool things! :-)
