Want to know how easy it is to create a 3D pie chart with the new JavaFX 1.2 chart API? (more…)
There’s a great article over at InformIT by Jim Clarke about what’s new in JavaFX 1.2. Jim has been involved in JavaFX both contributing to the source and building apps since before I got involved last year.
From the article:
Once you start using JavaFX, I think you’ll find that the language is powerful yet very concise. You’ll be amazed at the things you can do with very little code. I have only discussed a few of the new JavaFX 1.2 user interface features—there’s much more to the entire JavaFX platform. I hope that this overview will provide just enough enticement for you to start your own exploration.
Jasper and I are back at the hotel working on writing blogs and building the site design and thinking a lot about JavaOne 2009 which has just about come to an end, and about what our direction is going to be for the next year for Controls and JavaFX in general.
