Java desktop links of the week, March 27

A number of links this week, including:

Java desktop links of the week, March 20

A relatively quiet week this week, but a few nice links nonetheless:

  • Edvin Syse released FXLauncher 1.0.15, and auto updating launcher for JavaFX Applications.
  • GlazedLists 1.10.0 has been released. As Holger Brands put it to me: “It now features an JavaFX extension, which contains a bridge between EventList and ObservableList. EventObservableList is an implementation of ObservableList that is backed by a source EventList. That way you can use your existing EventList pipelines and connect it to the JavaFX world.” Very nice! 🙂
  • Stephan Janssen has posted about the ‘brand new “My Devoxx”? mobile app‘, built using JavaFX (using Gluon) and running on iOS and Android, which is being used for all Devoxx conferences, including Devoxx US coming up this week.

Sorry for the irregular posts recently – whilst on paternity leave my time was limited and it wasn’t always easy to get posts out. Now that I’m back at work I can more easily get things written. Apologies to anyone I may have missed – keeping an eye out on latest developments was also a little difficult. Anyway, there’s a lot to cover this week:

I missed last weeks links due to the arrival of my second child, and I’ve been on paternity leave since then. Therefore, I might have missed some links, but feel free to email me and I’ll get them included next week.

  • Thomas Nield has released RxKotlinFX 1.1.0 and 2.0.0 releases.
  • Gerrit Grunwald has released an updated TilesFX with improved map tile support.
  • Dan Newton has written about editable tables in JavaFX. Normally I would review these articles for accuracy before linking to them, but time constraints mean I haven’t this time around – hopefully it is accurate 🙂
  • Dan Newton has also posted about ‘Size does matter (in JavaFX)’, an article about configuring JavaFX charts.
  • Markus Falkhausen has finished his class diagrams project for JavaFX.

  • Gerrit Grunwald is doing awesome work on TilesFX, this week improving the sizing strategy to not waste space as the tiles area is resized.
  • Tom Schindl has added support in e(fx)clipse for Java 9 – great work!
  • Dirk Lemmermann has posted about the benefits of writing custom layouts in JavaFX for performance and flexibility reasons. As the JavaFX UI controls tech lead, one of the core things I spend a huge amount of my time on is custom layouts, and I agree that it is an incredibly useful skill for people to have. It opens up a world of possibilities to getting exactly what you want, and often times is a far quicker way of creating the look you want, compared with using multiple nested layout containers!
