Java desktop links of the week, March 2

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

JavaFX

  • 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.”

Miscellaneous

  • 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!

JavaFX

  • 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! :-)
