Hi all. Sorry about the lack of a post last week – I just got back from JavaOne India and was overloaded with work which I had to catch up on. However, I was collecting links all last week as well, and there are now a heap of good links to read through this week! Enjoy!
- JavaFX 2.1 has barely been released and already we’ve got builds of JavaFX 2.2 available. In fact, we’re already up to build 08 of JavaFX 2.2, and build 37 of Scene Builder 1.0.
- I released a tool (built initially by Amy Fowler) that we use inside Oracle called Scenic View. I am now working with Ander Ruiz on an updated release which includes a number of new features. You can see a screenshot at the end of this post of the new version (which is still in active development (both the UI and the functionality)).
- Michael Heinrichs, a fellow team members in the JavaFX team at Oracle, was interviewed at JFokus, and the video is now online.
- There was quite a bit of noise regarding people getting JavaFX up and running on the Raspberry Pi device.
- Weiqi Gao has got a very in-depth article up online about his experiments with JavaFX 3D scenes.
- Tom Schindl has noted that he is seeing improvements in Netbeans JavaFX support that already exist in his e(fx)clipse project (but that it is great that his ‘competition’ is improving functionality).
- Java_Buddy has blogged about how to get javadoc documentation to appear in NetBeans when working with JavaFX API.
- Thierry Wasyl has started work on building an application called TweetWallFX. He already has a blog post detailing the construction of the UI, as well as a YouTube video of the application.
- Narayan Maharjan has blogged about JavaFX Drag and Drop support in ListView.
- Geertjan Wielenga has blogged about using JavaFX charts in place of the usual charts in VisualVM.
- Geertjan has also recently presented on using JavaFX in pluggable corporate applications.
- Stephen Chin was at JavaOne Hyderabad as well, where he presented on JavaFX and HTML 5.
- Mohammed Sanaulla has blogged about how he uses JavaFX charts in Swing applications. In a separate post, he also posts part one about developing a simple Todo application using JavaFX, Java and MongoDB.
- Dustin Marx has written a JavaFX-Based SimpleDateFormat demonstrator.
- Nitin Gupta at e-zest has an article up on ahead of time compilation for JavaFX 2.0 applications.
- Anton Epple has added motion blur to his physics-based pinball game.
- Jyloo Software announced the release of Synthetica 2.15 and SyntheticaAddons 1.7.
- JIDE Software announced the release of version 3.4.0 of their suite of libraries.
Scenic View Sneak-peak
Finally, here is the current, in-development version of Scenic View that I am working on with Ander Ruiz. I will release an updated version of Scenic View as soon as all the features are in place.
That’s that for another week. Catch you all next week
