Java desktop links of the week, July 19

Well, what an interesting week we had in the JavaFX world. It started off with Kirill Grouchnikov posting his thoughts that JavaFX is a train wreck. This created a number of threads around the web discussing this. At the same time Stephen Chin posted his petition to open source JavaFX. So much controversy, so many (sometimes anonymous) comments – what a week! For what it’s worth, I’m just reporting the news here, not endorsing or disagreeing with any of it 🙂




  • Andres Almiray has posted another Griffon 0.9 sneak peek, this time looking at runtime enhancements.

Whew! What a week. Catch you all again in a week.
