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.

Java desktop links of the week, February 27

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.

  • Kevin Rushforth posted to the openjfx-dev mailing list encouraging everyone to start testing their software on JDK 9, because a lot has changed in there with regards to modularisation, removing impl API, etc. It is critical that bugs be reported now and not after release, so get testing!
  • Florian Brunner has released Drombler FX 0.9. Drombler FX is a modular application framework for JavaFX.
  • Gerrit Grunwald has done another of his ‘Friday Fun’ releases, this time combining the world map control with the heat map control he has previously built, and the result is pretty cool!
  • The AdoptOpenJDK project has a jitwatch project written with JavaFX that analyses and visualises the Java HotSpot JIT compiler.
  • Chris Newland has released part three of his DemoFX performance testbed / demoscene callout 🙂 The YouTube video of it is very cool…

Java desktop links of the week, January 9

Another year already! I hope everyone had a good break over the holiday period. I know I did, although I have to say I wish it were longer! In any case, I’ve been away on holiday and not keeping a close eye on the latest Java desktop news, so apologies to people who worked hard and who I have missed. Please email me and I’ll be sure to include you next week.

Java desktop links of the week, December 19

I’ve spent the last two weeks crammed inside a steel tube doing a full trip around the world bringing JavaFX joy to developers everywhere 🙂 Because of this, I missed out on posting the links for the last few weeks, and equally bad, I became so busy during that time I couldn’t keep track of things that happened. Therefore, I apologise in advance if I missed your news from the last few weeks. Please email me to let me know, and I will include it next week.
