Another week, another bunch of good links right across the Java desktop ecosystem. Let’s dive right into the links of the week!
- Kirill Grouchnikov has posted release candidates of Trident, Flamingo and Substance. The final releases for all the projects are scheduled for August 9. Only bugs will be fixed until that date.
- Gerrit Grunwald has posted about painting conical gradients in Java2D.
- I posted an example of how to create a ListView in JavaFX that supports multiple selection over at FX Experience.
- dooApp posted an introduction to their FXForm project. FXForm is a library providing automatic form generation for JavaFX objects.
- Carl Dea has published a JavaFX Tabbed Pane and Tab Panel prototype.
- Sébastien Stormacq has posted about creating an animated chart in JavaFX.
- Srikanth Shenoy continues with the third part of his series titled ‘Effective JavaFX Architecture’. This week his post looks at ‘Asynchronous calls, Command Pattern and Testability‘.
- As part of his series of posts, Srikanth has also been creating a JavaFX project called fxobjects. From the website, “FxObjects is a JavaFX Application Framework that enables methodical, pattern based and test friendly way of developing JavaFX applications based on ideas and best practices distilled from real life usage”.
- Due to the amount of echoing going on about JavaFX and it’s future, most of which consist of references to each other (with very little further information), I’ve picked out Max Katz’s post this week as the only one I’m including. His post discusses what he believes the future of JavaFX looks like, both the good and the bad points.
- Andres Almiray announced the release of Griffon 0.9.
- Andres Almiray was recently interviewed by DZone about Griffon 0.9, the road behind and the road ahead.
- The Griffon Guide 0.9 Reference Documentation has been posted, which is a work-in-progress.
So, in general, a week of impressive links, with some new releases, and interesting discussions and demonstrations. Keep it up folks, and I’ll catch you all again in a weeks time.
