Sorry for the delay to this weeks Java desktops links – I have been extra busy and this weekly post takes surprisingly long to compile. Regardless, we’re here now, and that’s the main thing 🙂
- Kirill Grouchnikov (@kirillcool ) has been busy with his substance project this week. In three posts, he talks about colour scheme association kinds , providing combobox selection to change the Substance skin , and providing decoration area support for lists, trees, and tables in Substance .
- In addition, Kirill noted on Twitter that he has updated the Substance documentation .
- Danny Coward (@theplanetarium ) has a post showing off a Java Swing application that he thinks is pretty neat .
- Ken Orr has a very interesting post on creating punched out buttons with inner shadows , a.k.a the Mac OS look.
- Andy Hedges (@buzzkills ) asked me to mention his Twitterati project, which is a Twitter client written in Swing .
- Tim Boudreau posts about a swing UI validation library that he has written . He is very keen to hear your feedback on it.
- A discussion on the SwingLabs forum has highlighted that perhaps Swing won’t be getting painter support in Java 7 , as many people had anticipated.
- Danny Coward posted that the Java ME SDK3 has been released , which has some good news for JavaFX developers: it allows for you to profile your mobile JavaFX applications and identify hotspots.
- Following on from this, Michael Heinrichs has a post on how to profile JavaFX mobile applications .
- Stephen Chin has announced that JFXtras Core 0.4 has been released . It sounds like a huge number of updates have been included in this release. Additionally, the project has been split into three sub-projects: core, test and samples.
- John O’Conner has a quick tip on how to print output to a console , which is obviously very useful when debugging your applications.
- Vaibhav has two blog posts, the first demoing the ability of JavaFX to use web services to show maps , and the other about mixing shape nodes in JavaFX .
- Rakesh Menon has two posts this week, one about displaying images using JavaFX and the other about using web services with JavaFX .
That’s it for another week. Again, sorry for the delays – it’s was difficult to find the hour or so it takes to publish this weekly post this week. Have a great week (what’s left of it) 🙂
