Hi all, welcome to another weeks worth of links! This week there are plenty of them, so please enjoy 🙂
- The Java Tutorials blog has a short post up about a new feature in JavaFX 2.2: the ability to take a snapshot of a scene and turn it into an image.
- Stephen Chin has posted two posts about JavaFX in Spring. Firstly, he posts about application initialisation, and secondly about configuration and FXML.
- Separately, Stephen has put up the slides from another of his talks, this time titled ‘Hacking JavaFX with Groovy, Clojure, Scala, and Visage‘.
- Johan Vos was interviewed on the Java Spotlight Podcast about Glassfish and JavaFX.
- Carl Dea has published part five of his JavaFX game dev tutorial. This time he focuses on sound.
- Andy Till has started investigating writing a new CSS style for JavaFX. To support this, the JFXtras team has set up a new sub-project called jfxtras-styles, which will be a home for custom JavaFX CSS style files. This is already the home of Andy’s work.
- Thomas Bolz has written about obfuscating your JavaFX code at compile time to ensure it is harder to decompile. This is well worth reading for anyone putting out commercial products using JavaFX.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has written about integrating JavaFX and Swing inside a single application.
- In a similar post, Eric Bruno has a post over at Dr Dobbs about integrating JavaFX and Swing.
- Andreas Billmann has made further progress on his JavaFX ‘MiniIcon’ animated button, and he has a blog talking about how he turned it into a ‘proper’ JavaFX UI control.
- Tom Schindl has made available a SVG to FXML command-line converter tool.
- William Markito Oliveira has an article up on OTN about ‘Oracle WebLogic RESTful Management Services: From Command Line to JavaFX‘.
- Gerrit Grunwald has returned from vacation and has created an elliptical gradient API that is now available in JFXtras.
- Christian Schudt has blogged about using Maven to build, sign and deploy JavaFX applications.
- Jeff Smith has blogged about his early work in developing a JavaFX map viewer, which he calls JFXMapPane. With a bit more work, this will likely be integrated into JFXtras.
- UGate have announced their open source ‘Arduino-Java-XBee security system‘.
- Geertjan Wielenga has five tips for Arabic Java desktop developers.
- For those interested in NetBeans, there is a NetBeans Community Day on the Sunday before JavaOne (actually, the JavaOne keynotes are also on Sunday). There are talks here on JavaFX also.
I warned you about the number of links! Keep up the great work everyone, and I’ll catch you again next week 🙂
