Welcome to another weeks worth of Java desktop links! There are a heap of links this week, so I hope you all find something you enjoy and learn from! 🙂
- JavaFX 2.2 developer preview build 19 was released this week.
- Igor Nekrestyanov has posted about drop-in resources when using the native packaging feature in JavaFX 2.2.
- Tom Schindl has announced e(fx)clipse 0.1.0 has been released, which includes a huge number of new features for things like native packaging, splash screens, Scene Builder integration, and a lot more.
- For those of you who want a logarithmic scale in the JavaFX charts API, it’s your lucky day: Kevin Senechal has posted an implementation you can drop into your own apps!
- Roger Brinkley interviewed me for the Java Spotlight Podcast whilst he was on vacation in New Zealand. Of course the topics covered are all to do with my area of focus: JavaFX UI controls.
- Ander Ruiz and I released Scenic View 1.1 beta build 7, and based on the feedback we think this may be the last beta release before a final release of 1.1 this week.
- The UGate blog has posted part three of the JavaFX programmatic POJO expression bindings posts. You can find part one and two at their respective links.
- Chika Okereke has blogged about PDF to JavaFX conversions, this time covering fade-in transitions in JavaFX.
- Andreas Billmann has two blog posts this week. Firstly, he shares some code on how to create a glowing icon button to catch users attention, and building on top of this he then shares code which shows small (and possibly animated) icons on top of a button, again to catch the users attention. This kind of code should be polished and added to the JFXtras project!
- José Pereda continues to blog on his work around his MatrixPanel control, this week showing animated traffic signs.
- WichitSombat has posted a YouTube video on how to set up a development environment for JavaFX using IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 11.0.2.
- Thierry Wasyl has posted two posts this week. Firstly he talks about keyboard shortcuts and mnemonics in JavaFX 2, and secondly he has posted another video of his TweetWallFX application.
That’s all folks! Catch you all in a weeks time… 🙂
