Hi all – welcome to another weeks worth of links. I really hope you find something new and enjoyable that you can learn from! 🙂
- I can’t direct link to it, but the latest Java Magazine issue has a number of interesting articles related to JavaFX. You really should consider subscribing (it’s free!).
- Gerrit Grunwald has posted a good post about pushing pixels with the new (in JavaFX 2.2) PixelWriter class. With JavaFX 2.2 there is a lot more support in the API for working at a lower-level than what was previously available with the retained-mode scenegraph. This has been something people have been asking for for a very long time, and personally I’m very excited to see what people can do with it! 🙂
- Stephen Chin has written a DZone Ref Card for JavaFX 2. If you’re new to JavaFX, this will be very useful for you, I would imagine.
- The Canoo blog has posted about styling your JavaFX user interface using CSS vs Java code.
- I interviewed Tom Schindl (the developer behind e(fx)clipse – the JavaFX tooling for Eclipse project). Obviously the main purpose of the discussion was to get a good understanding of the e(fx)clipse project, and I imagine it might be useful for many readers who like to use the Eclipse IDE for their development.
- IDR solutions have created a JavaFX-specific page for their JavaFX PDF viewer library. Note that this is a commercial library, but I think it is cool enough to mention in these link roundups.
- Narayan Maharjan has created a blog post detailing how to customise the JavaFX ScrollBar control using CSS.
- Geertjan Wielenga has blogged about integrating JavaFX Charts into the NetBeans RCP.
- kamiltoszek has blogged about controlling when the FXML controller class is instantiated.
- Andres Almiray has announced the release of Griffon 1.0.1, which is the first maintenance release of the 1.0.x series.
- In a separate post, Andres has blogged about creating dialogs in JavaFX (using Griffon).
Now, it’s back to work for me! Catch you all in a weeks time 🙂
