Hello world! 🙂 Here are the links for this week – enjoy 🙂
- Carl Dea presented at the Montgomery County Java User Group, but unfortunately I can’t open the Google Docs link here – maybe you’ll have better luck.
- Mark Heckler has posted about how to get started (fast) with NetBeans 7.2, Scene Builder and JavaFX 2.
- José Pereda has posted part two of his series on the new MatrixPanel control that he has now c0ntributed to the JFXtras project.
- Peter Pilgrim has blogged about ScalaFX and some workarounds for SBT issues.
- Narayan Maharjan has blogged about how to write pre-loaders for JavaFX applications.
- Thierry Wasyl has a blog post detailing the properties and binding APIs in JavaFX 2.
- Steve Hannah has a blog post titled “JavaFX has finally arrived“, where he explains his first impressions with JavaFX 2. I should note there is one mistake in this post: there is no need for Swing if you want your menubars to appear in the Mac global menubar area – simply call menuBar.setUseSystemMenuBar(true) in JavaFX 2.1 and later releases.
- Karl Schaefer has announced that SwingX 1.6.4 has been released. In the post he says that there were “not a lot of changes in this revision. The key thrust was to make sure that we were correctly producing sources and javadoc jars for the swingx-all rollup module.”
- JIDE Software has released version 3.4.4 of their suite of libraries.
- Harsh Raval has four posts up covering creating ‘chat bubbles’ in Java2D, putting an image inside a JTextField, creating animated infinite progress bars in Swing, and creating circular progress bars in Swing.
- In other news, NetBeans 7.2 was released this week. You can read an overview of the improvements, or go to the NetBeans website to download it.
Catch you next week!
