There is a heap of links this week, and I’m already running late, so lets just jump right into them. Enjoy! 🙂
- Tom Schindl has released an updated e(fx)clipse all-in-one download, with the latest Luna RC1 code.
- Steven Van Impe has released his JavaFX game on the iOS App Store.
- Carl Dea has blogged about a new feature coming in JavaFX 8u20: support for always-on-top windows.
- Florian Brunner has released Drombler FX 4.0, which brings with it a minimum requirement of JavaFX 8.0.
- Rob Terpilowski has two posts this week. Firstly, he has released GMapsFX 1.1.0, which includes a number of new features and bug fixes. Secondly, he has a post about how to add custom components to Scene Builder 2.0.
- Jens Deters has announced the release of FontAwesomeFX 8.0.7, which includes support for the recently released FontAwesome 4.1.0.
- Hendrik Ebbers has started work on some DataFX tutorials. His first tutorial is a simple one to give you an understanding of DataFX.
- Sébastien Bordes has posted a video of his first steps towards a workbench in his JRebirth application framework library.
- Nathan Howard has posted a tutorial on how to change color space from Swing to JavaFX (and vice versa).
- Bertrand Goetzmann has started a port of afterburner.fx, called afterburner.gfx (not the ‘g’). The difference? afterburner.gfx is designed to work with GroovyFX views.
- Christian Stancalau has a post on integrating JavaFX and Spring.
- Dr Malcolm Lidierth let me know about WaterlooFX, an open source scientific charting library being written for JavaFX. There is an applet you can run on the linked site – very impressive work so far!
- Speaking of charts, David Gilbert (of JFreeChart fame) contacted me about his work on an interesting open source project. I’ll quote him “To get Orson Charts and JFreeChart (which are both Graphics2D based) working on JavaFX, I have created a Graphics2D implementation that draws to the JavaFX Canvas. The code is posted to GitHub.I included a simple demo that renders a (static) JFreeChart instance to a Canvas, plus a more extensive and interactive demo for Orson Charts.” Great stuff
That was the quickest Java desktop links post ever – sorry about the rush, things are a bit manic at the moment! 🙂 In any case, keep up the great work folks, you’re doing an amazing job.
