Hi all! Sorry for not posting last week, I was just overloaded with work and was in the US. Now that I am back home in good old New Zealand, let’s get going with the links for the last two weeks! I should quickly note that due to all the travel and distractions I may have missed some posts. Feel free to either leave the links in the comments or else email me and I can include them next week.
- Oracle has released a summary of the key points raised at JavaOne for JavaFX and Java SE.
- With JavaOne over, the recordings are already online (and as far as I know, freely available). There are way too many links to good sessions you should listen to, so I won’t link to any directly – the best thing to do is go to the site and refine the search criteria to find the sessions you’re interested in. Tori Wieldt has summarised the options a bit more too.
- The major announcement from JavaOne this year (related to JavaFX anyway) was that it will be fully open source by the end of 2012.
- If you’re interested in embedded hardware, you should definitely check out the JavaFX developer preview release for ARM. You can also check out the documentation for more information.
- During the technical keynote, Canoo announced the release and open sourcing of their ‘Dolphin’ framework for JavaFX. Dolphin is Canoo’s new remoting framework for rich web applications
- Tom Schindl has three posts this week. Firstly, he has announced the release of e(fx)clipse 0.1.1, which includes a bunch of new features. Secondly he has put up the slides from his sessions at JavaOne. Finally, he has put up a video demonstrating how he combines Eclipse technology and JavaFX to create, essentially, a JavaFX-based IDE.
- Dustin Marx, in his usual style, has a number of in-depth JavaOne-related blog posts. Those of most interest to readers of this blog will likely include his coverage of Richard Bair’s JavaFX graphics tips and tricks and David Hill’s JavaFX on smart embedded devices.
- DooApp have announced an updated release of their FXForm2 project (which can automatically generate forms from Java beans).
- Laurent Nicolas has updated his JavaFX radial menu control.
- I blogged about how I hacked in cell spanning support in TableView. This was on the back of my ‘Hacking TableView’ talk at JavaOne (which you can listen to at your own leisure by following the links above).
- NetBeans 7.3 is in development, but you can already check out the list of new features they’re working on related to JavaFX.
- Danno Ferrin has started mirroring OpenJFX on BitBucket.
- Gerrit Grunwald and Jim Weaver have started JavaFXCommunity.com, which aggregates the blog posts of a number of the members of the community.
- Tom Eugelink has started work on an ‘Agenda’ control (much like Google Calendar or MiGCalendar). At present you can find the source code in the JFXtras-Labs github repo, and also see an early screenshot on his website.
- Janice J. Heiss has blogged about what we were showing at JavaOne in the demo grounds.
- In a separate post, Janice blogged about Simon Ritter’s JavaFX on the Raspberry Pi session, and has included a heap of detail for those interested in JavaFX on this device.
- Patrick Champion has blogged about ‘Put it all together (JavaFX 2.x Custom component, FXML, JAX-RS 2.0 client API)‘.
- Jim Driscoll has started a series on his blog about creating a Groovy-based JavaFX Turtle implementation. He steps through his reasoning, introducing the DSL, and getting started on the implementation.
