Hi all, and welcome to another weeks worth of Java desktop links. Once again I’m needing to put the call out for anyone interested in being a guest editor to email me – next week I will be at Devoxx and unable to write the entire post myself. Anywho – back to the links – enjoy! 🙂
- Canoo have created the open-dolphin.org website for the Dolphin project. From the website, “Dolphin is an open-source software library that presents Java Enterprise applications through Java Desktop applications”.
- Rob Terp has blogged about his extreme GUI makeover.
- The dialogs component I released last week has already been ported back to work with JavaFX 2.2 by Marco Jakob. Great work! 🙂
- If European time zones aren’t too convenient for you, but you are interested in Stephen Chin’s Night Hacking tour, you can watch all his interviews at your convenience on YouTube.
- mihosoft has contributed his VFXWindows code to the JFXtras project. VFXWindows is essentially internal panes for your JavaFX application.
- Tom Schindl has two posts out this week. Firstly, he posted three videos on the following topics: e4 on JavaFX, creating a JavaFX IDE, and creating a JavaFX desktop. Secondly, he posted about fxpackager for JavaFX OSGi applications.
- Hendrik Ebbers has also posted two posts this week. Firstly he has a post about building JavaFX applications with Maven, and secondly about adding JavaFX to your Eclipse project.
- Speaking of Maven, Daniel Zwolenski has posted his Maven tooling for JavaFX to GitHub. As he said to me, “this basically wraps the packaging tools so they are accessible via maven cutting out a lot of the confusing and complicated hacks people are currently having to use to build JavaFX with maven”.
- Leon Atherton has a blog detailing how to convert from BufferedImage to a JavaFX 2.2 Image.
- René Jahn has posted a few links to various JavaFX embedded articles to help people get started.
- Graham Smith has blogged about editing null values in a JavaFX TableView cell.
- Peter Pilgrim has posted about building OpenJFX 2.2.
- Lyndon Armitage has created a JavaFX application to download Minecraft player skins.
- Michael Williams has a post about creating native installers for Windows using JavaFX 2.2 and NetBeans 7.2.
That’s it for another week. Hopefully there will be another post next week, but that depends on someone stepping up and offering to guest post for me. Email me for the details! 🙂
