Hi folks – and welcome to yet another Java desktop links of the week. As per usual I’ve got a selection of interesting and informative posts for you to peruse this week, and I hope you all enjoy!
Whilst I’m writing this I realise that, rather obviously, we’re a week out from JavaOne in San Francisco. I will be there, and of course look I’m really looking forward to catching up with plenty of you. However, the flipside of this is that I will be traveling for the next two weeks, and
unless someone wants to step up and be the guest editor for the next two weeks (email me for details), things may be a little quiet around here so now I have a guest editor filling in for me. You’ll find out who it is next week! I will try my best to get some posts out covering all the news, but don’t hold me to it! Anywho – on with the links! 🙂
- Gerrit Grunwald and I both blogged about how, given our JavaOne sessions cover exactly the same content, we’ve decided to shuffle the content a little, to make things more useful to you, the audience of our talks.
- Speaking of Gerrit, he has blogged over at the Canoo RIA blog, about taking care of the JavaFX scenegraph (i.e. options for rendering inside the scenegraph, in particular, node-based vs canvas-based).
- Benjamin Jung has started working on an ‘fx-guice‘ project that aims to provide ‘Google Guice integration for FXML-based JavaFX 2 applications’.
- Rob Terpilowski has blogged about adding JavaFX components built with Scene Builder / FXML to a NetBeans RCP application.
- Laurent Nicolas has created a JavaFX radial menu.
- Narayan Maharjan has two posts this week. Firstly, he talks about his JavaFX ‘live view’ functionality, that is, taking a screenshot of the users desktop windows, etc (note that this uses AWT / Java2D API). Secondly, he has a post talking about his ‘Feather Edit‘ project, which makes use of his live view functionality to take screenshots of playing movies.
- Mark Anro Silva has created the classic ‘connect four’ game in JavaFX.
- The Excelsior JET folks have announced (to their surprise) that Excelsior JET already works with JavaFX 2 based applications.
- The Oracle Technical Network website has a short whitepaper up on a JavaFX user: Celer Technologies.
- Jyloo Software has announced the release of Synthetica 2.16 and SyntheticaAddons 1.7.1.
- Andres Almiray was interviewed on the Grails Podcast about Griffon.
That’s all for this week. Once again, I look forward to catching up with as many of you as possible at JavaOne. Please come up and say hello – it’ll make my day 🙂
