Out now!

JAX Magazine November - featuring JavaFX, Akka and Mihini

It’s hard to believe that 2012 is almost over and there’s only one more issue left to round the year out. This year really was the year of the community.

If you’ve been following the site for the past 12 months, you’re likely sick of us talking about innovation being at an all-time high for Java and the JVM. But it’s true. It’s an exciting time to be contributing to open source project, with so many new avenues to explore. The Web, data, the cloud to name just a few

November’s issue of JAX Magazine reflects this vibrant spectrum where anything is possible within the JVM. Contained within this bumper issue, we have:

  • JavaFX enthusiast Carl Dea shows us the potential of the regenerated technology, JavaFX 2.x, using the Canvas API to build a Tron Legacy-style clock
  • Typesafe’s Jamie Allen gives us a crash course on using Akka actors effectively
  • Uwe Friedrichsen is our sensei, deciphering the terms of Software Craftsmanship and how to become a black belt in the practice
  • Benjamin Cabe introduces the latest Eclipse M2M project Mihini - and why it might be the most important arrival yet!

Aside from some meaty tutorials, we talk to TomEE’s David Blevins about the Tomcat stack gaining plenty of attention. We even manage to prise ourselves away from the editorial desk to JAX London to catch some of Java’s most engaging speakers. Finally, we attempt to answer in the State of Play just who is going to come out on top in the cloud infrastructure race. OpenStack and CloudStack might be making all the noise, but does someone else hold the key?

With that intrigue, we hope you’ll pick up a copy. Download the latest JAX Magazine as a PDF, through the Apple Store or Google Play.

Happy perusing!
