We’re continuing our weekly programming pub quiz with JavaFX! How well do you know this popular platform for creating and deploying Java apps?
Every Monday we take a step back and take a look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week was a particularly exciting one for Android enthusiasts since Google made some big announcements at its I/O conference!
Things are indeed moving forward! It’s been just a couple of months since Oracle announced they would be decoupling JavaFX from the JDK starting with JDK 11 and now the first Early Access build of standalone JavaFX SDK is here.
How has JavaFX evolved since it was announced at JavaOne in 2007? Was decoupling JavaFX from the JDK an inspired idea? In this article, Johan Vos weighs in on the news and explains why it makes perfect sense to move the development of JavaFX to an open system.
Hear ye, hear ye! Starting with JDK 11, JavaFX will be available as a separate module, decoupled from the JDK. This should encourage new contributors to engage in the open source OpenJFX community.
What is e4 and why is it different on JavaFX? In this article, Tom Schindl explains how you can develop applications and write 100% framework-free business components with e4 on JavaFX.
You might already be familiar with TestFX so you’re probably wondering why FX-Test was created. Well, you should know there are multiple reasons why the latter was created. Keep in mind that there are no releases yet.
JavaFX is now part of the Java SE 8 SDK. In this article, Java Champion Johan Vos gives us a quick overview of this essential framework and explains why you should use JavaFX instead of Swing.
Frameworks are NOT considered as a replacement for programming languages but that doesn’t mean they haven’t rocked the latter’s world. Angular, JavaFX, MicroProfile, Spring MVC, Node.js, JSF and MVC 1.0 are some of the most important players. And guess what? You‘ll find them all in this issue.
Let’s be honest: Deep into the heart of every developer there’s a craving to create a game. You can now learn to do it in JavaFX with the help of the new FX gaming library (FXGL). In this tutorial Almas Baimagambetov is going to create a very basic game.
Let’s be honest: Deep into the heart of every developer there’s a craving to create a game. You can now learn to do it in JavaFX with the help of the new FX gaming library (FXGL). The comprehensive list of features, along with the extensive documentation will allow you to start using it right away.
Currently consolidation appears in some parts of the energy system transformation in Germany, but even with the expansion and restructuring of the energy system there is still great progress to be determined . One innovation focus currently lies on the more efficient use of the well over a million wind, solar and biomass power plants that have already been built. For this purpose, fresh, new and innovative solutions are needed, and this in an industry that has to be based primarily on established and proven technologies. JavaFX can act as a bridge here. But is it actually possible to create innovative software products with JavaFX that provide the necessary reliability? A water-level and experience report from applied research.
In November 2015 Dirk Lemmermann (Freelancer) and I (Alexander Casall) had a JavaOne session about JavaFX Real World Applications. We showed a bunch of apps that we made for our customers or where we had contributions in development. This article summarizes the talk by showing the applications that we’ve talked about. In addition, I asked some other JavaFX developers if they want to contribute their apps to this blog post.
