Comments:

Hello. The link you have for the "Holiday Fun with JavaFX" was an illegal copy of my post at http://eriwen.com/javafx/holiday-fun-with-javafx/ and has been taken down. In this case I'd encourage you to substitute it with something I actually have written this week: http://eriwen.com/javafx/javafx-for-the-java-developer/ or http://eriwen.com/javafx/javafx-syntaxhighlighter/

Thanks!

Eric,

Thanks for pointing this -- it did look a little weird with your name showing up while running the app after downloading it from that site. Now I know and I have fixed this with proper reference.

I will use the posts you mentioned in the comments in an upcoming entry. Thanks for your interest with JavaFX and sharing your experiences with the community.
