Although the JavaFX platform is only a few months old -- its initial full release was in December 2009 -- people are already building some really cool applications with it. A new article, titled JavaFX App-O-Rama: Applications From the Community, highlights three community based projects that are producing cool, innovative JavaFX applications.

Here are some other good places to find cool JavaFX applications, sample programs, and demonstrations:

JavaFX Learning Curve Journal Updates

In August and September 2007, the Sun Developer Network staff started a Learning Curve Journal, a series designed to help users get started with the JavaFX Script programming language (shortened to JavaFX Script hereafter). A number of significant advances have been made to the language since then. Perhaps most important is the availability of a compiler-based version of JavaFX Script, which replaces the earlier interpreter-based version of the language. The Learning Curve Journal described the use of the interpreter-based version of the language. The Learning Curve Journal has been updated to show you how to use the compiler-based version of the language. Other changes have been made to make the articles current.

Part 1: Exploring JavaFX Script gets you started with a simple JavaFX program, that is, a simple program written in the JavaFX Script language. You'll learn how to set up your environment for programming in JavaFX Script and how to build and run a JavaFX program.

Part 2: Declarative User Interfaces focuses on the declarative style of coding enabled by JavaFX Script. You'll see how this style can make the code for a graphical application simpler and more intuitive.

Part 3: JavaFX Script Functions shows you how to use JavaFX Script functions to implement actions in a Java FX program.

Part 4: Accessing a Web Service demonstrates how to use JavaFX Script to access a web service. In doing that, it also shows how easy it is to access Java technology classes, such as Swing classes, from JavaFX Script.
