Recently the NetBeans Platform JavaFX Integration Tutorial was released. There were still some open issues, though, as described here in Part 1 of this series. Gail and Paul Anderson, from Anderson Software Group, picked up the gauntlet and fixed these problems, as well as introducing additional JavaFX charts to the application:
I'll be updating the tutorial soon with the new code and fixes provided by Gail and Paul! All the code is already available here:
They'll also be delivering a tutorial on JavaFX and the NetBeans Platform at JavaOne 2012 in October this year:
"TUT4801 - Make Your Clients Richer: JavaFX and the NetBeans Platform"
The NetBeans platform is known for its comprehensive window framework and loosely coupled architecture. JavaFX offers a rich set of visually appealing GUI components. This tutorial shows you how to use both to enhance the user experience in desktop client applications. In the tutorial, you will learn how to integrate JavaFX into a NetBeans application. You will start with a basic application that generates data. You will then create a NetBeans module that includes a dynamic JavaFX chart component. This chart component leverages JavaFX bindings to visually animate data as the values change. The result includes an application with a sophisticated out-of-the-box GUI coupled with flashy, JavaFX-powered animations.
That's a two hour topic, i.e., a tutorial, they will do on this subject. Looking forward to it!
