New Book: "JavaFX Rich Client Programming on the NetBeans Platform"

Now built into Java and closely integrated with the NetBeans Platform, JavaFX 8 is today's state-of-the-art Java-based toolkit for creating advanced user interfaces, manipulating media, generating graphical effects and animations, and much more. This guide covers everything you need to know to create industrial-strength business applications with JavaFX 8 and NetBeans -- including how JavaFX impacts user experience design, graphical design, and development processes.

Focusing on JavaFX as the front end for tomorrow's most powerful rich client applications, this is the first book to cover the version of JavaFX 8 incorporated into the Java APIs with the official release of Java SE8, instead of obsolete preview versions.

Gail and Paul Andersen fully explain both JavaFX 8 and its relationships with the NetBeans Platform architecture, and systematically show Java developers how to use them effectively together. To support sophisticated real-world business development, they also thoroughly address JavaFX 8 interactions with backend databases, JavaEE, RESTful web services, and the Jersey client.

Release date is September 2014. More info here!

Hello Geertjan,

this is a good announcement. Today I am looking for the JavaFX sample "DataApp", which is missing from the JDK 8 Demos and Samples, although the JavaFX 8 demos and samples are included in it.
To my knowledge, it is the only no-nonsense sample which could convince many developers to apply JavaFX for real projects. Was it abandoned because of the trouble in the past with the NB project settings?

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
