Gail and Paul Anderson (interviewed a few days ago here) passed on the happy news to me today.
The eBook of JavaFX Rich Client Programming on the NetBeans Platform is available now. The physical tree based book (i.e., in addition to the eBook, there will be a treeBook!) will be available from the end of the month, when it will be released during JavaOne 2014. If you'll be at JavaOne 2014, please come to the book signing at the JavaOne bookstore, Tuesday, September 30, 15:30 PM - 16:00 PM.

The book guides you in a lot of detail, with many samples, to the creation of this application:

Here's the Google link (no formats specified, but devices listed):


Also, on the publisher's site (formats EPUB, MODI, PDF):


And Kindle on Amazon:


Take note that the links above also provide access to quite a lot of free sample materials, e.g., complete and partial chapters, to give you a taste of the book's more than 900 pages providing clear explanations and heaps of code samples in the context of the Family Tree application. 

I had the honor of writing the foreword to the book. Here it is, hope it gives a sense of how awesome and useful this book is!

Congratulations, Gail and Paul, and to Greg Doench from Prentice Hall for having faith in this project!
