Mail Bag

Gábor Gossmann
I think Java FX (in Hungary)don't have a good 250-350 page long free book in the markets. It's harder to begin Java FX or SE/EE for total beginners. Microsoft have(sic) for them own product and FREE!

From the NLJUG meeting:

Is there support for jmf media in JavaFX 2.0?

What is the graphics excelleration based upon?

What is the difference between the AWT and JavaXF threads?

What happens if you have both Swing and JavaFX in an application. Do we have two threads working then?


What's cool

This week DFJUG is celebrating thirteen years of activities.
