For the last few years, many of the JavaFX related blog posts found here have made reference to all or parts of a Scoreboard application written in JavaFX. For example, the entry prior to this contains a video demonstrating how this Scoreboard application can be run on an embedded device such as a Raspberry Pi and displayed on an ordinary flat screen TV.
Alongside those posts, some have asked for access to the source code to this application. I've always felt uncomfortable releasing the code, not under the delusion that it has any commercial value, but rather because, let us say, it was not developed with the strictest software engineering standards in mind. Having gotten over those insecurities (not really), I've decided to place it in a java.net project called javafx-scoreboard.
If you are interested in gaining access to this code you'll need to do the following:
- Register on http://home.java.net/projects to get a java.net account. It's free and painless. If you already have an account, terrific! You can skip this step.
- Send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org asking to be added to the javafx-scoreboard project. Include your java.net username in the email.
- Once you're added to the project, you'll have download access to the contents of the project.
For grins, here's document that gives an overview of the Scoreboard application.
