Reviews Interactive recently spoke with JavaFX developer Fabrizio Giudici, a prominent and highly-respected blogger in the JavaFX community who writes regularly for both Java.net and DZone. Fabrizio said he is particularly interested in using JavaFX on mobile devices, which he stated is a great platform to give applications “all the bells and whistles.”
Fabrizio's current work with JavaFX is primarily focused on the open source blueMarine project, which he started several years ago. The blueMarine project encompasses a series of tools to support photographers such as a windRose, an expandable geotagging tool which he is looking to leverage for taking notes in the field. Using JavaFX, Fabrizio recently developed and is still testing an application called blueBillMobile, which expands on the geotagging capabilities of windRose for birdwatchers. Fabrizio reported that he developed his working prototype of blueBillMobile in only one week, which he says “would have been impossible with Java Micro Edition.”
