Thank You!

I was inspired by Jim Weaver and Stephen Chin to start blogging. Jonathan Giles provided the launch pad via his "Java desktop links of the week". Philippe Lhoste (PhiLho in Forums, you cannot miss him!) inspired to write more. In less than one year this blog was made popular by all of you and was added to "Oracle's Java Bloggers" list. Feels great to see the name along with some of the greatest people in industry

None of these would have been possible without your encouragement and support. I would like to say to all of you. It was really nice interacting with you. Google-Analytics shows huge number of unique visitors, I hope this was of help to at-least few of them

Unfortunately today is my last day at Sun-Oracle. I had to take this difficult decision to end a decade long association with Sun. I'll continue to blog at WordPress

Hope to have your continued encouragement and support

JavaFX + Yahoo Weather


JavaFX Composer preview is available. You can install this plugin. In NetBeans IDE, goto "Tools" -> "Plugins" -> "Available Plugins". Select "JavaFX Composer" and install the Plugin. Please refer to NetBeans JavaFX Composer and JavaFX Composer Blogs for more information.

Summer has set in like a flick of a switch! So couldn't think of anything else other than Weather. Developed a simple Weather application using Yahoo Weather RSS Feed. It was much easier to visualize and develop using JavaFX Composer, especially for small widget like applications. Soon we will be able to develop complex application using this...

To launch click on above image or

The city is set to Bangalore by default. Double click on the widget to enable the TextBox, in which you can enter your ZipCode or City and press "Enter" key. Ideally I must persist this information using Storage APIs, but I leave that task to you!

For getting the information from Yahoo, we need to first identify the Where On Earth ID - WOEID of the city using its ZipCode or Name. Please refer to Yahoo WOEID documentation for more information. Once we identify the WOEID, we can use forecastrss feed for getting the weather information.

Please try it out and let me know feedback..
