New articles and improvements have been added to the documentation for JavaFX 2.0.3 update.
Concurrency in JavaFX describes the capabilities provided by the javafx.concurrent package to create multithreaded applications. You learn how to keep your JavaFX application user interface responsive by delegating time-consuming task execution to background threads.
JavaFX Interoperability with SWT describes using JavaFX to add visual appeal to your SWT application. The code example shows how easy it is to add a JavaFX scene graph to an SWT application anywhere you can use an SWT canvas, and how an SWT control and JavaFX control can interoperate.
Refer to the Tree View chapter of the JavaFX UI Controls tutorial to learn how to build hierarchical structures in your user interfaces and apply the cell factory mechanism. Try the TreeViewSample application to create a simple HR tool and explore basic features of the TreeView and TreeItem classes in action.
Handling JavaFX Events has a new chapter that provides an overview of the event processing system and describes the event system classes and the event delivery process. Also added are sample applications that show how event filters and event handlers can be used.
A new introduction in Getting Started with FXML provides a basic description of FXML and the benefits of using it to create user interfaces.
As of this release, the PDF downloads that are linked from each JavaFX article have a new look, more like a book. They contain the same content as the HTML pages but pack more information into a page than the previous PDFs, using less paper if you are printing.
