JavaFX: Exploding, books


As the development team enters the home straight for the JavaFX 1.0 release, and people weigh in on what other languages to ways to use on Java Runtime for RIA development, here's a couple interesting new items to see.

First, Silveira has been busily using JavaFX to move exploding bombs in a simple game he built with not much more than NetBeans, four images, the JavaFX animation apis and the data binding feature in JavaFX Script.

And in this article introduces a hands-on tutorial about sequences in JavaFX Script from a new book on JavaFX to add to your copy of the one by Jim Weaver.

Hi Danny,

I don't know if you have noticed, but there seems to be a significant uptick in negative publicity on the web around JavaFX under the cover of "Swing being canceled" related topics. As an independent developer who would like to see JavaFX (and swing) succeed, I am trying to do my best to set the record straight. But as you can tell that's really hard to do when the technology you're defending (JavaFX 1.0) is still unavailable(forget about the preview), and rather obscure(no roadmap, no specs, no literature, demos, etc.). To make a long story short, it is really high time that the 1.0 release be delivered already, today rather than tomorrow. Release Candidate is fine. Just so we can stop some from spreading FUD by SHOWING them what JavaFX true potentials are by deeds, rather words.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike: Yes I'll post something about the Swing stories. We're in the testing cycle of the release candidate for JavaFX now...

yes I think convincing Swing developers should be easier than WEB people who do not yet program java clients.
At least for first release.

By dividing the living rooms into equal squares, it turns out that for most games, many of the squares contain unused toys that can be safely put away.http://www.watchgy.com/
