JavaFX Widgets and Series
By dannycoward on Jan 07, 2009
A great one-month birthday gift for JavaFX yesterday was the release of the widget-framework-built-in-JavaFX called WidgetFX 1.0 !
And two in-depth blog series on JavaFX have kicked off that you may like: Filter effects framework engineer Chris Campbell, kicks off his series describing on how developers can use the javafx.scene.effects package to create visual effects on nodes in a scenegraph (like this), and follows up in the second describing how the JavaFX implementation takes a hybrid approach to make the effects look good at any resolution.
And Alex Ruiz on using the FEST framework to test JavaFX apps. So far, looking at using Maxim's SwingExplorer to understand the GUI of a JavaFX application and thoughts on how to extend FEST for JavaFX, and second in the series how to use the FEST launcher to get the JavaFX app running in the test environment.
