Manipal University student bags first prize in Code JavaFX coding contest!!! :P

I had never imagined in my dreams that hard work brings fruits so quickly. I am saying it because I believe today my efforts have become successful.

I feel extremely proud in telling the world that a student named Chinmay Garde, third year, CSE department from our college Manipal Institute of Technology has won the first prize in the Code JavaFX contest. His application called FxTweet has been highly appreciated by all in the JavaFx team too as the evaluators sent him a congratulatory note.

All this is the result of a two day JavaFX workshop and hands on session we conducted here on campus with two SUN engineers Raghu and Subrata who tirelessly taught us about JavaFX in great detail. It was attended by about 200 students from all four years of Btech, MCA and Masters students too.

We installed NetBeans 6.5 with JavaFX SDK in each and every one's laptops and then we did a day long hands on session. After that we also had a contest where students had to develop an application using JavaFX in an hour's time and the best three applications would win prizes like Laptop bag, pen drive and a cool JavaFX  T shirt. We got some very good applications and the competition was very close. A guy Ankur won the first prize for his game.

We also conducted a quiz and lucky draw where we gave out t shirts, key chains, book marks, pens etc as prizes.

I am thankful to Raghu, Subrata for their time and effort, Ganesh and Abhishek for their support and congratulations to Chinmay for his grand victory. 

Way to go!!! :P

I can see MIT coming up prominently on the global map of Open Source!!

JavaFX version 1.0 Release!!!!


JavaFx 1.0 was launched yesterday with a big bang. This is one of the most revolutionary technologies developed by Sun Microsystems and is an extremely powerful tool for developing rich client applications and by rich I mean really super rich!! :D You have to see it to believe it!!....

JavaFX combines the best capabilities of the Java platform with comprehensive, immersive media functionality into an intuitive and comprehensive, one-stop development environment.

So here are some pointers about what JavaFx is really about:

  • Provides a unified development and deployment model for building rich client applications
  • Enables you to easily integrate audio and video, graphics, rich text, and Web services
  • Allows creative developers to program in a visual context
  • Provides tools to build and deliver rich Internet applications for desktop, mobile, TV, and other consumer platforms
  • Enables unprecedented collaboration between designers and developers
  • Allows designers and Java developers to easily leverage the best of today's advanced enterprise software and rich Internet applications.
  • JavaFX Script, a high-performance declarative scripting language, enables you to quickly and easily develop rich Internet applications and next-generation services for desktops, browsers, mobile devices, set-top boxes, and, over time, other consumer platforms.
  • Applications can combine audio/video and 2D graphics with 3D perspective transform (true 3D graphics coming soon) and rich text, with compelling visual effects and transformations.
