JavaFX has certainly come a long way in the past 18 months or so.

The Problem In one of our desktop applications we're emphasizing full-screen mode more than ever before. Among other things, this means we need to display some modal dialogs in full-screen mode. On Windows this appears to work fine, but on Mac the dialog appears to be buried. Here is a test application demonstrating the problem: import java.awt.DisplayMode;import java.awt.GraphicsDevice;import...

Mac Java

I recently installed Java 7 on my Mac OS X system. Although the installation went smoothly, I did run into one problem that might not be a big issue for you.

As many of you may know, user interface design is a passion of mine. I want software that both looks pretty and acts well. I've had lots of ideas on the topic, often bleeding over into art and traditional design, in addition to usability. After thinking about it for a couple of years I've finally decided to create a blog dedicated to the topic: At Josh On Design I'll be...

Intro I'm writing the web services material for Globalcode's brand new course on Java Enterprise development, so I decided to give NetBeans 5.5 Preview/Glassfish a try (after all, WS with annotations is one of the ease-of-development promisses of Java EE 5). Currently, I have 2 systems: a Pentium III Linux desktop and a G4 Powerbook; I'm trying to use the Powerbook as primary development machine...
