JavaFX Balls 3.0

Posted by opinali on November 25, 2011 at 3:30 PM PST

In my last blog I’ve introduced JavaFX 2.0 beta, describing an initial port of JavaFX Balls, also in beta stage at that time. Now I finally finish JavaFX Balls 3.

Interested in JavaFX? The JIRA is your friend

Posted by opinali on June 18, 2011 at 5:16 AM PDT

JavaFX 2.0 is not multiplatform! It can't do subpixel antialiasing!! … these were among the reactions to the first beta releases, that I'm not sure to understand as trolling or simple laziness. These mysteries are usually solved with a simple look at JavaFX's public JIRA issue tracking system.

JavaFX 2.0 Beta: First impressions

Posted by opinali on May 28, 2011 at 3:32 PM PDT

It's been a long time, well long in Internet-years, since my last blog on JavaFX. Now I'm approaching JavaFX 2.0 by porting the JavaFX 1.x programs that I had written and blogged about here. These new ports will allow me to evaluate the evolution of the platform. Has the wait been worth it?

Swing 2.0 is Coming

Posted by opinali on September 23, 2010 at 4:07 AM PDT

JDK 7 delayed again... how bad is that?

Posted by opinali on September 8, 2010 at 1:35 PM PDT

Mark Reinhold announced today that the JDK 7 / JavaSE 7 project has slipped once again: mid-2011 without Jigsaws and Lambdas, late 2012 for JavaSE 8 with those. The delay (or some other bad news like dropping features) was already expected by anyone who tracks the project. But really, how big and bad is this delay?

Dropping Boxes with JavaFX

If you want to work for DropBox, they have an interesting programming test which solution must be submitted together with the CV.

JDK 6u21, JavaFX 1.3.1 and Deployment

Posted by opinali on August 21, 2010 at 3:07 PM PDT

Now that JDK 6u21, JavaFX 1.3.1 and NetBeans 6.9.1 are all finally released, I'm back to checking the latest news and improvements in JavaFX.

Sequences: JavaFX Script's Next Challenge?

Posted by opinali on June 18, 2010 at 2:01 PM PDT

I was doing some JavaFX hacking, and I had to create a sequence initially full of zeros. How can you do that? There's apparently only one way:

var bits = for (i in [1..64]) (0 as Long);

JavaFX Life: From Script to Production

Posted by opinali on June 4, 2010 at 11:20 AM PDT

I've finished the development of my Game of Life, with a couple final fixes and new features... including a solution to the bad performance reported before. Once again the work has uncovered some surprises; read on.

JavaFX: Language investigations

My previous blog, presenting the Life program, was quite long, still not really complete. I've continued the work, but soon found some interesting surprises.
