JavaOne demo for JavaFX and SunSpot

Posted by thetan on August 11, 2009 at 8:02 AM PDT

There is a pair of SunSpots placed on the yellow gloves Denis wearing. They track location and transfer some events to the FX application (actually, a bunch of different JavaFX applications shown on the screen). Technically speaking, no changes are required for FX side.
Denis, thank you for the demonstration! You look like Luke Skywalker there :)

Roman and Mario made a tremendous work on cacio bits in last few days. I personally love that final image with Duke riding the horse. :)


Caciocavallo taste for TCK

And there are some results. :)

When there were no other tasks I've gathered a requests statistics on the GridBagLayout class changes. I considered both defects and RFEs.
By the way, we seem have to refuse that division and treat each defect now as RFE.

I was surprised by the fact that there are only 14 CRs inquire one or another change in the GridBagLayout class behavior.

Usually developer starts to work on some issues from understanding the problem. A description represents a problem in a general. Unfortunately the actual difficulties of any particular user are hidden behind the common phrases.
