In this last part, we will define styles for our frame. These styles will be shared by our border and our title pane to give to our frame decoration a look similar to the nimbus internal frame.
What if Swing deprecated tomorrow? How much butt hurt would there be and would everyone would immediately begin porting their applications to the JavaFX?
In the twilight of 2013 does JavaFX really replace Swing or are there use cases that dictate supporting Swing?
Does it even matter when more and more younger developers are forsaking Java altogether in favor of the 'Hipster Browser Flavor of the Week Framework.js'?
When At-a-Glance" (AoG) displays associated with complex data visualization aren't enough and you need something more interactive a combination of the NetBeans Platform and JavaFX again comes to the rescue. This post is Part 2 in the ongoing mini-series discussing this pattern from the perspective of a NASA MMS Ground System software operationally deployed at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
How to build a JavaFX visualization of data that must loaded dynamically while mitigating the hit to user experience. This tutorial will show you how to visually acknowledge the user with some sort of animation to let him know... "Hey I'm still here don't worry!" The following pattern is how you can easily accomplish this either from a straight Swing interop or embedded from a NetBeans Platform application.
Combining JavaFX 2.x and the NetBeans Platform has proven complementary in making some very useful "At-a-Glance" displays associated with NASA Ground System daily data product generation. The combination has proved to be a very effective pattern to extend and this post along with some following posts will explore this. Explanation, Justification and some cool screenshots will be provided.
Visual Library is a library in NetBeans, which you can use in standalone Java apps, for doing beautiful, complex, animated layouts. JUNG is a library for exploring graphs of connected data. What if we put those two things together? That's what I did. The result is on GitHub.
Here is the first step of adding window decorations support to the Nimbus Look and Feel. In the first step we will simply make something functional (drag-able, movable, resizable, close-able, expendable).
In this blog post you will learn to prototype your applications using UML before typing a line of code. This is useful because you can generate a code template from these diagrams.
Introduction to object-oriented programming concepts: class, objects, polymorphism, abstraction, inheritance.
In this article you will learn how compile Java sources on runtime using the JSR 199 API.
Just recently I was engaged to assist with an application that wasn’t behaving. The application, running in a 1.7.0_45 JVM, relied heavily on a 3rd party SAAS framework. That vendor provided my client with a list of 26 different JVM flags that should be set. When faced with this long list of flags I couldn’t resist asking why all the flags and why these flags. After all there are more than 700 product flags defined in the JVM and to be honest, I’ve only a vague idea of the effect may have on a runtime.
A method to avoid database extension
This article is about three methods of data processing.
Tired of JavaFX Scene Builder being run in a separate process? Fed up with no real integration between your favorite IDE and JavaFX Scene Builder? There may be a solution heading towards you. Follow this small series of blog entries to join me on my journey towards an embedded JavaFX Scene Builder in NetBeans.
Finally, with the new developer preview builds of JavaFX Scene Builder 2.0 a new...

For the last few years I've been lucky enough to be a lead developer for some NASA Ground System software that has been deployed directly into the Mission Operations Control room. (Hence the righteous reference in the title of this blog)
Here at this blog I will be sharing the tips, tricks and lessons learned in deploying Java technology to space based mission critical operations and analysis. I feel there is a niche here to speak towards in the vast ocean of blogs that everyone is already tired of. I will be sharing some code snippets that are non-proprietary, cool captured screenshots and occasionally images taken from actual operational software.
There are a great many sessions at JavaOne 2013 that feature JavaFX. But only one of them dared people to attend the session. That session would be "No Guts, No Glory! A Deep Dive into the Internals of JavaFX [BOF5802]", presented by Steve Northover, Kevin Rushforth, and Richard Bair (all of Oracle). At first, I was wondering if the challenge would mean I'd arrive at the session, only to find...
