I'm new to JavaFX 2.0 (and Java) but have heard IDEs like NetBeans have wizards for bindings, properties, annotation type things? Are there wizards for the new JavaFx 2.0 Beans?

Reading the Apress book 'Pro JavaFx 2.0' says 'JavaFX 2.0 introduces the JavaFX Beans specification that adds properties support to Java objects through the help of the properties classes from the JavaFX 2.0 properties and bindings framework...with two Properties Strategies: Eagerly Instantiated, Lazily Instantiated.'

The recent post below mentions 'New --> Web Service Client' and if something like that did some setup for my application making a 'RESTful URL call' or 'Binding JSON data' to JavaFx Beans? (

I can tell that many beans related examples (and client/server) are for Swing, AWT type applications and am hesitant to add plug-ins that are not appropriate for JavaFx 2.0.

Clicking on my NetBeans7.3->Tools->Plugins then Available Plugins tab, I can see plugins below, but is anything relivant to JavaFx Beans? Also, I have yet to find any plugin (e.g., RESTful Web Services) listed in Available Plugin out on (
