The biggest announcement - and the biggest surprise for many - of JavaOne 2010 was certainly Oracle's new plans for JavaFX 2.0... or, should we say, Swing 2.0?

Mark Reinhold announced today that the JDK 7 / JavaSE 7 project has slipped once again: mid-2011 without Jigsaws and Lambdas, late 2012...

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

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.

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...

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...

My previous blog, presenting the Life program, was quite long, still not really complete. I've continued the...

Performance: JavaFX Balls

As soon as I've got JavaFX 1.3 and NetBeans 6.9-beta, first thing I did was obviously running benchmarks, and the new update delivers on its promise. Let's first...

In my last attempt to stress the JavaFX platform, I ported the Strange Attractor demo/benchmark.

Sun just released the first maintenance update for JavaFX 1.2. This release brings mostly a batch of important javafxc fixes, that I dissect in this blog...

In the last updates, I did a quick port to JavaFX 1.2 and evaluated its performance again (and...

Property binding is a great feature of JavaFX Script, but it's not without its issues, limitations or risks as you can see in...

Fabrizio says: "You'd have problems in forcing it to a broader scope than the one it has been designed for." (i.e., GUIs) This may be true, but only because JavaFX Script is...

Check first part here. By just adding -server, I got the following results (standard runs, without...

Migration

JavaFX 1.2 is not a fully backwards compatible release. There are language and API changes, and the compiled code is not binary compatible even for sources that still compiles...

I previously reported the highlights of b01 and...

First article: Oracle brass coax Sun troops with tough love. Some initial (although vague) commitments to the future of...

Most of Sun stuff will be very useful to Oracle.

Get it here while it's hot; check the Release Notes...

To learn JavaFX, I used my favorite method of playing with other people's code. I picked JavaFX Balls: the JavaFX version of the Bubblemark RIA...
