What is JavaFX?
JavaFX provides Java developers with a very nice graphics platform. In October 2011, JavaFX 2.0 was released. It’s intended to be the choice for new graphical user interfaces (GUI) rather than the older Java Swing.
When I started teaching JavaFX in 2012 it was still very early. There were no books covering JavaFX that I found suitable for students new to programming. So I started to write a very detailed tutorial series on JavaFX. The tutorial walks you through designing, programming and deploying an address application.
For a first contact with JavaFX take a look at the JavaFX 2 Dialogs.
- Part I - Scene Builder
- Part II - Model and TableView
- Part III - Interacting with the User
- Part IV - CSS Styling
- Part V - Storing Data as XML
- Part VI - Statistics Chart
- Part VII - Deployment with e(fx)clipse
