January 2010 - Practical JavaFX

For our first meeting for 2009, we will start the year with a practical look into JavaFX, Sun/Oracle's rich client platform.  While the platform is still in its infancy, it is robust and stable enough for production-ready applications.  In this presentation, we will explore how to quickly get started and provide a practical overview of the key features of the platform for building rich client applications.  The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 2010.

The JavaFX platform is Sun's answer to Adobe Flex/Air and Microsoft Silverlight rich client platforms.  JavaFX is comprised of a set of build/deploy tools, the JavaFX Script language, and a unified multi-device runtime.  With JavaFX, you write your code once and the build tools figures out how to target either mobile/entertainment devices, desktop, or a web browsers.  The JavaFX Script language is a domain-specific language designed to create interactive graphical applications running on the Java VM.  While the platform is in its infancy, the current version provides a robust and and production-ready environment on which you can build highly interactive rich desktop clients with compelling user experiences. This presentation is a compressed view of the major features of the JavaFX platform that you will find useful to get started.
