JavaOne Enterprise JavaFX and JFXtras Presentationssteveonjava | September 26, 2010
Speaking at JavaOne was challenging, but fun this year. With the surprise announcements about JavaFX 2.0 there wasn’t a lot of time to respond, but I managed to refocus all my talks in a very short amount of time.
Pro JavaFX Platform – Building Enterprise Applications with JavaFX
My second talk on Tuesday with Jim Weaver was packed to the brim with folks eager to ask questions about the new direction. We managed to both hit our original presentation topic about enterprise JavaFX development as well as distill the new JavaFX 2.0 market pitch down to something that makes sense to developers. As an added bonus we threw in some examples of what the new JavaFX APIs could look like from Scala code.
JFXtras – JavaFX Controls, Layout, Services, and More
The JFXtras BOF was standing room only with a lot of very prestigious folks from the desktop community filling the chairs. We covered the latest JFXtras 0.7 features and updated everyone on the plan for the future of JFXtras in light of the JavaFX 2.0 announcement. At the end of the presentation we announced a new language project called Visage to fill the gap left by JavaFX Script (more on this in a future post).
Even if you couldn’t attend, hopefully you can get a flavor for how the talks went by skimming the above presentations.
See you at JavaOne next year!
