I am pleased to announce the 0.6 release of the open-source JFXtras project, the largest 3rd party library of JavaFX add-ons. This release is a very large undertaking that represents the work of several dozen contributors over the past 6 months.
JFXtras 0.6 will work with any JavaFX release in the 1.2 family. We recommend using the very latest release (currently JavaFX 1.2.3), which can be downloaded from JavaFX.com.
Starting immediately, we will be focusing on developing a JavaFX 1.3 compatible JFXtras release. Our plan is to release a 1.3 compatible version of JFXtras within 1 week of the official release announcement from Oracle. To hear about future JFXtras release announcements, make sure to follow my blog.
To make it easier to see some of the JFXtras capabilities in action, I have included Web Start demos from our component test library. It may take a minute or two to load the first demo, but after that the rest should launch instantaneously.
The JFXtras controls include a Table, Tree, Shelf, Calendar, PasswordBox, Picker, Spinner, MultiLineTextBox, ScoreBoard, and Menu. Many of these controls can be driven off a dynamic data provider that gives back incremental results from an asynchronous operation, such as a Web Service call.
