  • Progressive Enhanced JavaFX 2.0 Custom Components

    5:00 PM Saturday   Room: 4302
    <p>Progressive JavaFX 2.0 Custom Components</p> <p> JavaFX 2.0 is a major shift of emphasis from the JavaFX Script, simply because there is a lot more code to write in Java. How do you as a developer bridge the gap in the knowledge between relatively easy scripting in the old version of JavaFX and the new world? If you are new to JavaFX then how do write robust, developer friendly and reusable components for your enterprise? Progressive JavaFX 2.0 Custom Components teaches you how to write user interface elements practically and pragmatically. The last part is very important, because your JavaFX 2.0 code can be then accessed by developers in alternative JVM languages. Avoid becoming the "new" legacy. Get it right first time. </p> <p> I have been writing custom components for JavaFX 2.0 EA, since I had the privilege or being an early tester. I also wrote many JavaFX Script components that demonstrated to the public. </p> <ul> <li> Developers will want to know what does a component look like? </li> <li> The extra API that they can use? </li> <li> How does the binding and the property module in JavaFX work? </li> <li> How do combine scene graph elements together in component? </li> <li> Short section on the grouping of transformations in the JavaFX scene graph model: How to lay out components? </li> <li> Inside a component developer will learn how to nested components together with out scenegraph elements? </li> <li> How to add write your own JavaFX controls reuseable component with support cascading stylesheets? </li> <li> How can I make my component reusable for Java? </li> <li> How can I ensure that engineers in the other alternative language can use my component? </li> </ul>
