JavaFX is an environment for building rich client applications. Using a scenegraph at its core and providing many advanced features, e.g. effects, animations, media-support, it greatly simplifies the task of implementing expressive user interfaces with engaging user experience. The API is entirely provided as a Java API making it also available for other programming languages that run on top of the JVM.
In this talk we will take a close-up look at a typical distributed application. Focus will be the rich client implemented with JavaFX, which is connected to a JavaEE 6 server. All of the advanced features, that are aimed at enterprise application development, will be covered, e.g. FXML, CSS styling, layouts, UI controls, and data binding.
After this talk you will have a clear understanding of the possibilities JavaFX 2.0 provides, which will enable you to make sound decisions how it may help you in your future projects. You will also have a good impression of what developing with JavaFX 2.0 feels like.
