Mobile JavaFX Enterprise at JavaOne

I am glad the two session proposals I submitted for JavaOne are both accepted. I will be talking about DataFX and about JavaFX on Android. In this blog post, I try to explain why I focus on exactly these two topics.

It’s time to make a decision

For the Java Enterprise world, 2014 is the year in-between. The Java EE 7 spec has been launched last year, and the Java EE 8 spec won’t be released this year. At Devoxx, we’ll be looking back and forward. For some companies, it is time to decide when and how to migrate to Java EE 7. For the Java Community Process, it is time to decide what should go in Java EE 8.

Location-based software in JavaFX

This is the first part in a series of posts on location-based software using JavaFX. In this entry, we will show how you can easily provide basic map functionality in a JavaFX application, by using a mapserver that renders map tiles. We build a desktop application that allows users to zoom in and out, and to drag the map. Tiles will be loaded when required.

Using Android API's in JavaFX.

In a previous blog entry, I talked about the JavaFX to Android porting project. Now that this seems to be on the rails, it's time for some more integration. In this blog post, I will quickly show how you can use the Android API's in your JavaFX application.

JavaFX and Android

JavaFX allows Java developers to create Java Client applications with compelling user interfaces, meeting todays demand. I think we can consider JavaFX to be stable on the desktop, and that is a very important fact. However, the IT industry in general is shifting from desktop to mobile. Platforms need to have an answer for this. That is why I started a community project for porting JavaFX to the Android platform a couple of months ago.
