JavaFX Tip 23: Save Memory! Shadow Fields for Properties

javafx-logo

Properties and property bindings introduced in Java 8 are extremely useful programming concepts. They are especially useful when you are developing user interfaces. In fact they are so useful that developers have fallen victim to the idea that everything should be a property instead of a primitive. Unfortunately they easily forget that properties such as SimpleLongProperty are much bigger objects than standard types such ...

JavaFX is the new standard library for building graphical applications in Java, but many programmers out there is still stuck with Swing or even (tremble) AWT. A lot has happened in the 20 years java has been around. When I began looking into the JavaFX libraries two years ago for the Speedment UI I found many things fascinating! Here are ...

javafx-logo

The TableView (and TreeTableView) of JavaFX has won the price for being the control that was mentioned the most in my recent “JavaFX Missing Features” survey and also in many follow-up discussions (including and especially the guys in our Zurich JavaFX Meetup group).

JavaFX is Here to Stay!

javafx-logo

The last week has seen some discussion on the web related to the future of JavaFX. Many people got the impression that JavaFX will be put on ice by Oracle.
