ControlsFX. ControlsFX is an open source project for JavaFX that aims to provide really high quality UI controls and other tools to complement the core JavaFX distribution.


It has been developed for JavaFX 8.0 and beyond, and has a guiding principle of only accepting new controls / features when all existing code is at an acceptably high level, including thankless jobs like having high quality javadoc documentation. This ensure a high quality release is available at all times, with all experimental work being done in branches of the main code base. Features ControlsFX includes so many features that we’re now listing them on a separate page! Go to the ControlsFX features page to see some of what is included in ControlsFX.

CaptainCasa - Rich Internet Application Framework for demanding Applications. The GroovyFX Guide. In JavaFX, you display graphics and controls on the screen by constructing a scene graph that consists of various types of nodes - perhaps a circle or a button control.

The GroovyFX Guide

The scene graph is put into a Scene, which defines the area in which your scene graph will be displayed. The Scene can then be shown on a Stage. You can think of a Stage as the application container. If your applicaiton is running on the user’s desktop, the Stage corresponds to a desktop window that typically has a title bar and resizing controls. If your application is embedded into a browser, then the Stage corresponds to the applet’s display area.

This arrangement of Stage → Scene → Scene Graph is a hierarchy of nodes that can be described nicely using a declarative format: Except for one other minor detail which we’ll cover in the next section, this is a complete GroovyFX program that, when run, will produce the output below.

Grails Best Practices

This article is a basic list of best practices that our Grails projects follow, gathered from mailing lists, Stack Overflow, blogs, podcasts and internal discussions at IntelliGrape. They are categorized under controller, service, domain, views, taglibs, testing and general. The advice here is specifically for Grails 2.0, although much of it is generally applicable. Controller Don’t allow the controller to take over another role.
