Marks SVJUGFX April 14, 2010 This presentation is a hands-on introduction to JavaFX, focusing primarily on using the JavaFX Script language to drive interactive graphics using the JavaFX scene graph. I'll start with a "Hello, world" program and build it up piece by piece until we have a complete application. At each step of the way, we'll see the code in NetBeans and run it so you can see the results immediately. We'll be building a simple "flood fill" game: The goal is to fill the board with cells of a single color in the minimum number of moves. (See here for some analysis about solving this simple game.
This program in this talk is based on JavaFX 1.2.x and NetBeans 6.8. 0. We'll start off with the obligatory Hello, World program: println("Hello, JavaFX! ") This is just a single line script that prints a string to the standard output. 1. Printing text to an output file isn't very interesting.

Java and JavaFX GUI Application Learning Trail - NetBeans Tutori. What are Java GUI applications?
A Java GUI application uses the standard Java components GUI component set, Swing, and is deployed to the desktop. The Swing GUI Builder in NetBeans IDE simplifies the GUI development process and enables you to visually create Java GUI applications using pre-unstalled Swing and AWT components. JavaFX is a rich set of graphics and media packages that enables developers to design, create, test, debug, and deploy rich client applications (RIAs) that behave consistently across multiple platforms.

Share Object Orientation Classes are an integral part of Object Orientation, encapsulating state and behavior for each component in a larger system, thereby allowing us to express our software in terms of the structures and relationships which link its autonomous component parts.
Object Orientation has become an incredibly popular way of constructing software in recent years: both Java, and its underlying Java Virtual Machine environment, are heavily object centric. It should come as no surprise, then, that JavaFX Script is also Object Orientated! JFX’s support for OO is pretty rich. In the coming sub-sections we’ll explore the ins and outs of classes, and how to define, create, inherit, control and manipulate them so we can employ OO thinking to write robust, maintainable and reusable code. Object Orientated what..? How crucial is understanding objects to learning JFX? Classes and source files However, this isn’t always the case with JavaFX Script.
