Sun JavaFX demo and tutorals

Posted by Charles | July 10, 2007 .

 I start seeing some good JavaFX applications appearing on the web. Here are some of them.

Canno Music Pinboard

This is so far the most impressive JavaFX demo application. Without knowing JavaFX’s existence, you would definitely think it’s a Flash application. I think Sun does made a great contribution to the RIA world. Considering the huge Java developer base and mature application usages, especially the great J2ME installation base on mobile devices, Adobe Flash finds a strong competitor. It’s interesting to read all the major media are focusing on JavaFX vs AJAX. It shows how blindly the big media just follow the scripts from the vendors without knowing what they are talking about. Sun does only strongly refers its JavaFX technology along with AJAX. Wondering why’s that.

JavaFX Clock For Desktop

At surface it’s a useful widget application. It works well and does what a RIA tool should do. However, once you bring up task manager to find how it works under the hood, um… it takes 74MB of memory and the runtime javaw took 40% CPU power for this simple widget. Is it JavaFX or the coding issue?

Anyway, here are the rest of the demos:

  • JavaFX Script JavaFXPad Demo – a lightweight tool that allows you to interactively create graphical elements using the JavaFX Script programming language. It consists of a code editor and a canvas. Whatever you type into the code editor will be displayed in the canvas. It also demonstrates the benefits of JavaFX Script being a statically-typed programming language, providing code-completion and as-you-type validation, in addition to syntax highlighting.
  • JavaFX Script Studiomoto Demo – a partial recreation of Motorola’s StudioMoto web site using the JavaFX Script language. This demo shows how rollover and other animations used in the StudioMoto web site can be easily created using the JavaFX Script language.

           

          As for tutorials, to start with JavaFX, the openJFX could be your best friend.

            One thing I just can’t figure out:

            In the Canno Music Pinboard application, how are they able to embed the flash based youtube player into the JavaFX application outside the browser?

            I assume they don’t have a flash player runtime packaged within the JavaFX runtime…
            You could do a bunch of hacks to invoke the flash player, but none of them are really reliable…

            How do I get these demos to work in Firefox? I have a Java plugin installed, but Firefox doesn’t know what to do with .jnlp files.

            Rob, JavaFX is different from the old Java applet. It can run stand alone outside of a browser. You need install the latest J2SE. It’ll come with the Java Web Start application that will recognize .jnlp file and download needed update or jar and run it. Once it runs, it’ll just like regular java application.

            I would like to know what all plugins or anything else should i have downloaded in my system before clicking (JavaFX Script JavaFXPad Demo in this page ) on to have the code running on my machine.When i click on the link now, it is asking whether i want to open it(asks me to browse the sw which is to be used to open the file),or save to disk

            if i save to disk it is a .jnlp file and i dont know how to proceed to see the working of this application

            Ajith, You just need the latest J2SE installed to your computer. Once done that, the JavaFX extension will be recognized by Java WebStart and the Java Plagin with JavaFX will run it.
