New JavaFX section on IDRsolutions website

30 sec read

JavaFX 2.0 is an exciting new technology from Oracle to make it easy to build slick, modern looking interfaces with lots of eye candy. It co-exists with your existing Swing or SWT code. We have been looking at JavaFX as a replacement for Graphics3D and to enhance our PDF viewer and have several Open Source projects which make use of JavaFX. We have also written a PDF to JavaFX converter.

So we have created a new JavaFX section to bring this all together along with a JavaFX FAQ, links to all our JavaFX blog articles and general links. There will be lots more content appearing there in the near future.

We hope you are as excited about JavaFX as we are!

And we hope to see you at our JavaOne 2012 talk
