About this book

The JavaFX™ technology and platform is essentially Sun's response to Adobe Flash and Microsoft's Silverlight. JavaFX lets developers play with the open-source scripting, desktop, and mobile APIs offered to create dynamic, seamless visual user interfaces (UIs) that are “Flash–like” and beyond…

Learn from bestselling JavaFX author Jim Weaver and expert JavaFX developers Weiqi Gao, Stephen Chin, and Dean Iverson to discover the JavaFX technology and platform that enables developers and designers to create rich Internet applications (RIAs) that can run across diverse devices. Covering the JavaFX Script language, JavaFX Mobile, and development tools, Pro JavaFX™ Platform: Script, Desktop and Mobile RIA with Java™ Technology is the first book that fully provides JavaFX version 1.2 code examples that cover virtually every language and API feature.

This book contains the following:

  • Tutorials that teach JavaFX 1.2 to an application developer or graphics designer who has had no exposure to JavaFX. These tutorials will be exhaustive, covering virtually every facet of JavaFX Script and are fully updated for the JavaFX 1.2 release.
  • Reference materials on JavaFX 1.2 that augment what is available from the JavaFX 1.2 Language Reference and API documentation.
  • How to take JavaFX 1.2 to other platforms besides the desktop, such as mobile.
