JavaFX 1.2 brings more UI controls
June 2, 2009
JavaFX 1.2 arrived silently last night in order to coincide with the opening of JavaOne 2009. I’m happy to see many more UI controls included in this latest release of JavaFX, most notably ScrollBar, which is so painful to re-implement yourself.
I wasn’t expecting the controls to have a platform neutral look, though I think this was a good idea (similar to how Adobe Flex controls have an platform agnostic look).
Check out the full JavaFX 1.2 API — note how much fuller it is than in JavaFX 1.1.
I’m interested in hearing you’re thoughts on JavaFX 1.2, specifically about the new UI controls.
