Links and Information
Some interesting links:
- General presentation at sun.com
- JavaFX on java.sun.com
- The JavaFX Programming Language offers an informal but quite detailed look at the language and its features.
- The Welcome to JavaFX message by Chris Oliver provides a history of the language and some design decisions. Interesting quote:
- From my experience with C++ and Java, having method bodies in the class declaration clutters it with a mass of implementation details which is detrimental to getting an overview of the actual relationships and operations embodied by the class. It was for this reason that I decided to define the bodies of class operations and functions outside the class declaration.
- Chris Oliver's weblog, especially the F3 category also has some history and cool examples.
