Participate to JRebirth Roadmap

As you probably noticed, a new poll is accessible on the right bar of the website related on JRebirth future road map.
Thank you to those who have already given their opinions (it’s so valuable for us).

I will now describe each feature with a little more details than few words written into the poll. All of them are ambitious but without challenge there isn’t any fun !
Obviously all minor changes will be still integrated, so don’t hesitate sending us some feedbacks, we are hearing you and want to build the framework you have ever craved.

JRebirth running on Equinox

Today I want to share with you the newer JRebirth goal: Application Modularization

Please note that a new poll is published on the right bar related to this subject.

This teaser show Mastering Tables application (built with JRebirth Application Framework) run as an OSGI bundle into Equinox runtime (Eclipse’s OSGI framework) and for sure with Java 8 runtime.

Further developments will be made to improve integration (runtime & build) and to fix some small issues (like log localization failure).

No extra OSGI bundles have been used (only equinox and gogo console ones).

Let me know if you have any remark

Tip #1: FXML Model Simplification

Today I open a new category of posts, I will try to publish periodically some tips about JRebirth Application Framework.

I begin with a FXML model simplification inspired by @Jerady adm4ee application, I discussed with him about reasons that drive him to use his own small application framework to develop his tool (more info about his tool on bitbucket).

He replies to me that he wants to try coding a whole application without using other external libraries to reduce the number of external dependencies (but the main advantage to use JRebirth is to solve all common threading issues… , by the way I suspect his application to freeze during long task performed into JavaFX Application Thread -[JAT])

JavaFX Workshop at EclipseCON France 2013

On Friday the 15th of June I have animated a JavaFX workshop at EclipseCON France 2013 (Toulouse,  Centre de Congrès Pierre Baudis).

The workshop lasted 1h45 and has been recorded but video is probably lost in wonkyland.
The primary goal was to do repair seven applications (Mastering Tables) in which I remove some code to explain some noticeable JavaFX features (Java Builders, Stage  Scene and Node basis, Properties and Binding, CSS, Event Handling, FX effects, Animation)
