Back To Work

Hey ! That’s a long time without any activity on JRebirth, really too long.

During this time the JRebirth 8.6.0 version was released to fix some issues awaiting a release to handle them, our CI server is definitely dead and I don’t want to waste my time to rebirth it 😉 so I will continue in degraded mode (with old school way : just maven command line).

I have also build a personal application dealing with Music content but I can’t publish it for free. It gave me the opportunity to improve some core features of JRebirth.

In my day to day work I will probably be forced to migrate to the Dark side and start to work with µ$0ft technologies so to keep my mind safe I will work again with JavaFX each evening.

The next step is to improve greatly the code generation for beans and maybe other classes to speed up developments.

Some core improvements will also concern automatic chain actions with remote computation or access.

Migration to java 9/10/11 is also an option, I will probably create a dedicated branch for this purpose.

Let me know if you wish a custom feature, it’s time to move forward !
It’s quite easy to find me on Twitter or LinkedIn and I receive all emails sent to jrebirth.org

 

 

 

 

 

Model or not Model

Last day I’ve seen a really disappointing blog entry about JRebirth pattern:

http://tiemensfamily.com/TimOnCS/2018/02/09/jrebirth-quick-evaluation/

Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to contact the author to give my point of view, but what’s the good? Not enought time to explain how to write Desktop application to a guy still playing with J2EE in 2018. Damned!

So I decided to write a blog entry in case of somebody else read it in order to explain why he is wrong when he claims that. Continue reading

How to Use ‘CardLayout’ like Panel with JRebirth StackModel

JRebirth Application Framework provides a custom ‘CardLayout’ as a JRebirth component by using its dedicated pattern wB-CSMvc.

The StackModel class will do the job (provided by org.jrebirth.af:component artifact), you can find 2 usages here and here.

Each ‘card’ model can be called using a enum|modelKey identifier, and each stack has an unique name.

The first sample is used for the JRebirth Demo Application, it’s a pretty simple application that will allow to display other JRebirth showcase applications dynamically loaded as JRebirth module (from a separate and independent jar).

JavaFX Unleashed with JRebirth at SoftShake2015

On Friday the 23th of October I have talked about JRebirth Application Framework during Soft-Shake 2015 conference (Geneva, Hepia).

This was the first time I talked only about JRebirth, pretty hard task to explain the JRebirth abstraction and its benefits.

Once again I shipped all family with me to discover Switzerland !! We have visited an interesting museum, the cathedral and the United Nations palais.
