Matthew,

Creating a set of tutorials for creating JavaFX Script Applets would be great for the community. As a heads up, the compiler team is very close to having JavaFX Applets working. You may recall that I did a Happy New Year post that has an applet, but it doesn't use the classes that the compiler team created since then. I'm told it won't be long.

By the way, I'm planning on teaching the JavaFX Script Boot Camp that I mentioned at the end of this post in other locations as well. I'd be happy to consider doing one in Australia if there is enough interest.

Thanks,
Jim Weaver

Hi Jim,

Just an idea I wanted to put out there.

If Sun would like to bring Applets back to life they should sponsor some literature, web and print, so that either some of us can reacquaint ourselves with them or new-comers can experience them. I hadn't thought about Applets in about eight years.

If I get the time, outside of my day job, I might possibly put together a short series of tutorials. Maybe five :

1. Hello World Applet
2. Basic 2D Drawing tool Applet
3. CRUD Applet, with Servlet
4. CRUD Applet, with Web Service
5. Map view Applet (JXMapKit / Joshua Marinacci style)

Something like that.

Just an idea. If I don't get there first someone else might. Either way everyone benefits.

Regards,

Matthew

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your response.

I'm quite enthusiastic now for where things are heading with JavaFX. I just installed NetBeans 6.0 and will start some testing. I have a really exciting project prototype I have in mind that I'm keen to start playing with.

Thanks again

Matthew

Matthew,

To give you my perspective on your "will Applets make a comeback and give Flex/Silverlight a run for their money": I fully believe that the answer is "YES!", in the form of JavaFX Script applets (in the browser) and application (outside the browser/jail).

Thanks,
Jim Weaver
