With the release of JavaFX 2, Weiqi, Stephen, Dean and I decided to rewrite our Pro JavaFX book. During the process, Johan Vos joined the fray, and Pro JavaFX 2 is now available as a definitive guide for Java developers. Here's the Table of Contents:
01. Getting a Jump Start in JavaFX
02. Creating a User Interface in JavaFX
03. Properties and Bindings
04. Dynamically Laying Out Nodes in the UI
05. Using the JavaFX UI Controls
06. Collections and Concurrency
07. Creating Charts in JavaFX
08. Using the Media Classes
09. Accessing Web Services
10. JavaFX Languages and Markup
Ap: The Visage Language In-Depth
Carl Dea did an excellent job of keeping the book technically accurate, and Nandini Ramani wrote the foreword. It is our hope that you find Pro JavaFX 2 a very useful resource as you create apps using the JavaFX 2 API.
