By the way, the direct link to the JFXtras SVN repo is:

You're right, I was using a version of the Shelf class that I built from the JFXtras open source repository, rather than the JFXtras 0.5 release. The JFXtras project is located at http://jfxtras.org

Thomas, see

It includes all you need for enterprise applications (grid, tree, JDBC, XML, JSON, Google map).


Dear Jim,

I tried to get it running, but actual JFXtras-0.5.jar has Shelf class that is missing many of the members you are using. I guess you are using a newer version of JFXtras. I tried to find newer release at jfxtras.org, but couldn't. Would pls give me a hint, where to find it?

In general: I am a developer with 20 yrs of experience and I am rather disappointed about the information about JavaFX. It's really cool, but most samples are based on V1.0 or V1.1 and do not compile with JavaFX 1.2. SUN's language reference is full of TODOs. For a professional developer this is a mess. I really like your work and I own your book. But, if you meet some of the SUN guys, pls tell them that there is much more work to be done to get to enterprise level (and SUN stated it will offer enterprise level).

Again, I really like YOUR work!

Best regards,
