“Can JavaFX do this?”

Couple of weeks back I had a session and booth at Sun Tech Days, Hyderabad. Many asked if JavaFX can really do all what Flex does? We demonstrated many samples that we had. But still wanted to show some sample which matches real website. So here is a sample which mimics Adobe – Discover your Shortcut to Brilliant” website.

    That looks nice, I only miss the sound. Sound can be important to some groups when demonstrating functionality.

    Thanks Thommy. 100% agree. Sound is important. I will try to find some sample audio which doesn’t have any copyright issues.

  4. Rakesh Menon says:

    Thanks Nicolas. Yes! I’ll post one JavaFX sample every week.

    Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X platforms only) that is your problem, very odd.

    Now that’s more like it. I think we’re all past the simple examples, this post raises the bar a little. It would be nice to see something that flex can’t do 😀

    @johnny-flex JavaFX team is working on providing support to other platforms.

    @javanut Thanks! Hmm… 🙂

    Very nice. It would be even nicer to fade out the grid after all the tiles have completed showing up.

  13. Rakesh Menon says:

    @Tobias Thanks! Yes, there are lots of room for improvement.
