JavaFX Programming, Part I

Video Description

Overview

Oracle is encouraging Java developers to migrate from Swing to JavaFX for GUI and rich client development. This video helps developers learn JavaFX and how to apply JavaFX effectively in Java applications.

Description

JavaFX Programming, Part I LiveLessons is organized into lessons that teach major JavaFX features with separate sublessons that demonstrate how to apply each feature. You’ll learn how to draw JavaFX shapes and apply effects to create a richer user experience on the desktop. You’ll learn how to use layout managers with GUI controls and menus. You’ll learn how to use JavaFX properties and binding expressions to simplify event handling and reduce Java code. You’ll also learn how to create animations with JavaFX in this video.

All lessons walk viewers through JavaFX code examples to reinforce the important concepts. The viewer also learns how to use the new JavaFX 8 features on the Java SE 8 platform and above.
