Listing 1-1 shows the class CustomLookAndFeelUI that extends FXDNode . When this node is
instantiated, the variable okButton points to the node that represents the layer, which was named
jfx:okButton . Once this stub class is created and used in the application, the designer can feel free to
update the look of the dialog panel and submit her changes without developer intervention. If the
designer changes the name of the okButton, a warning will be generated when this class is instantiated.
This warning creates a contract between the designer and developer that will help catch errors between
the two workflows.
When working with Eclipse or another IDE that does not yet support the creation of these stub files,
you can create them by hand or just use NetBeans to create them and copy them into your IDE of choice.
