JavaFX Products and
Despite its infancy, JavaFX has commanded a tremendous following within a short period
of time. Currently, there are a combination of commercial and open-source products and
frameworks available for or in support of JavaFX:
F WidgetFX —this is a platform on which you can run desktop widgets built entirely in
JavaFX. It is inherently cross-platform and will run on operating systems that support
JavaFX. Other features of WidgetFX include a growing number of available widgets,
a simple one-click installation, open source code, a robust security model based on
Java's own setup, and a small footprint. See http://widgetfx.org/ to find out
how to create widgets.
F On2 JavaFX Video Encoder —JavaFX uses On2's technologies for its cross-platform
and portable video codec called FXM. On2 provides two tools, Flix Pro and Flix
Standard, to allow content creators to encode videos directly into the FXM format.
See https://flix.on2.com/ for details about On2's Flix product line.
F Exadel JavaFX products —Exadel, a company well-known for its enterprise view
technologies, got in the JavaFX game early with two offerings for developers. Exadel
offers JavaFX-Studio as an alternative IDE for JavaFX development. JavaFX Studio is
an Eclipse plug-in with features such as new project/class setup wizards, code editor
with syntax completion/highlight, and deployment wizards. The other offering from
Exadel is called Flamingo. It is a framework that provides client-side components
for data connectivity so that JavaFX can be implemented as a view technology for
server-side Spring, Seam, or Java EE components. Go to http://www.exadel.
