JavaFX, Scene Builder, Hibernate and Databases

UniForum Linux Meetup Group is proud to have Lou Dasaro present JavaFX, Scene Builder, Hibernate and Databases

Abstract: JavaFX is the next step in the evolution of Java as a rich client platform, shortening development time and easing deployment of data-driven business and enterprise client applications. JavaFX provides a rich set of UI controls, graphics and media API with high-performance hardware-accelerated graphics and media engines to simplify development of immersive visual applications.

In this session, Lou Dasaro will introduce JavaFX software development using JavaFX Scene Builder 1.1 for Linux, the visual development tool for the JavaFX platform that generates FXML. Dasaro will walk through the integrated workflow between Scene Builder and the IDE, examine the injection of variables associated with the UI controls, and tie them to a relational database (containing media elements) using Hibernate.

Bio: Lou Dasaro is a independent software developer, principal at Postefx, and organizer of the Chicago JavaFX User Group on  He has been working with the Early Access / Developer Previews of Netbeans 7.3 and JavaFX Scene Builder for Linux since they first became available (last year). Dasaro has worked in the computer industry for over twenty years, and has consulted to AT&T (most of the baby Bells), CME/CBOT, CIT, IBM, GTE, Motorola, and others. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater.

    Such nice tools. Good to see there's more for Java than Eclipse and Swing. Persuasive presentation.

    Good real world overview of the development environment for creating web based applications that can run across varied devices and platforms. Coding and drag to install examples provided a more complete picture of what it was all about. Kept the interest of all who attended.
