JavaFX on Mobile

Please see here for a photo and directions:

Room 103

Event Description

After a long hiatus, we have a really great talk lined up.

ABSTRACT:  When JavaFX Script was released, the mobile component was an important part. It was also one of the reasons many people and analysts believed in JavaFX as a real cross-platform client-side framework.  For a number of reasons, JavaFX on mobile disappeared from the official Java roadmap.  Fortunately, the OpenJFX team at Oracle made all the required sources available, and the JavaFXPorts initiative worked on providing JavaFX SDK's for the mobile platforms.  In this session, we will show the current state of JavaFX on Mobile.  We will show how to create a real cross-platform JavaFX Application using an IDE, and how easy it actually is to deploy that application on Android and iOS devices.  We will show some of the features and limitations, and talk about the eco-system that is starting to take shape.

You won't want to miss this one.

    The presentation was excellent. I was particularly impressed with the Gluon plugin that was presented. Thank you Johan for getting up with the Perseids to show us the progress.

      Makes me wish I could hop a flight and make it there before this start.

      Guess I'll have to settle for trying to win an IntelliJ license as a consolation.

    FYI... we are trying something new. Johan is going to remotely present from Belgium where he lives. So, the same great food and room, but more hardware and more heckling. :)
