JavaFX Fundamentals

  • Josh Juneau


The JavaFX 8.0 API is Java’s next generation GUI toolkit for developers to build rich cross-platform applications. JavaFX 8.0 is an update from JavaFX 2.2 that’s based on a scene graph paradigm (retained mode) as opposed to the traditional immediate mode style rendering. JavaFX’s scene graph is a tree-like data structure that maintains vector-based graphic nodes. The goal of JavaFX is to be used across many types of devices such as mobile devices, smartphones, TVs, tablet computers, and desktops.
