Java Champion Adam Bien Examines Deployment Possibilities September 6, 2012,
Volume 175, Issue 1
Part 3 of Java Champion Adam Bien's article series on Enterprise JavaFX Deployment with LightView is available on OTN, Janice J. Heiss reports. Part 3 explores ways to use Maven 3 to build and deploy the LightView application in all available deployment modes. Bien also shows how to sign and deploy LightView with a Java EE 6 application, according to Heiss, who also notes that Bien takes an uncomplicated view of JavaFX, calling it "just another Java library," enabling users to employ all of the established build, test, and deployment infrastructure. In the introduction to Part 3 Bien himself observes that JavaFX 2 supports multiple strategies for the way JavaFX applications are deployed: as embedded browser applications; as installable Java Web Start applications; or as standalone Java applications. Heiss provides links to all three parts of Bien's series.
