jaxenter, June 5th 2017

"JavaFX is now part of the Java SE 8 SDK. In this article, Java Champion Johan Vos gives us a quick overview of this essential framework and explains why you should use JavaFX instead of Swing...

The JavaFX framework contains API's that allow developers to create user interfaces using the Java language. The JavaFX packages reside in the javafx namespace, and the framework is part of the Java SE 8 SDK.

JavaFX was announced during the JavaOne conference in 2007. Before JavaFX, the standard API's for creating user interfaces in Java were the AWT and Swing API's. The AWT API's where part from the platform since the very beginning of Java (JDK 1.0, 1996) and the Swing API's have been added in JDK 1.2 (1998)..."

17 Feb 2017 Oracle preps developers for Java 9 upgrade [60740]
InfoWorld, February 17th, 2017

Oracle has released a guide to help developers move from Java 8 to Java 9

Paul writes in InfoWorld, "In preparation for the planned July release of Java 9, Oracle has released guidance for moving applications over to the forthcoming upgrade, which features big changes through modularization.

'The modularization of the Java SE Platform brings many benefits but also many changes,' Oracle said.

The implementation of the proposal has made its way into JDK 9 Early Access releases, which are available for download and testing..."
