CHM Version of JavaFX Documentation

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

To make it easy to get to grips with the JavaFX Preview SDK, geekycoder has provided a distribution of the documentation in CHM format. Here you can find out how to get it.

Those who are enthusiastic to develop cool RIA applications using the recent release of JavaFX Preview SDK may feel hampered by the difficultly of locating information using the HTML documentation that comes with the SDK. The documentation can be hard to browse and use in a web browser, especially for a developer who wants to use JavaFX efficiently and effectively. The lack of a search function will also make using and learning JavaFX API a time-consuming experience. Although developers can still use an internet search engine to search for API, this is often slow and requires Internet connection.

image If you looking for a much better way of using the documentation, there is a solution for you. What better way to store this documentation than in CHM help format. CHM (Microsoft Compiled HTML Help) file is that can be viewed easily from those running Windows 98, XP onwards. It allows the user to select from a tree of topics and to perform search and print functions. In addition, CHM is a self-contained file can easily be distributed.

 

 

I have compiled the documentation into CHM format so why not download it and start to learn JavaFX more effectively.

downloadFile: Javafxdoc.doc (3.3mb)
Use Save As, then rename the file to javafxdoc.chm
(Renaming required as WordPress.com does not support upload of file with extension other than doc and some supported media format.)

Feel free to distribute this file

Although CHM is developed by Microsoft, there are CHM viewers available for other platforms

Note that I yet to try the CHM file on those platforms.

To find out what the CHM looks like, read on…

Do whatever you can do in a web browser, only better and more convenient using CHM Help
