Yesterday, we launched DataFX 2.0. One month after releasing a developer preview, we feel it is time to promote the current code as a public release. We feel confident that with DataFX, JavaFX developers can easily connect their applications to back-end systems, and make sure data is visualized in a responsive, thread-safe way.
For more information on DataFX, you can visit the website at http://javafxdata.org. DataFX 2.0 runs on top of both JavaFX 2.2 as well as JavaFX 8. We are now starting the work on DataFX 8, which will only run on JavaFX 8. We might release a DataFX 2.0.1 version containing bugfixes, but only if there is a real need for.
DataFX 2.0 is released under the BSD license. The source code is available at http://bitbucket.org/datafx/datafx and the binaries can be downloaded from maven central:
A direct download from maven central is available viahttps://oss.sonatype.org/service/local/repositories/releases/content/org/javafxdata/datafx-core/2.0/datafx-core-2.0.jar -- you can easily contruct the download links for the other components.
While developed in the open, and freely available, we do offer commercial support for companies that want a deeper understanding or integration, or that want specific features. In case you are interested, have a look at our support page athttp://www.javafxdata.org/support.html.
Apart from commercial support, we do our best to address all questions and issues raised on the google grouphttps://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/datafx-dev.
DataFX 2.0 focusses on retrieving data from back-end systems. With DataFX 8, we will expand this, and we will also spend more time on "Enterprise JavaFX", making sure that enterprise developers can leverage typical patterns as injection and inversion of control in JavaFX Applications.
Hendrik Ebbers wrote a blog entry on what we are working on already, you can read it at http://www.guigarage.com/2013/12/datafx-controller-framework-preview/.
We hope you enjoy DataFX 2.0, and we're looking to work with you in order to make it even better.
