PDF to JavaFX Conversion in NetBeans IDE 7.1

· 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.

At Javaone2011, we attended a really cool talk on a new NetBeans plugin for converting FXG to Javafx (http://harmoniccode.blogspot.com/2011/09/fxgconverter-20.html).

We thought it would be really cool if you could do the same with PDF files (and to be honest we wanted an excuse to play with JavaFX 2.0 and the new NetBeans releases!).

So, the latest update to our PDF plugin for NetBeans not only lets you view and search PDF files in NetBeans but also converts them into JavaFX code so you can use them in your own code. There is even a nav bar to move through files.

Version 1 is available to download now at http://www.jpedal.org/support_siNetBeans.php so give it a spin and let us know what you think.
