Simon Says: Read this JavaFX Book as it's Being Written

· ·
Free Resource
Morris_cover150 Simon Morris is writing a JavaFX book with Manning Publications Co. entitled JavaFX in Action.  It is a "MEAP" release, which stands for Manning Early Access Program.  In that program you get to read the eBook chapters as the author is writing them, and provide input on the author forum.

Here is the table of contents from the book's site on August 12, 2008:

  1. Welcome to the future: introducing JavaFX - FREE
  2. JavaFX script part 1: Data - AVAILABLE
  3. JavaFX UI: The quickest GUI you've ever coded
  4. Painting pictures: impressive graphics, modest code
  5. Hex, files, and video tape: getting serious with GUI fun
  6. Is there anyone out there: connecting to a Web Service
  7. Going back to the Web: from application to applet
  8. Going mobile: escaping the desktop
  9. The best of both worlds: mixing JavaFX and Java

Simon's book is based on the latest version of JavaFX, which is the SDK Preview, available at Sun's JavaFX website.  Simon says: Go get the JavaFX SDK Preview release, and follow along as he writes the book :-)

Congratulations Simon!
