Documentation for the first preview release (December 2009) is available here.



The JavaFX Composer is a plug-in for NetBeans IDE 6.8. It provides:

  • Visual editor for a form-like UI using components in JavaFX 1.2.1 SDK
  • Dynamic design editing based on states
  • Data access to Web Services, databases and local storages
  • Support for JavaFX binding
  • Simple animation editor
  • Multi-screen-size editing


JavaFX Composer Preview 2 will come soon ....

Download and install through NetBeans Update Center. See Getting Started tutorial for detailed information. Requires NetBeans 6.8 Patch 1 (use Update Center to install Patch 1) and JDK 1.6.





There are a couple of classes generated into your project by the JavaFX Composer, especially related to data sources. These classes can be used even without using Composer and can be further extended by users to provide more functionality. We therefore provide online JavaFXDoc for these classes that is available here: JavaFXDoc
