JavaFX Composer Obsolescence

JavaFX Composer applies only to JavaFX 1.x, which is obsolete. JavaFX Composer cannot be used for JavaFX 2.x and will never be updated for use for JavaFX 2.x, as the two versions of JavaFX have completely different bases. The last version of NetBeans IDE that supports JavaFX 1.x and JavaFX Composer is NetBeans IDE 6.9.1. JavaFX 2.0 support is available starting in NetBeans IDE 7.1.

History

  • 6.9.1 FCS (JavaFX Composer is a part of NetBeans 6.9.1 FCS) - August 5th, 2010.
  • 6.9 FCS (JavaFX Composer is a part of NetBeans 6.9 FCS) - June 15th, 2010.
  • Beta (JavaFX Composer included in NetBeans IDE 6.9 Beta JavaFX or All download) - April 22nd, 2010.
  • Preview 2 (JavaFX Composer 1.1 in the plugin manager) - February 15th, 2010.
  • Preview 1 (JavaFX Composer 1.0 in the plugin manager) - December 14th, 2009. Documentation for the first preview release (December 2009) is available here.

Overview

The JavaFX Composer is part of the NetBeans IDE. It provides:

  • A visual editor for creating 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

Download

The JavaFX Composer tool is integrated into NetBeans 6.9 FCS. Download the "JavaFX" or "All" installers of NetBeans IDE 6.9.

If you are using NetBeans IDE 6.8, you can download and install the JavaFX Composer Preview release from the NetBeans Update Center. See Getting Started tutorial for the installation procedure. Requires NetBeans 6.8 Patch 1 (use Update Center to install Patch 1) and JDK 1.6.

What's New

These are the what's new documents for each release:

Documentation

You can find documentation for JavaFX Composer in the following locations:

Below you can find a full list of up-to-date tutorials and guides for JavaFX Composer.

Basic Tutorials and Guides

These guides and tutorials cover the essential functionality of JavaFX Composer. The user should be familiar with all of these documents.

Intermediate Tutorials and Guides

These guides and tutorials go beyond the basic functionality of JavaFX Composer. The user only needs to be familiar with those documents which cover functionality he or she needs to use.

JavaFXdoc

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
