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


The JavaFX Composer tool is integrated into NetBeans 6.9 FCS.

You can also download and install its preview release for NetBeans 6.8 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.



Tutorials and Guides

What's New

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

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.


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
