What could you do with your code in 20 Lines or Less? That's the question I ask (almost) every week for the devcentral community, and every week I go looking to find cool new examples that show just how flexible and powerful iRules can be without getting in over your head. Here are ...
As jQuery’s popularity in the .NET community has risen over the past year, one recurring theme I’ve seen is the desire to refactor away the details of using it to call ASP.NET AJAX services. Whether through helper function or specialized jQuery plugin, I’ve seen numerous methods propos...

At JavaOne, Larry Ellison has made some very encouraging statements about Oracle’s commitments to Java, JavaFX, and the mobile developer market. It is certainly good news that Oracle (i.e., Larry) sees the significance of the Java platform in its integrality. However, there are many mi...

Sun's Project Vector, which will be launched at JavaOne this week as the Java Store, is a network service to connect companies of all sizes and types to the roughly one billion Java users all over the world. According to Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz it "has the potential to deliver the wo...
As I noted at the time, Sun’s recent announcements with respect to Cloud Computing were sadly rather overshadowed by the torrent of interest around a piece on the Wall Street Journal site the same day, which broke the news that acquisition talks were allegedly underway between Su...
The goal of this article is to demo a sample Pet Store application written in JavaFX 1.0. I work for a company called Farata Systems. Laura is our office manager, and she doesn’t know Java. Everyone else does. We work in the enterprise RIA space using Adobe Flex as a main development ...
2008 is going to be an important year for Rich Internet Applications. Most organizations are delivering or planning to deliver Rich Internet Applications; however, at the same time, most IT managers are facing a dilemma: which Rich Internet Application technology and platform to use? T...
It's only taken Borland two years but it's finally dumped its CodeGear tools division, responsible for Borland's hereditary JBuilder, Delphi and C++ Builder lines as well as its new web ventures into PHP and Ruby, said to be used by 7.5 million developers. Embarcadero Technologies is b...
There were several JavaFX-related announcements and demos at JavaOne, not the least of which is the preview release of the JavaFX SDK due in June 2008. As the interpreted version of JavaFX was the prototype for the compiled version, the javafx.ui classes are the prototype for the java...
JavaFX is a scripting language that provides more powerful client applications in term of features for the user interface experience as well as being incorporated with server platform technology such as RMI, Web Services, and EJB. Its ability to reuse all Java libraries opens an opport...
To wish you Happy Holidays (and if you'll permit me, a very merry Christmas) I wrote this Compiled JavaFX Script Applet (that executes in a browser). For fast deployment I used the latest version of Java SE 6 Update 10 (formerly known as Java SE Update N, formerly known as Consumer JRE...
As I've mentioned before, compiled JavaFX Script is currently under development, and one of the last pieces of the puzzle is the UI features. Currently there are a few UI features that are operational in the compiled version, for example Frame, BorderPanel and Button. Fortunately, the ...
The next JavaFX Puzzler will be posted at 18:00 GMT (1:00PM EST) on Wednesday, November 28, 2007. It will be a compiled JavaFX Script puzzler, so you'll need to build the JavaFX Script Compiler in order to participate in the Puzzler. To help prepare you for the Puzzler, I'd like to yo...
There are several environments in which you can develop and run JavaFX Script programs. I'd like to help you become a JavaFX Script programmer in the next few minutes, so I'm going to show you the fastest route that I know of to get there, which includes using a tool that Sun created c...
One of the very useful (and cool) features of compiled JavaFX Script will be closures. In a nutshell, JavaFX Script closures provide the ability to define a function within another function with the inner function having access to the local variables of the outer function. This feature...
I'm at JavaOne this week, where the talk from Sun is all about mobile, or JavaFX and JavaFX Script. I'm not sure the world needs another scripting language, but then what do I know? I know it's a bit off-topic, but the thing that struck me about JavaOne this year is just how busy it is...
JavaOne opens today and it'll be interesting to hear more about this renewed interest of Sun in Java on the client. While James Gosling and Rich Green have already provided some details on JavaFX
When I was learning how to work with AJAX, I went through a number of 101-type articles. The biggest problem with these tutorials is that the authors are trying to explain several things at once, which is confusing. I'll try to offer you a very simple example of an Ajax application.
Java is a great language for developing enterprise applications. It's powerful, scalable, robust, secure, and typically very complex. As a software developer, I want to solve business problems, not spend man-months building the plumbing for my applications. This article will demonstrat...
Imagine building a house starting with only a pile of timber and a lump of iron, or making a bowl of spaghetti from a sack of wheat and a bag of tomatoes. The importance of having the right materials makes the idea of building products from scratch seem absurd. Similarly, any software ...
