Some time ago I blogged that Java Swing should be deprecated and replaced with JavaFX. In this blog I’ll show a piece of JavaFX namely event handlers and binding. I’ve created a simple Sign In window with a GridPane layout (it’s JavaFX equivalent of Swing’s GridBagLayout). I’m not going to spend much time on the GridPane itself, but will show you a basic event handling and a binding.
In JavaFX an event object is represented by the instance of the class javafx.event.Event. There are different ways of handling events. Depending on how you structured your application you can handle events either in Java or in FXML. In this blog I’ll do everything in Java, where you can process events using one of the following techniques:
- Create an instance of an anonymous class overriding its handle() callback method. Pass it to the the event handler for a specific event.
- Use lambda expressions.
- Use Java method references introduced in Java 8.
The Sign In window, will have the buttons Sign In, Cancel, and the hyperlink Forgot password. Each of these controls will use different way of handling click event. The Sign In window will look as follows:
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
