TOPIC: JavaFX 2 using the Spring framework
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting
Abstract: JavaFX 2 is the future of RIA development. It takes the power of a modern scene graph, adds rich animation and multimedia capabilities, and extends to the web and beyond with seamless portability. At the same time, it leverages the power and breadth of the Java language and platform, allowing full access to existing Java libraries and integration with Java client technologies like Swing.
This session will introduce you to the JavaFX 2 platform with an end-to-end example built using the Spring framework. See best practices for applying Spring web service and authorization APIs in your JavaFX application. If you have heard about JavaFX before, but were not sure about taking the plunge, now is the time to see what you have been missing out on.
