Hi, Budi!

As with everyone else, welcome to the forum! Regarding your book, I don't see a Table of Contents (for the third edition), but I do see one for the second edition. I would figure the contents would be similar, so....

1) Does your Java 7 edition touch any on the integration of JavaFX into the Java framework? I recall seeing some info that the fx library would supplant Swing as the preferred ui constructor.
2) Does your Java 7 edition cover much on the different web technologies (such as JSF 2, etc.)? I see the second edition covers Applets, servlets and JSP (I think still the underlying technology, yes....sorry, I'm still new to the Java stack.....).

Hello Brian,

Unfortunately JavaFX is not a beginner's topic so it's not covered in my book. It does touch servlets and JSP (but not JSF). Both are not part of the Java platform, Standard Edition, but are too important to skip.

Thanks for taking the time to answer, Budi!

I know fx isn't considered beginner's, but thought that might have changed with the new Oracle shift (apparent).

Thanks again for the response! Good luck with the book!

Currently JavaFX 2.0 is not part of the JDK. You would have to download the Development kit for JavaFX or its runtime separately- Just like the way you add any other 3rd party jars to your application classpath.

I think Java 9 will come with JavaFX bundled along with it.

Thanks for the response. I wasn't sure if FX was being bundled in the core or not (I thought it was beginning in 7). I appreciate the info!


Thanks, I appreciate it!
