Hi,

Could I learn JavaFX from scratch or do I need previous Java programming language knowledge?

Which is the JavaFX learning path?

Cheers,
Mike.

PS. Congrats for your new book!

Learn basic Java and basic programming first, you don't need to know everything about Java APIs, but you need to be pretty fluent with the basic concepts and syntax.
  • Follow the Java Tutorial "Trails covering the basics".
  • Pick up any of the many highly rated programming and Java books such as Core Java.
  • Ignore any of the Swing tutorials in any of those courses so you don't confuse yourself - there is absolutely no need to learn Swing to learn JavaFX - they are completely seperate toolkits.

  • Then learn JavaFX:
  • Follow the Oracle JavaFX tutorials.
  • Study an up to date book on JavaFX JavaFX 8 by Example (make sure it is the JavaFX 8 version).
  • Also checkout Hendrik's book :-) "Mastering JavaFX 8 Controls".
  •  
    With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
