Can you give me an example of a good tutorial regarding JavaFX?
It can be a book as well.

Thank in advance!

My copy of JavaFX in Action was shipped today; I'll let you know how it is when I've read it.

Ok, as promised. I'm still busy with chapter 8, but so far it's quite enlightening. You learn by example which is a lot more fun than just learning new APIs etc.

I have just begun this tutorial, but so far it assumes nothing. it starts you out in kindergarten.

i do have a comment though. javaFX seems very strange to me as a java programmer. it is so completely different; what with functions, vars and defs. and use of colons etc.

i finished the tutorial i was reading which i gave a link to. while it gave me a good introduction to how to write javaFX apps it didn't tell me anything about deployment. i would suggest you go to www.google.com and to learn to write apps enter javaFX tutorial, then choose from the list; to learn how to deploy your app enter javaFX deployment, then choose.

JavaFX 2.0, presently in Beta, uses Java syntax. JavaFX Script is to be phased out by Oracle, but may stay alive in the form of Visage.

You'll find everything I know about that in the two pages I linked, and pages linked from there. I don't have any 'inside information' on the roadmap for either of the two technologies.

JavaFX Documentation is provided to teach us about JavaFX 2.0 from the beginning.. I'm sure if you read that precisely than you can be a JavaFX Expert. I'm now learning it too..

And If you want to learn JavaFX 2.0, never touch JavaFX script, or you'll be confused. JavaFX 2.0 is easier for JavaSE Programmer than JavaFX script.
I'm just giving some advise.

Hi all,
It is an old topic, but I want to re-ask the same question.

Can anyone give a link to good JavaFX tutorial (with complete examples)? The best tutorial for me would be 'JavaFX with Eclipse'.

The link I posted a year ago is still valid, and the page has been updated several times to add links to new content, including a decent set of tutorials.

Sorry, I don't know of anything specific for Eclipse.

Some JavaFX 2.0 + Eclipse specific tutorials are at:
http://efxclipse.org/tutorials.html

For general JavaFX 2.0 tutorials, the official JavaFX documentation site which Darryl posted a link to earlier is still far and away the best online resource.
http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/

Some books containing JavaFX 2.0 tutorials are:
JavaFX 2.0 http://www.amazon.com/JavaFX-2-0-Introduction-Carl-Dea/dp/1430242574
Pro JavaFX 2.0 http://www.amazon.com/Pro-JavaFX-Definitive-Clients-Technology/dp/1430268727

java2s has a collection of sample snippets code:
http://java2s.com/Code/Java/JavaFX/CatalogJavaFX.htm

The JavaFX ensemble application has lots of sample applications with source and is an excellent learning resource:
