Java SE: Building Your First JavaFX Application

by Buddha Jyothiprasad

This course will provide you with a quick introduction to basic JavaFX features and help you build your first JavaFX Application.

What you'll learn

JavaFX provides a lightweight, hardware-accelerated Java GUI platform. This course, Java SE: Building Your First JavaFX Application, teaches you how to get started with JavaFX. Beginning from a clean slate, this course shows how a developer can set up their own development environment and start writing desktop applications from the first module. It also teaches you how to develop applications that react to the user events. This course wraps up by talking about persisting data, and how the tasks can be stored in an XML file to be shared across sessions. By the time you finish the course, you will be able to develop your own Desktop applications with JavaFX, which is quite a departure from the boring command line applications you have been developing since writing a hello world program in Java.
