JavaFX and Java DB, part 2

June 22, 2010

Back in April, I wrote an article about calling into a Java DB (Derby) database from JavaFX. It showed how JavaFX and Java can be integrated easily, allowing you to write enterprise applications with an otherwise client technology. That article was quite popular, and I received a lot of good feedback (the link is below).

Recently, I wrote a follow-on to that article that did basically the same thing, but with a different approach. In the second article, I describe a similar JavaFX application that connects to the same Java DB database, but this time I did it without writing any Java code. In this article, I use a JavaFX JDBC Data Source, and it shows just how little code is needed to do cool things in JavaFX.

If you liked the first article on JavaFX-Java DB integration, definitely check out the second one about the JavaFX JDBC Data Source. And if you missed them the first time around, I hope you'll find the time to read them now, and I especially hope you find them both useful.
