Creating and Packaging a Game in Java FX 2.2

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

It’s been a long way for Java FX from the days of the F3 project the current release 2.2. Today there are many options how to create a Java FX application .. you may be using Java, Scala, Groovy or Visage, you may create your application in a programmatic way using the comfortable integrated builders or you may create your views using XML layouts and easy data-bindings with a few annotations.

If you need to bind your UI component properties to a specific application state, there’s a nice properties- and bindings API that makes your life easier.

In the following tutorial, I’m going to create a simple game application – one version using FXML templates, model- and controller classes and using external stylesheets – the other version as a programmatic version in one java class.

Finally I’m showing how easy it is to create a shippable application either as runnable jar or as Java Web Start/JNLP application by using Gradle and the Java FX Plugin for Gradle.

Often ant tasks are used in Maven builds but wouldn’t it be more attractive to integrate the Groovy language into our build process?
