Dierk Koenig (JavaOne Rock Star) works as a fellow for Canoo Engineering AG. He is a committer to many open-source projects including OpenDolphin, Frege, Grails and Groovy. In the interview with JAXenter he talks about building user interfaces with projector patterns with HTML5 and JavaFX, Groovy and the W-JAX 2015.

Dierk König discovered 7 GUIs: A Notational Usability Benchmark for GUI Programming and we thought it would be great to have an OpenDolphin implementation of it.
For me not necessarily the notational usability aspect is important but to find a good OpenDolphin implementation.
So far I have implemented 3 of the GUIs. In the descriptions of the examples I will explain
how I implemented them and what I have learned while doing it.
Some of the 7 GUIs are only concerned with UI toolkit functionality.
Since I want to focus on the ones which are more insteresting from an OpenDolphin point of view I skipped those for now.
For the client technology I decided to use JavaFX in a simple programmatic way but will try to find the time to do a HTML GUI in the future.
Since github supports Asciidoctor I decided to use that format for the descriptions of the individual examples, which brings back the fun in writing and the documentation close to the code.
When you go through the descriptions I recommend that you look at the original description of 7 GUIs: A Notational Usability Benchmark for GUI Programming.
Here is the list of the currently implemented GUIs with their descriptions:
