At the second day I tried to attend some JavaFX related sessions. Next to JavaFX Mobile stuff (Gluon
), I joined the „What’s new in JavaFX“ session by Oracle. In this session the technical leads of JavaFX showed some features that will be part of JavaFX in Java 9 and 10. I think some of the shown features will be quite interesting to our customers:
- Java introduces scaling support for Hi-Res Displays like Mac Retina Displays or 4K Displays for Windows.
- In the future, Oracle plans to update the WebKit version for the WebView more often and the plan for Java 10 is to support WebGL in the WebView.
I talked to the people of jpro
. Gerrit and I have seen some very cool demos of JavaFX in the browser. The plan is that Gerrit and I will get access to the software so that we can write demos based on it.
I talked with Adam Bean about Docker. Based on a request that I did some weeks ago Adam published the Docker configurations that he did for all JavaEE application servers to the open Docker repo. I needed this configurations to test Dolphin Platform automatically on several containers. Adam was very impressed about the way that we currently use Docker to test DP automatically. He will do an interview about that topic for his blog.
