Hi Chet and Guy,

I looked at your book on Amazon, and I have no doubt it will be a great read, however I didn't see anything specific to JavaFX. Does your book go into that technology?

Thanks!

Even though Filthy Rich Clients pre-dated some of the JavaFX activity, a couple of Romain Guy's components (StackPanel layout component, and the InfiniteProgressPanel component) are in the JavaFX Script standard library. You can see the InfiniteProgressPanel in action within the context of a JavaFX Script application (the beginnings of a freebase.com browser) at http://jmentor.com/JavaFX/JFXfreebaseBrowser.jnlp

JRE 1.5 or later is required, and this is a Java Web Start (jnlp) link.

Thanks,
