Our Experience Building a JavaFX UI for a Seam Booking Application

This article is also posted on JavaLobby.com

This is a guest post by Anton Polyakov. Anton is Senior Developer at Exadel, he describes our experience building a JavaFX front end for a Seam booking application.

JavaFX is new tool set for developing and delivering Rich Internet Applications or RIAs. JavaFX 1.0 was released in December 2008, and JavaFX 1.2 was released in June 2009. As these new releases have rolled out, the JavaFX community has been growing fast. This growth has produced a large selection of resources, articles, blog posts, books, and extension projects.

Over this time, while JavaFX has been used extensively to provide “richness” in applications, it has been mostly “missing in action” for enterprise-level Web applications that would involve greater integration of JavaFX with the server side of the application. Remember, a Rich Internet Application is delivered from a server to the the client, but, more importantly, it continues to communicate with the server. The UI runs on the client while the application logic runs on the server.

We believe that for JavaFX to continue growing and compete against Flex and Silverlight, it should be acceptable by the enterprise for use in applications that take full advantage of both sides of Rich Internet Applications (Rich Enterprise Applications). Adobe and its community has done an excellent job demonstrating that Flex can be used to build real-world enterprise applications. The same needs to happen for JavaFX.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
