Rich Clients mit JavaFX entwickeln

Rich Clients mit JavaFX entwickeln

Dauer: 3 Tage, Tageskurs
Kurssprache: deutsch, Unterrichtsmaterial überwiegend in englischer Sprache

The course takes participants through the process of designing a rich client application using JavaFX. Using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern and a case study approach, participants analyze, design, and develop the user interface, connect the user interface to a database, and finally connect the user interface to a RESTful web service. The user interface is created using key Java FX components including layouts, UI controls, data structures like ObservableList, charts, smart tables, CSS, and JavaFX concurrency libraries. Participants learn to add two tier and three tier features to their application by connecting to a database using the Java Persistence API (JPA). Finally, they learn to connect their application to a RESTful web service using JAX-RS and the Jersey API.
