A new Java / JavaFX library has been released. It’s called FXSkins.
FXSkins is a collection of new Skins for existing JavaFX controls. These Skins will add more functionality to the controls used in your applications with almost no need to make changes to your application’s code.
This library is targeted for the most recent Java versions.P. Vieira
Some days ago I finished a CAD application whose purpose is to calculate the energy efficiency of Dwellings (or multiple Dwellings). It can be seen as an application similar to Autocad (which is used in Civil Engineering, Architecture, etc) but with the specific purpose to do energy efficiency assessment.
I believe, having a good UX, features users have been dying to have, good, well structured code that lets you continuously evolve and better maintain what you already have and finally topping all that with a nice looking user interface, are the markers to a successful application. I think we’ve been able to score high in all those markers.P. Vieira
