Oracle Forms with JavaFx and Swing

Post to Twitter

I'm sure that some of you have already used custom swing controls in Forms applications to enrich them. But have you tried to use JavaFx together with your Forms application?

JavaFx has cool effects, animations, controls, css styling and much more.

If you enter 'oracle forms javafx' or similar, in your favourite search engine, you get no specific results. So I think it is time to integrate JavaFx to an Oracle Forms application, isnt't it?

- It is a world premiere -


First, a screenshot:

Oracle Forms and JavaFx

We used the source code from the official example, that integrates JavaFx in a Swing application.

The result of our integration is a screen that contains Swing and JavaFx controls. If you change a value in the table, the chart is updated immediately. It is really cool because the chart has nice transition effects.

You can combine rapid application development with modern controls and new development concepts.

    We simply used JavaFX jars and dlls, changed forms config and integrated JavaFX as VBean.

    It's not that easy with Java 8, because JavaFX is integrated.

    The files we used (can be found in JavaFX standalone download):

    jfxrt.jar
    javafx.properties, javafx.policy
    decora-d3d.dll
    decora-sse.dll
    fxplugins.dll
    glass.dll
    glib-lite.dll
    gstreamer-lite.dll
    javafx-font.dll
    javafx-iio.dll
    jfxmedia.dll
    jfxwebkit.dll
    libxml2.dll
    libxslt.dll
    msvcr100.dll
    prism-d3d.dll

    The libs were from JavaFX 2.2.3 SDK.
