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?
First, a screenshot:
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.
