JavaFX supports full screen mode via the Stage class, and it works well provided you don’t want to switch back and forth between full screen and windowed mode. If you want the ability to toggle, then a little more work is necessary.

One of my semi-daily emails from Manning Publications just informed me that a new Griffon book, Griffon in Action, is on the way. It’s great to see that Griffon is gaining enough traction to have an “In Action” book published about it.

I had to swap the values of two columns in two different tables for one of my EXIGENT application requirement. I wrote a small Stored Procedure, to do it…After writing it I thought why did I write it on my own, I am a lazy guy, how I become so active to write it on my own???

Copy and Paste is coming! Let the masses of iPhone users rejoice. If you haven’t been labeled an Apple fan boy as I have, then you might not know that Apple gave us a look at the next version of the operating system that runs on the iPhone and iPod Touch on Tuesday. Among the new features that I am excited about are copy and paste between applications, support for CalDAV calendars (I’ve been a bit disappointed with Google ActiveSync implementation, especially since I would rather be using that with the CityTech Exchange server), landscape keyboard mode for all the built-in applications and device wide search. There was also a ton more that I won’t detail here. Head over to arstechnica.com for their coverage of the full list of new features for both developers and users or watch the video of the event and see why this is truly a major version increment for iPhone OS.

Since JavaFX has no scrolling support yet (not counting the Swing extensions), any desire to scroll around will fall to the developer to implement. In general, I don’t recommend trying to “roll your own” components since I have faith that scrolling support will be added in future a release, but in the interim, here’s a little scrolling experiment:

TDD (Test Driven Design/Development) is the practice of writing tests before writing the thing that will be tested. I’ve been simultaneously interested and suspicious of this way of writing software, trying to decide if the assumed rise in quality of the software could outweigh the dictatorial approach to writing tests (a testocracy)?

We had a great first two months of the year, participating in our first Virtual Tradeshow with JBoss, pulled off a great Alfresco Code Camp and saw the Chicago Groovy User Group (CGUG) get off to a great start in January with Sten Anderson presenting on a real life case study of how he integrated a Groovy DSL into a Java SE application.

The JavaOne sessions for this year’s conference have been posted on-line. Notably absent from the content catalog (notably that is, if you are me, or my mother), are my submissions. Since I have no shame in sharing my failures as well as my non-failures on this blog, what follows is the body of the rejection email that I received:

Similar to the java.util.Collections utility class for the Collections API, javafx.util.Sequences is a utility class for Sequences. It contains, as expected, functions such for searching, sorting, general manipulation, and object lookup. This seems a bit split-brained to me though.

Paul has written (and blogged about) a little piece of software that will analyze the tempo deviations of a song to try and determine whether or not the drummer used a click track. A click track is basically a metronome piped through headphones that can help the drummer (and therefore everyone else) stay on beat.
