A generic application framework based on the NetBeans Platform for JavaFX 2.0 application developers. For example, an actions framework is provided for hooking JavaFX events to a predefined and customizable menubar and toolbar. Modularity is generically part of the framework, as well as the potential to extend it with a docking framework that reuses the infrastructure of the NetBeans Platform window system.
A generic application framework based on the NetBeans Platform for JavaFX 2.0 application developers. It consists of NetBeans modules replacing NetBeans RCP Swing components with JavaFX equivalents. Constructs are included enabling other components to be replaced. The point is not to rewrite the world, but to change it. For example, instead of creating new filesystem folders, as the "eFX" project does, existing folders are used, but are loaded into JavaFX toolbars and JavaFX menubars.
