JavaFX For webpage admin
Fast forward to now. I am using the HTMLEditor to write this writeup! Getting the HTML editor on screen was drop dead easy thanks to simply adding a HTMLEditor element to a form. Getting the interactions working was somewhat more work.
The first challenge came simply because I have had to leave the lovely world of Spring for this project. RestTemplate does a great job of simplifying consumption of web services. Jersey and http://mbl-sow-test.spmapplications.com had to be utilised and that took some brushing up.
Once fetching the articles was done, I simply had to hook up the model to the JavaFX controls and get everything working.
There is still a bit of work which needs to be done. For example it would be nice to post a screenshot of the editor, but that is just going to have to wait.
Needless to say I am enjoy JavaFX. It is clean to program in.
