The application enables a sun lounger business to keep track of sun loungers available for booking during the day. Continue reading “SunLounger”
A Java desktop application to decode JSON Web Tokens. Built using OpenJDK 11 and OpenJFX 11. The team members who built the application were Klaus Cepani, Jorid Spaha, Josh James and John McNeil.
The source code for the application demonstrated here can be found Continue reading “JWT Decoder”
For those people who spend their time visiting people this application is perfect. Rendezvous allows you to enter all your appointments.

The month, week, and day calendar views allow you to see upcoming appointments.
Breakout4J is a JavaFX single-player game based on the old Atri games console game called Breakout. This is the application that students build from the ground up as part of the online course “How to design and build your first real application in JavaFX”.
This is a follow-on article for building Java desktop applications using OpenJDK11 and OpenJFX 11. See
- Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application
- Create a Linux Debian package from JavaFX 11 desktop application
In this article, we are, like the previous articles, going to build the whole application using the command line.
The software tools we will use in this article are:
- OpenJDK 11
- OpenJFX 11
- OpenJFX 11 modules
- Wix Toolset 3.11
See the earlier article Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application for more information about these tools
What is different here is firstly the application is going to take advantage of the modular system introduced in Java 9. Secondly, we are going to build a Java Runtime Environment that includes the JavaFX modules our application requires. We will then package up the Java application with the JRE however, this will leave us with a JRE for any other Java applications providing the modules they need are included in the JRE.
Take your Java skills to the next level. I saw a Twitter post with these words in it and it got me thinking. What is the next level?
It means different things to different people. When learning Java that could mean anything. Perhaps it is better to declare what is on offer, then people can determine if they think they need that skill or not. So my next project should be “Getting started building Java desktop applications”
As a software developer, my focus is on building Java Desktop applications for the Windows operating system. Therefore, most of the material I produce is centered around this. However, in this article, I am venturing into the world of Linux as I know there are many people who use Linux as their platform. Continue reading “Create a Linux Debian package from JavaFX 11 desktop application”
Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application
With the advent of Java 9 and the introduction of 6 monthly release cycles, the Java Desktop landscape has changed considerably. If you find yourself looking to build Desktop applications using JavaFX and present them as self-contained applications, then take note. Continue reading “Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application”
What is the point of writing an application if no one is going to use it? We all want our applications out there in the hands of users.
So how can we achieve this if we are building JavaFX applications for the desktop? Continue reading “Showcasing a deployable JavaFX application”
Even Java Desktop applications can use web services, and in this article, we will take a look at how to make a call to a SOAP web service and receive a response. For this simple example, we will make use of “The Naked Web Service” which was produced as an earlier article.Continue reading “Java client calling SOAP web service”
