Software Company Anahata Developing JavaFX Bean Binding Framework

Software Company Anahata technologies announces it is developing a JavaFX bean binding framework.

On April 10th, 2013, Robert Nagajek, co-director and technical architect of the Perth (Western Australia) based software company, announced the company is developing a JavaFX bean binding framework.

In the words of Robert Nagajek: “A common issue with UI frameworks is how they can be integrated with a business domain model easily by the developer. JavaFX 2 has provided the Java developer with powerful tools to help model the user interface, but integration with a rich domain model in a client/server scenario is still left to the developer.

"Anahata is developing a bean binding framework based on annotations, that allow a developer to annotate JavaFX controls in an FXML controller that automatically bind to and from a rich domain model that is shared in server side code. The binding framework also integrates with the Java Bean Validation framework, to automatically validate UI fields real-time with error highlighting / pop-up validation messages.”

The director continued: “The key to developing a good framework is that it is easy to use. The JavaFX binding framework will be familiar to users of JPA, annotating fields to describe how the bind to the target layer.”

JavaFX ships with a string based bean binding mechanism by which developers can bind the property of a POJO bean to a JavaFX property using the property name in String format. With the Bean Binding framework being developed, developers can automatically generate bean metamodel classes with a maven plugin and use the metamodel fields to map a JavaFX component to a ben’s property in a strongly typed, where binding errors can be detected at compile time.
