This sounds kind of weird, but I think the publisher has somehow shipped this edition Pro JavaFX 9, the “fourth” edition of the Pro JavaFX series with 6 chapters missing.
Either that, or the book is being fraudulently marketed My primary interest in JavaFX is its 3D capabilities. However, the first thing you should know about this edition of this book Pro JavaFX 9 is that it doesn’t cover any of that. This is despite the book’s Amazon summary – and back page – prominently claiming “New material in this edition includes But that’s not all that’s missing.
Compared to the previous edition, which had 13 chapters, this edition has only 7. For the benefit of anyone who is inclined to feel ripped-off – as I do – here is a side-by-side comparison of the two editions: Properties and Bindings Chapter 5: Collections and Concurrency Chapter 8: Using the Media Classes Chapter JavaFX 3D Chapter Accessing Web Services Chapter Properties and Bindings Chapter 4: Collections and Concurrency Chapter 6: Connecting to Enterprise Services You should note that most of the reviews of this book on Amazon predate this edition and actually relate to the older JavaFX 8 edition.
The marketing is – at best – completely misleading.
The front cover prominently states “A Definitive Guide to Building Desktop, Mobile and Embedded Java Spress – except that there’s nothing on mobile or embedded clients, so far as I can tell. And it’s certainly not “definitive” after huge chunks of the book have been removed. If so, the publisher seemingly hasn’t even read the book – or the cover – before approving publication. The description of the book on the front and rear covers is in sharp disagreement with its contents, with the latter being much less than promised by the former.
I have requested a refund for this book and I strongly recommend that you do not purchase this edition until either they provide the missing content, or update the cover and reduce the price significantly.
This review is for version 9. It is only half a book.
If you want the full version, buy version 8. This book got some information I need, but not very impressive. I bought this book is because of I found it introduce some issues about cross plateform and system integrationbut it turns out that there is not so much content about these issues as I expected before I think the most of the knowledge can be found from the doc at java formal website.
But if you don’t want to spend your time to survey the info about javafx on the internet This book may be a nice choice. The best I’ve found for a thorough discussion of JavaFX. It is really up-to-date. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is an excellent resource for serious programmers. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in mastering JavaFX 8.
It is a practical resource on every aspect of the revisions, with helpful examples and explanations. It’s an excellent source for learning JavaFX 8, and always keep it around as a reference for when I get stuck on a problem.
Bought it to learn layouts This is by far the best JavaFX book to date. I have this book as well as JavaFX 8: I can tell you that if you are just middling about with simple prototype-like code or just want a very high level introduction to some of the JavaFX 8 APIs then JavaFX 8: Introduction by Example will be sufficient for you.
If you are doing anything remotely complex or are interested in building an application for a corporate environment, you will want this book. I chose to build an enterprise application with JavaFX 8 so I was looking for a book to help guide me.
I have absolutely benefited from reading this book and was able to use some of the code samples to guide me. That said, this book leaves a lot to be desired if you are looking to build a JavaFX 8 based application that is scalable, well-encapsulated, maintainable, etc. JavaFX is un-opinionated and setting up a simple framework for your application can be a challenge unto itself.
This book will only get you so far if you are trying to build a reasonably complex enterprise application with JavaFX.
