Wordle is a popular online game where you have up to six tries to guess a hidden five-letter word. By combining the power of the JavaFX UI toolkit with the latest Java Development Kit features, we show how to implement a client-side version for desktop and for mobile devices using GraalVM to generate native Java images for IOS and Android.
Learn how to create the main UI layout with Scene Builder and use specialized UI controls with pseudo-classes for CSS styling. Understand JavaFX property binding to control UI state, use JavaFX animation, and summarize the game results with JavaFX charts. We'll also use modern Java including lambdas, streams, method references, records, and enhanced switch expressions.
