JavaFX 12 and Beyond

BOF
Java Language

Explore what's new in JavaFX 12 and beyond. JavaFX is now unbundled from the JDK, but continues to be developed and released with the same rapid cadence as the JDK with a new release every six months. In this session, we talk about how developers can create and distribute applications leveraging the JavaFX Platform. We explain how the OpenJFX repository is organized, how builds are created, and how developers can influence the roadmap and contribute to the project.

Java Packaging Tool: Create Native Packages to Deploy Java Applications

Conference
Java Language

In JDK 14 we plan to deliver a new tool, jpackage, that will enable application developers to distribute their applications in an installable package suitable for the native platform on which it will run. Supported platforms and package formats include .exe and .msi for Windows, .dmg for macOS, and .rpm and .deb for Linux. Learn how jpackage works in conjunction with jlink to deliver a standalone application with the set of JDK modules required to run that application. We will explain how to use jpackage and give plenty of examples you can use for your application deployment needs.
