A complete introduction for beginners to Sun’s powerful JavaFX scripting language
JavaFX is a scripting language which provides built-in properties for manipulating objects within a 2D coordinate system. A competing technology to Microsoft’s Silverlight, JavaFX provides the tools to fill and pen stroke colors, and create special effects, shapes and lines. It also manipulates images and play videos and sound and defines animations that affect objects over time. This complete introduction for any level doesn’t bury you with details. It starts quickly with an introduction to the power of JavaFX key features–scene node graphs, nodes as components, the coordinate system, layout options, colors and gradients, custom classes with inheritance, animation, binding, and event handlers. It then shows step-by-step how these features could be used in a real JavaFX application and will help an application look professionally designed. Commissioned by JavaFX product team and reviewed by renowned Java author, Brian Goetz, this guide is intended as the first and most accessible book for people new to JavaFX.

The Well-Grounded Rubyist takes you from interested novice to proficient practitioner. It’s a beautifully written tutorial that begins with the basic steps to get your first Ruby program up and running and goes on to explore sophisticated topics like callable objects, reflection, and threading. Whether the topic is simple or tough, the book’s easy-to-follow examples and explanations will give you immediate confidence as you build your Ruby programming skills.
The Well-Grounded Rubyist is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the best-selling Ruby for Rails. In this new book, expert author David A. Black moves beyond Rails and presents a broader view of Ruby. It covers Ruby 1.9, and keeps the same sharp focus and clear writing that made Ruby for Rails stand out.
Starting with the basics, The Well-Grounded Rubyist explains Ruby objects and their interactions from the ground up. In the middle chapters, the book turns to an examination of Ruby’s built-in, core classes, showing the reader how to manipulate strings, numbers, arrays, ranges, hashes, sets, and more. Regular expressions get attention, as do file and other I/O operations.
Along the way, the reader is introduced to numerous tools included in the standard Ruby distribution–tools like the task manager Rake and the interactive Ruby console-based interpreter Irb–that facilitate Ruby development and make it an integrated and pleasant experience.
The book encompasses advanced topics, like the design of Ruby’s class and module system, and the use of Ruby threads, taking even the new Rubyist deep into the language and giving every reader the foundations necessary to use, explore, and enjoy this unusually popular and versatile language.
It’s no wonder one reader commented: “The technical depth is just right to not distract beginners, yet detailed enough for more advanced readers.”
