Hi, I’ve been using CUBA Platform and Studio for quite a time, and I really see this as super super helpful tool. So first of all, THANK YOU!
I’d like to share an idea that maybe will be useful to us all. As we know, Swing is way too old for GUI development. The better replacement for Swing is JavaFX, especially since Java 8, it’s already part of ORACLE JDK and ORACLE JRE. Also we can download OpenJFX for those who don’t want to use ORACLE JDK.
What do you think? Here’re some features that’ll improve CUBA if using JavaFX:
- Use of .fxml
- Easier for styling
- Easier data binding
- Easier customization
- More modular (e.g. Include fxml file in fxml file)
I know maybe it’s a lot of work… But anyway, thank you for your hardwork!
