In case you haven't heard, there's a JavaFX Coding Challenge, with prizes and stuff:

  http://javafx.com/challenge/?intcmp=2671

Even if you don't like the technology that much yet it may worth investing some time in getting more familiar with it, especially with such incentive  Grin

>  All entries must be submitted as a Netbeans project containing the JavaFX 1.1 application.

Forcing the use of a particular IDE...  I wonder if there is a good reason for this?

Nice!
I wonder what that sandbox restriction for IDE and country is about...
What if I came from Croatia or Afghanistan?

I assume this is a kind of mixed marketing strategy, so eclipse won't get in. If you don't mind the possible corporate political motivation behind this, it's not a big deal. Install Netbeans, change the keymap to Eclipse compatibility and start coding. Shouln't feel much different for this kind of project.

Yeah I guessed as much, I had downloaded Netbeans just incase.
Last time I tried Netbeans I didn't like it as much, but that's been a while now...

The Isle of Man has a great flag!!! Other than that, since it is "owned" by the queen, even if not part of united kingdom, I would assume that it would be legal to participate. Just ask.

I think the NB stuff could be because of the (relative) immaturity of JavaFX plugin for Eclipse. Even NB's JavaFX plugin has lots of issues. (well, that and the desire to expand NB's users base  Smiley )

As for the restriction on countries - it's nothing new, some countries' laws prohibit these kinds of contests. It's not that Sun likes some countries more than others.

And yes, games are fine.

Forcing the use of particular OSes too. I'm surprised you can't use Solaris.

I think bienator was joking about the weather.

That's because JavaFX SDK and runtime aren't yet available on Solaris or Linux. (both are coming)

Judging Criteria

...

- End user experience, which includes the performance and robustness of the application

Hopefully we aren't judged negatively for the 3 dialog prompts, or, you know.. for using JavaFX


But all jokes aside, the main thing stopping me from participating is the NetBeans requirement..

Why? Even I use Eclipse from time to time and I am still alive an my fingers aren't bleeding, so I would bet even Eclipse users won't die from using Netbeans once in their life.

Develop it in Eclipse, then at the end, import it into NetBeans and submit it Wink

you all have a good chance of winning! yes that's correct i'm not aloud to enter *bbooo*...
netbeans is great come on where talking $25 bigunz...

if anyone needs code related mumbles then ping here on the forum and i'll go kick people Smiley
a cool one is to put the height and width into the scene and not the stage (this makes your layout work without little hacks to do with title bars):

1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
10  
11  
var myscene : Scene = Scene {
     width: 600
     height: 300
     content: ...
}

// then add it to the Stage

var mystage : Stage = Stage {
     scene: myscene
}


oh hint: the more visual it is the better in my book, so games or just nutty stuff is top draw stuff.
good luck! lets do it... has to be a jgo member that wins surely?

Well Netbeans seem to improved a lot so it should fine for me.
The JavaFX Production Suite/SDK couldn't pick up Java 6 but that might be because I'm on windows 7.

that's a very good market plan to propagate javaFX, "the return on innvestisment" ( advertisment and finished demo ) will be huge in comparaison of the advertising budget (prices). seems that more and more compagny use those advertising method.

I had a look at the judging criteria, and there are six equally weighted criteria. One is for being portable between desktop and browser (or touch screen for mobile entries), which every valid entry will get. The remaining five are just re-phrasings of two criteria:

Criteria 1: The Idea (3/5)
 - Viral nature of the application, which includes the ability and desire of the user to pass the application or knowledge of their application to their social network
- Originality and uniqueness of the application, which includes the problem addressed or the innovative nature of the application
- Creativity and fun, which includes how the application differentiates itself and reflects the creativity of the developer to provide enjoyment and capture the user's imagination

Criteria 2: The Polish (2/5)
- Technical merit and use of JavaFX features
- End user experience, which includes the performance and robustness of the application

Looks like games will fit this pretty well. It's just a shame that it is only aimed at the filthy rich who can afford Windows or a Mac  Cry
