Welcome to the DataFX project
What you’ve stumbled upon here is a project that intends to make retrieving, massaging, populating, viewing, and editing data in JavaFX UI controls easier. It’s all that boring kludge work you have to do between getting user requirements and delivering a rich user experience. We hope that this project helps primarily in two separate areas.
Firstly, by providing various data source adapters to ensure convenience around populating JavaFX controls such as ListView, TreeView and TableView. This is achieved by abstracting away the implementation details surrounding data source retrieval and massaging, such that data can be rapidly loaded and seen on screen. We also provide convenience around features such as sorting, filtering, on-demand loading, and automatic generation of TableView TableColumn instances.
Secondly, by providing various control cell factories to ensure convenience around viewing and editing data in JavaFX controls such as ListView, TreeView and TableView. We do this by abstracting away the implementation details for a number of common JavaFX cell factories such that they can be easily installed and used in your user interface.
In summary, this project aims to make the process of using JavaFX ListView, TableView, and TreeView controls easier, more functional, and more powerful. Initially, this project aims to support JavaFX 2.0 ListView and TableView controls, but future goals include TreeView and Charts support.
