And so I'm happy to announce the availabilty of a first Early Access version of Drombler FX. Drombler FX is a modular Rich Client Platform for JavaFX based on:
- OSGi: OSGi is the de facto standard for writing modular software in Java.
- Maven (POM-first): Drombler FX applications can be build with Maven. The build follows the standard POM-first approach (the OSGi meta data will be generated for you). A custom Maven Plugin will help you to easily create JavaFX applications with Maven. A custom Maven Archetype will help you to get started.
- Declarative programming model: Annotations can be used at many places to register elements such as menus, toolbars and GUI components.
There's a Getting Started page which explains how to create, build and run a Drombler FX sample application with a few simple steps.
In addition, this Early Access release of Drombler FX provides initial versions of the following frameworks:
You can use the Drombler Forum for questions and discussions.

Note: As this is an Early Access release, all APIs might be subject to change.
