Scene Builder Integration in Bio7

11.12.2013

The JavaFX team recently announced the availability of a OpenSource Scene Builder API (“JavaFX Scene Builder Kit”)  to integrate the Scene Builder in a custom application (e.g. in an RCP application).

Reading this blog entry about a Netbeans integration i was tempted to integrate the SceneBuilder in my application, too.
So i started to create a perspective with different views for the Scene Builder components which are exposed by the API. Below you can see the first result using a MultiPageEditor to display the JavaFX canvas and the FXML source.

I have to resolve some bugs in the implementation and the API is quite new so maybe some thing will be changed. However an integrated GUI builder shipped with Bio7 would be a great win to create custom views inside of one application.
