Das Buch hat mir beim Einstieg in die JavaFx 2.0 Welt sehr geholfen. Den gesamten Source gibt es als Download über die Plattform des Verlags,
Es ist gut und einfach geschrieben und der Sourcecode ist auch gut erklärt. Um sich einen ersten Überblick über JavaFX 2.0 zu verschaffen perfekt!

Hier muss man die Beispiele ausprobieren, verändern und als Anregung für eigene Sachen hernehmen.
Mit Netbeans 7.2 geht das recht gut. Deas Code ist auf jeden Fall gut, um in das nicht ganz einfache Thema einzusteigen. Zum Teil sind die kleinen Anwendungen echt cool. Das schmale Buch hält also, was der Titel verspricht - nicht mehr und nicht weniger.
Auf Styling mit CSS wird kurz eingegangen, auf Layouting via FXML nicht. Gegen Ende wird auf HTML5/SVG und sogar ein bisschen Datenbankprogrammierung eingegangen. Manchmal kommen einem Deas Hinweise recht spärlich vor, aber sie reichen eigentlich aus, um die Idee bzw. den Kniff zu verstehen.
Den Abdruck des Codes hätte man sich eigentlich sparen können, denn den muss man sowieso zu laufen bringen und untersuchen. (dann wäre das Buch nur ein dünnes Heft)
Ich empfehle das Werk allen Interessierten, die rumspielen und erste Ergebnisse sehen wollen - auch unter dem Aspekt, dass es derzeit kaum Bücher zum Thema gibt.

HASH(0x9b181af8) von 5 Sternen Seriously nothing more than a few barely explained examples. 1. Juni 2013
Von Grant S. Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I gave it two stars instead of one, because at least they warn you in the title. But still, if you are going to claim to teach someone something by examples, you might want to actually explain how the examples actually work. Instead, the authors present the example and then describe the final result of the example, but with little explanation as to how the example actually works. No explanation as to why a particular approach was taken. There are little or no comments in the code, so you could have done just as well downloading some sample code and digging through it yourself.

Honestly, I just think someone is cashing in on the fact that they had early access to JavaFX and is just throwing out anything and calling it a book.

HASH(0x9b184384) von 5 Sternen A Disappointment 26. Dezember 2011
Von pro_crustes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Not bad, but it has two major problems. First, it falls prey to the bane of many a book on software: it's written as though you are already familiar with the topic. For example, by only the third "solution," it refers to a "graph" (which is a JavaFX data structure), but the only explanation before that usage is an oblique reference to the fact that JavaFX uses something by that name, not a real introduction. Second (and, I'm sorry, but this is major) the book is printed in a font so small you'll feel you used Adobe Reader to print it at the 80% scale setting. I call this "major" because the book is only a half-inch thick. In a world full of computer books that are three inches wide (or more!), printing a short book like this in a tiny font is inexcusable. As a middle-aged programmer learning JavaFX for the first time, I may be unusual, but not everyone is going to have the vision of a twenty-something grad student. For me, the book is, almost literally, unreadable.

The second flaw is the publisher's fault and should be corrected if this book ever goes into another printing. The first flaw is the author's and editor's, and I am left wondering if the real point was to add another entry to the collection of books whose "introduction by example" subtitle is a code-phrase meaning "answers to your homework questions."

Much as I hate to say it (as I was really hoping this book would be my entry point to JavaFX in its fully realized form as a Java API), I'd skip this one and rely on Web tutorials until a better intro text arrives.

HASH(0x9b184768) von 5 Sternen Exactly as Advertised 10. April 2012
Von A. Kadhi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The examples strike a good balance between simplicity and unneeded complexity. I really enjoyed the new builder classes, data binding and those awesome call chaining (functional programming rocks).

The material gets progressively more challenging and it covers some of the most interesting topics like graphics and data binding which I really enjoyed learning about (at the end my son caught me "exploring" and running "WorkingWithTheSceneGraph.java".

I can call this a decent warm-up. The next book I plan to read is Pro JavaFX 2: A Definitive Guide to Rich Clients with Java Technology.

For those of you who aren't familiar with JavaFX 2 (or the prior java-developer-unfriendly versions), it's a huge improvement over Swing and (old school) Applets. The new JavaFX apps and applets load a lot faster (at least more responsive) and thanks to JavaFX 2 they look gorgeous.

Unfortunately, my enthusiasm was a little nicked when I tried to run MyJavaFXApp in a browser and I had to spend 20 minutes running in circles before I remembered one of the issues that drove many IT departments (and users) insane: JRE conflicts. I had the 64-bit instead of the 32-bit version (BTW, the users are going to have even more fun now that they have to decide which one they need). No, seriously, Oracle has to fix this ancient issue.

All in all, I will highly recommend this book and JavaFX 2'sAPI is a pleasure to use and way too addictive. NetBeans 7.1 has made significant progress and is well integrated with JavaFX 2 (no GUI builder yet but you can use the soon-to-be-integrated standalone product: JavaFX Scene Builder).

Update 1:
Pro JavaFX 2: A Definitive Guide to Rich Clients with Java Technology is worth reading. I seriously enjoyed the book, the last couple chapters had a huge potential but fell short of their intended purpose: JavaFX languages are half cooked. A solid 4.5 stars.
One more suggestion: after reading at least one of these books, you should also try using the JavaFX Scene Builder tool: it's easy to use, and makes it relatively easy to leverage FXML to enforce a pure MVC design. I really liked the way it binds FXML file to a controller class.

HASH(0x9b184924) von 5 Sternen Exactly What I Was Looking For to Quick Start JavaFX My Use 20. Januar 2012
Von Dustin Marx - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was looking for a rapid introduction to JavaFX 2.x and JavaFX 2.0: Introduction by Example fit the bill perfectly. At the time of this writing, it is the only book on JavaFX 2.0 and it starts fast. I appreciated the fact that the introduction and history of JavaFX was rapidly covered (may want to access one of the numerous online blogs or articles on JavaFX 2.0 if more historical and overview information is desired) and that the focus moved very quickly to technical, code-based examples of how to use JavaFX 2.0.

The book is "recipe" or "cookbook" style and begins with easier introductory type recipes and moves onto more sophisticated recipes. It was only a matter of minutes to get my first JavaFX application running when using this book. I'm in a hurry when trying out a new language and this book satisfied that need. The books includes some NetBeans-specific examples, but no IDE is mentioned in most recipes and even those using NetBeans provide generated code so that NetBeans is not required. Each recipe presents a problem, presents one or more solutions to that problem, and then provides brief text description of features newly covered in the book by those solutions.

JavaFX 2.0: Introduction by Example is a relatively quick read with four chapters, fewer than 200 pages of highly technical content, plenty of code samples, and plenty of screen snapshots. The book is not intended as a comprehensive reference, but focuses on what its title suggests: an introduction to JavaFX 2 via working code examples. Some important topics in JavaFX 2 such as charting, FXML, GroovyFX, and ScalaFX are not covered in this book, but it provided me with a good enough introduction and familiarity with the language to be able to quickly learn about those via the JavaFX API documentation and other online resources. If you want to get into JavaFX immediately and with as little ceremony as possible, this book is a great place to start. If you prefer more pages of historical and overview details and wider coverage, you might prefer waiting for Pro JavaFX 2 Platform (be sure to get the edition with "2" in the title!) to be available (which I also intend to purchase).
HASH(0x9b1846e4) von 5 Sternen I love to learn from examples 5. Februar 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When it comes to programming, I love to learn from examples, so I though this text would be ideal for me. Unfortunately, examples not beta tested and are mostly incomplete. There is a website where you can download the examples in the book and I highly recommend the reader do so; the code in the text does not match the downloadable versions, and after the first couple examples, the text version fails to provide any information about what classes you will need to import. And, while that information is available in the downloads, on occasion that code does not execute as described in the text. Finally, explanations behind the code are extraordinarily terse and do not adequately describe what is occurring within the program.

Honestly, I do not know why potential readers should bother with the text; by itself it is practically worthless and to have any success you must download the non-abridged example programs. The text feels as if the author and publisher were in a huge hurry and failed to even perform an even rudimentary review of the material for functionality, completeness and relevance. If you are tempted to buy this introduction to javafx, make sure you get the second edition; while I cannot speak for it's quality, be assured the first will only leave the novice frustrated.
