Good for Starters - Hard to Read Code-Style (esp. on Kindle),
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pro JavaFX 2: A Definitive Guide to Rich Clients with Java Technology (Kindle Edition)
The content is indeed good for starters with JavaFX. Developers familiar with Swing or SWT however might get slightly bored when some topics are discussed a bit too detailed - but one can cope with that.
What really annoys me is that really ugly code-formatting by using builders and the fluent interface API: Readers ought to be in a kind of learning-mode so examples should be easy to follow. On Kindle (even in landscape) there is not much place (neither in books): the indenting necessary by the nested calls wastes space and the linefeeds break the "picture" of the code.
The "usability" for readers is really bad though the fluent API is a nice approach. The chained and nested calls to a bunch of builders that require several pages to come to an end is very nasty! In Germmany this might result in being called "Spagetti-Code" (though it has indentation).
When coding itself is a kind of art, not to loose track of the code, this applies even more for writing a book! The eye of the reader needs "landmarks" for orientation but these chained calls sometimes seem to go on forever - that's not a comprehensive style!
What I am missing are more detailed information about the more complex controls like tree and table, editing cells and that stuff.
In cetain areas the javafx-samples (version 2.2.7, application Enseble) provides more informative code-snippets (though tree and table are also very simplified and Popup is missing at all)
