Writing a “Hello World!” application is always easy and a Java developer can learn how to write such an application with JavaFX in some minutes. But if you want to create a productive application the knowledge of “Hello World” isn’t enough. A real application should be well structured, provide an automatic build that ends in useable artifacts and contain only needed dependencies. In addition such an application should be testable and maintainable. This talk shows some general concepts how you can create and structure a JavaFX application that can easily grow and become more complex without loosing control of the code, functionality and maintainability. At the end each attendee will have a template that he can use to start creating JavaFX based application.
