Demos - using JavaFX Client


There are two ways how to run JavFX based user interfaces on your frontend:
  • ...the classical way:
    You first need to install a Java runtime via http://java.com/download. The runtime includes a browser plugin, so that you can start the user interface using Java Webstart (or Java Applet).

  • ...the new way, via bundles:
    Here the Java runtime together with the Java user interface are bundled. You do not need to pre-install Java on you client computer - Java comes as part of the user interface, and only is used in the context of the user interface,too. The bundle comes as ".exe" (or as ".msi") installation file for Windows.
    Key advantages: no requirement to pre-intall Java, no global Java installation (security), no admin user rights required for installation

Bundle/"App-like" Installation

Our preferred way of installation is to use the App Start launcher. The installation will be downloaded locally, but will be managed by the App Start framework - checking for updates and downloading updates if available. - Please start the launcher here: setup_appstartfx.exe


After download start the installation program. It will extract its content into you local user-directory - there is no touching of "/Program Files" or whatever directory. A launch item will be created within your Windows start menu after installation.

We currently focus on Windows-bundles - for reducing efforts on our side. Please contact us directly in case you want to view the frontend on Linux or MacOS.

Webstart

Using webstart you need to make sure that you have Java 6 and the JavaFX runtime installed. We recommend to install Java 7 anyway - here JavaFX is automatically part of the installation.

Start the user interface via Web-Start by clicking Start!.
