For those enthusiastic to develop cool RIA application using the recent release of JavaFX Preview SDK will feel hamper by difficultly of locating information using the HTML documentation that comes with it. The documentation can be hard to browse and use in Web Browser especially for a developer who want to use JavaFX efficiently and effectively. The lack of search function will also make using and learning JavaFX API a time-consuming experience. Although developer can still use the Internet search engine to search for API but this is often slow and requires Internet connection.
If you looking for a much better way of using the documentation, there is a solution for you. What’s better way to store those documentation than in CHM help format. CHM (Microsoft Compiled HTML Help) file is that can be viewed easily from those running Windows 98, XP onwards. It allows user to select from a tree of topics and to perform search and print function. In addition, CHM been a self-contained file can easily be distributed.
I have compiled the documentation into CHM format so why not download it and start to learn JavaFX more effectively.
