After the release of JavaFX 1.0, I wrote a Pac-Man game using the JavaFX API. Many people were quite interested in the game. They either enjoyed playing it or asked me for the details fo the JavaFX code. JavaFX expert Jim Weaver invited me to write some articles about the process of building the game. After a few weeks’ hard work, with Jim’s constructive ideas and great help in proofreading, I finished the articles. Now they are published on insideRIA.com, an O’Reilly’s web site, as featured articles. There will be 5 articles in total and they will run through the coming 5 weeks.

In each article, there are a few web start links that you can click on and start a JavaFX program to see how it works. If you follow the 5 articles, you will find out how the game is built bit by bit. I hope the articles can help people who want to learn JavaFX or want to develop games in JavaFX. Thanks Jim for making these articles possible. My thanks also goes to Rich, the editor of insideRIA.com.

Here is the links for the articles:
