Interview With Diego Benna, Student Winner of the JavaFX Coding Challenge

Student Views and Reviews recently sat down with Diego Benna, developer of the Real Track Car Race application, and one of the student winners of the JavaFX Coding Challenge. Diego is a student at Padua University, Italy where he is studying IT. Diego began using JavaFX in January after reading about it on Sun's Web site. He was immediately “fascinated by the effects and the simplicity of the code, ”which was all he needed to try it out and “found that it was very easy to use.” Diego taught himself the programming language by studying the code examples on
The complete interview with Diego can be found here.

This is my game submit in javafx challenge. This is a car race in real track. You can set start address and end address and run in multiplayer in real routing generated track (you can see your home street). In this game there is a phyisic library, RMI, and DigLayout library all open source. There are some track generating algoritmics. I mashup data from free api for routing point and yahoo api for geocoding.

New advanced JAVAFX layout manager: DigLayout 2.2 from JDLayout library

NEW RELEASE JDLayout 2.2!!


In JDLayout package jar there is the DigLayout.
“I dreamed my layout as a group of sheeps. The sheeps were sorted by columns and rows. Each column and row had a dog and each sheep was watching at two dogs. The firs one was giving her the column and the second one the row positioning. If there was a bigger sheep, then a new special dog was created for her. That dog was taking his position whatching some other friend dogs”
