I’m in the process of working through the documentation for Gluon-Mobile. With this tool, and JavaFX, it is supposedly possible to produce Android and iOS apps using Java and JavaFX. Being a fan of JavaFX, this could potentially work out quite nicely.
I’m curious if others have tried this approach for writing apps, and what success they have had or not.
True to form, I’m making every configuration mistake in the book as I inch forward, but I think I’m pretty close to getting their HelloFX example to run on my Android phone. The documentation strikes me as pretty good but a bit terse (I’m a big fan of disambiguating redundancy in “guides”) and maybe due for a “freshen up”. But on the plus side, it seems Gluon has an employee that tracks and answers questions on StackOverflow that have the Gluon tag. I’ve always gotten a reply same day, or early on the next day if I post late.
