    I'm confused. JSR 295 is terminated, and never finished. How are you supporting it?

    Well, why not? NetBeans GUI builder supports it since 3 years. The JSR 295 has been indeed withdrawn two weeks after the release of JFormDesigner 5.

    Anyway, beans binding is still a useful library and many of our customers use it. We'll see what the future brings...

    Any plan to extend jformdesigner functionality to javafx 2.0 ? It would be a fantastic new feature!!!

    @Umberto and @Octavio: We've added JavaFX 2.0 support to our roadmap. We've already refactored the designer core to support multiple UI toolkits and now work on basic JavaFX 2.0 support.

    @Paul: A beta of the JFormDesigner plug-in for NetBeans is available now.
