I, as I suspect you also do, use the JavaFX Scene Builder to put together your JavaFX interfaces. There's certainly still work to be done on Scene Builder but even now I prefer it to any of the GUI builders I've used in the past for the principal reason that what you see on the screen is (almost) always exactly what your application will look like.

In an earlier article I gave a complete break down of how to write a generic editable table cell. I've found versions of this code posted around the place so I thought it was only right that I point out a small flaw and a fix that I believe is safe.

Most of the applications I develop are web based and therefore, when deployed on Windows, are running as a service. This is great most of the time but when I want to programmatically control the application it can present some problems because starting and stopping services requires elevated permissions. This article discusses a solution that I've come up with that I'm happy to deploy.

A few days ago I wrote an article which gave a more complete example of editable table cells in JavaFX 2.0. In that article I promised another article discussing how to make generic editable tables cells since the first article just expected everything to be a string. I'm fairly happy with this solution to the problem of making formatted input cells but if anyone can suggest improvements I'd love to hear them.
