Java questions/thoughts

And I stand corrected. All you need to get a Mac-like look is to take the Nimbus code out and that way it defaults to Mac-like:


The one you would need is to move the toolbar to the top (as it is you have it both in the window and at the top of the screen) but you could make this a user preference setting …

I got the jdk with fx from Azul too…
I think you can have Mac x86 or Mac ARM too

I am really sad that you deleted it. We here (my employees, my wife and me, where enjoying and saw the pictures you had in your head… :slight_smile: )

Glad you like it. The good thing is you can restore your deleted posts …

I did this, but as always disappointed with the result (and I really want to work with java).

I am not concerned by the ‘look and feel’ at all, but why I would get this error (which I hope is obvious to someone reading this)

warning: [options] bootstrap class path not set in conjunction with -source 6
error: Source option 6 is no longer supported. Use 7 or later.
BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)

what would a sample and download in a completely new environment fail with what would seem a simple error (to someone who knows the score)

after searching through gritted teeth I came across only a single reference as to why this was the case and a very well laid out solution.

now it works!

I love the netbeans IDE as I use it every day as MPLABX for embedded PIC microchip hardware.

now I am excited to have a play!

I can see why java would be really useful in that case.

It looks like to me that with a little bit of work, you can make Java look land behave like a native Mac application. Maybe not 100% but what I’ve seen is encouraging. At least close for me if I really need/want it. :slight_smile:

You can get really really close - check out the IntelliJ IDE which is java based but behaves very much like a fully native application in many respects
There are a few tell tale giveaways still
Many frameworks have trade offs (as we know)
