Steve, I was wondering if you finally succeed to do what you wanted. Because, like you, I use JAXB and I wanted to manage JavaFX Properties in order to bind them.
I tried Jean-Michel way, by using javafx.beans.property.adapter and if you want to use binding between JavaBean Property and JavaFX Property the Bean must be more than just getter, setter .. the Bean need Bound Properties. Unfortunately JAXB do not use those Properties.
I hope I mistaken but I don't think so.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem ?
