JavaFX and databases

I'm wondering about using ObservableLists / Maps for tracking changes and updating the database.

I'd be pleased if anyone can provide directions for this.

    Your question is a bit confused. I'm new to javaFX so as far as I know the ObservableList/Map are use to store data in TableView. You can use the Java class that map the table in database for ObservaleList. Here is the tutorial that create a TableView that have cell that can be editable(Example 13-10) :
    The edit data will also be updated to the ObservableList in this code
    new EventHandler<CellEditEvent<Person, String>>() {
    public void handle(CellEditEvent<Person, String> t) {
    ((Person) t.getTableView().getItems().get(

    You can get the editted items out and update to the the database in the handle. Something like this :
    //get the updated item from the ObservableList;
    Person updatedPerson = (Person) t.getTableView().getItems().get(t.getTablePosition().getRow());
    //update the changed item to database

    Hope this will help you
