    Contributing a streamlined, but complete, version of group layout

    971987
      I have a very nice version of group layout, which I've missed from Swing, implemented for javafx 2 (as a framework independent layout calculator, and javafx 2 specific panel, of course). It's a clean-room implementation, got a streamlined API, and has fairly smart defaults. It's worked well for me, and I thought others might get use out of it. What's the best way to contribute the code to the project?

      Thanks,
      David

          Look at these two projects:
          http://jfxtras.org/
          http://fxexperience.com/2012/10/announcing-the-javafx-ui-controls-sandbox/

          For releases to open-jfx (which ends up in the Oracle jdk/jre), you can contribute to:
          http://openjdk.java.net/projects/openjfx/
          There are some legal documents you need to sign in order to contribute, plus raise a feature jira and attach a patch to the jira. You can find out more about the process by sending an email to the open-jfx mailing list referenced from the above url.

          I'd recommend contributing your layout manager to jfxtras now and, once it has got some use, follow the path of open-jfx contribution.
