I've recently read this post here http://fxexperience.com/2011/10/fxml-why-it-rocks-and-the-next-phase/
and I am looking forward to that binding capability between the view and controller class, JSF EL style.
I'm Currently implementing a different view for a legacy system with Javafx 2 and that could come in handy.
What is the status on that? Will it be coming out for 2.1 release, or 3.0 only?
That is a shame, i guess we just have to wait.
Meanwhile, can I accomplish similar behavior with a different technique?
I've searched in blogs and forums about this and heard about it, but none implementations!
I'm not aware of any way to do it in markup, though you could certainly do it programmatically if you wanted to. The initialize() method of your controller would probably be the easiest place to create the bindings.
