Subject Evaluation of Pivot
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2009 01:29:25 GMT

Many thanks to Greg and Vicente answering and putting up with my probing 
questions while I have been evaluating Pivot :-)

I really like the structure of WTKX and as I am not developing applets at the 
moment love how the @WTKX annotation removes a heap of boiler plate code.

The current default theme has a nice clean look and feel. I am unsure as to 
what to think of theme specific styles but it is not a major issue for me.

I am impressed with the good selection of widgets. They appear to cover just 
about every need of an application.

The only difficulty I have is with the API documentation which is incomplete 
enough for me to have to ask far to many simple questions on this mailing 

I am going to have a crack at porting a desktop application to Pivot and see 
how it goes. The biggest hurdle for me with taking on new UI toolkits has been 
the layout. It is the one big thing that killed my interest in further JavaFx 
development. There is nothing worse than fighting with layout to get simple 
things done.

Well done with Pivot!
