This is actually done for a reason. @BXML only works for trusted code. Using get() allows many of the tutorials to be executed as unsigned applets.

I noticed on for example http://pivot.apache.org/tutorials/data-binding.html components are extracted from the namespace manually instead of using the @BXML annotation. I think it is important to upgrade this to not discourage new potential users of the framework, as:

loadJavaButton = (PushButton)namespace.get("loadJavaButton");

looks horrible compared to:

@BXML PushButton loadJavaButton;

Is there a ticket or plan to upgrade the examples?
