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?
