Re: Build farm for OpenJFX (on ARM)

2015-02-05 Thread Erik De Rijcke
Hi David,

I've just tried to build the soft float version following the instructions
on the wiki. However when doing a 'gradle -PCOMPILE_TARGETS=armv6sf'. It
complains 'Error: missing tool packages: [arm-linaro-4.7.tgz]'.

I assume the shellscript that downloads the cross compiler tools is missing
some libraries (?). Installing 'gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi' didn't solve it
either.

 me find the right media development packages ?)

 Pretty excited to see this moving forward. Was dabbling last night to move
 some of the packaging steps into the Open, so that when we have a
 Cloudbees build, it will have a simple output overlay bundle.

 Glad to hear the 'Building for ARM' Wiki worked out for you. I have put a
 lot of time into the Building part of the Wiki, and am always looking for
 corrections/clarifications.

 As for treading on toes - Kevin and I are really pleased that the
 community is picking up these builds. Hopefully we can end up with a stable
 and a development bundle to point people too. There has been a lot of work
 in ARM (Monocle, touch, and 3D) that has not made it into an official ARM
 bundle.

 Open projects take a community, and it is nice to see so many of you
 helping out.

 Speaking of helping out if people want to help with contributions, we
 need a Oracle Contributor Agreement http://www.oracle.com/

  Hi Johan, all,

 Following the announcement that JDK builds for ARM will no longer include
 JavaFX I started talking with the OpenJDK Adoption group
 (https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/Adoption/Main) about the
 possibility of using their CloudBees CI system to produce OpenJFX binaries
 (for all operating systems including ARM) as a way to help keep JavaFX
 alive on IoT devices.

 For those who don't know the Adoption group, its mission is to help
 developers get started with building OpenJDK, testing new features,
 submitting bug reports, and cleaning up code.

 Adoption has a CloudBees CI set up and I've been talking with Mani Sarkar
 (@theneomatrix369) about setting up an OpenJFX CI project with
 cross-compile support that builds OpenJFX for all archs.

 The cross-compile instructions here
 https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/Cross+
 Building+for+ARM+Hard+Float
 are working great for me locally so now we're trying to work out how to
 move that to the cloud.

 I don't want to tread on anyone's toes here and we're not trying to become
 any kind of official source for JavaFX, just trying to make sure there's
 an easy way (e.g. binaries) for end users to add JavaFX to their ARM JDKs
 and to help people dip their toes into OpenJFX development as per the
 Adoption group's mission.

 Happy to coordinate on how we can make this useful and avoid any
 duplication of effort :)

 Personally, I'm a big fan of JavaFX and use it as the UI layer in JITWatch
   (https://github.com/AdoptOpenJDK/jitwatch/). I'm also into IoT and
 wearables and think JavaFX would be great on the new Raspberry Pi 2.

 Cheers,

 Chris

Re: Wayland support for JavaFX

2015-01-30 Thread Erik De Rijcke
Innitial (currently nont working) code lives at:
https://github.com/Zubnix/wayland-javafx

I do have a few questions:
 - How are you supposed to handle events coming from the display system
itself? For example, I don't see any X events being handled. How/where
should that be done?
 - How does the client rendering loop works? Like in X, in wayland you have
to flush queued op requests to the compositor. How/where should that be
done?

Re: libjfxmedia.so on armv6hf?

2015-03-17 Thread Erik De Rijcke
Why didn't you target drm/kms gl  approach? I realise not all platforms
support this, but it would greatly extend the number of supported
(embedded) platforms in a generic way. A quick google search seems to
indicate that the sgx530 (BBB) has a kms driver as does the vivante (imx6).
An RPi drm/kms driver also seems to be in the works and a lot of upcoming
arm gpu's seem to be supported as well. By targeting kms/drm you'd be
supporting a lot of platforms with a single codepath now and in the future.

Unrelated, embedded jfx should use
http://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/ instead of it's own
bug-risky evdev/raw kernel input implementation. ;)

Now if just somebody would sponser me so I can work fulltime to implement
these things ;)

 Quite a few actually

 The embedded platforms have quite a few features that make them
 difficult. (and I have the bruises to prove it :-)

 To start with, an embedded application is usually a single purpose
 instead of a general purpose computing device. Think a kiosk for example.
 When I say general purpose devices - I mean classic desktops and now the
 mobile platforms, where the expectation is that the machine will be used
 for a number of application.

 Several of you will say that I am wrong, that a Raspberry Pi for example
 behaves just like a pokey desktop machine. This is a case where the lines
 have blurred and will continue to get more blurry. The Pi was one of a new
 generation of ARM platforms that have a community around them - a place
 where you can both buy a cheap board and get an OS and drivers without an
 NDA. So just as you can make a kiosk using a desktop machine, you can also
 use the PI with XMBC as a media center.

 As part of the embedded FX team, our design center was less the Pi
 running with X11, but rather a direct to framebuffer (without the overhead
 and limitations of X11). And the Pi was an after thought for us, a way to
 help out the community. We were targeting a more modern platforms liek the
 i.MX6.

 The problem with the direct to framebuffer, and to some extent with the
 rest of the ARM platforms - the platforms are really fractured and it is
 hard to build a working distro. I personally spend many a frustrating day
 trying to get some ARM platform to do something we take for granted on the
 desktop. Starting with OpenGLES drivers, especially ones that would
 talk to the framebuffer (and not X11). The Pi is one of the few examples
 out there of a port that has an easy download that contains most of the
 needed drivers already integrated (and documented). I spent almost a week
 fighting the Beagle Bone Black before getting up. Oh yes - and add on top
 of this all that GL initialization direct to framebuffer is non-standard
 API, so we ended up with 3 code paths for the platforms we were able to
 build.

 So in summary it is easy to download a Linux distro. The hardpart is right
 after you do that, and you want the proprietary hardware accelerated
 drivers. There are very few platforms that make this easy.

 And the Pi (version 1) is really too slow. The i.MX6 has enough power for
 a real application. The ODROID U3 and XU are also pretty spiffy, but I
 could not get direct to framebuffer working for either of those. If you
 want to use X11 - OpenJFX will probably work for you, and it might even
 have graphical acceleration if the drivers are present and integrated.

 Our Embedded team had ARM media as the next big thing to do, but ...

 So now we have all of the gstreamer code in the OpenJFX repo. I really
 expect that media on the Pi (1) will probably not work well due to the
 speed of the CPU and the memory bus. Maybe the Pi 2.

 Again, you really need the right drivers in place to take advantage of
 hardware accelerated decoding of the media stream.

 With the right gstreamer libraries and drivers, I expect the media port
 would not take that long for someone that understands gstreamer.

 There might need to be some changes in Monocle to take the video stream
 hand off.

 I really would not expect that media would work without some debugging,
 and that after getting the build issues worked out.

Re: performance on iOS

Disclaimer: I have not looked at the demo you're trying to run. I'm no
opengl expert so my advice might be a bit off, but I do know the basics of
gl programming.

I'm not familiar with JavaFX opengl rendering algorithm but is it really
needed to create a new (sub)texture object so many times? You're basically
asking the GPU to allocate a new piece of vmemory every time *and*
uploading your data to it *and* destroying it afterwards when no longer
needed... It might be better to either cache your textures and upload your
data to it async (lots of methods to do that online) or have some kind of
texture atlas or most likely: revise the way the jfx rendering algorithm
works. Also, you're profiling CPU time of the glTexSubImage2D function,
which might stall (sync call possibly) on iOS if the gpu is busy.

Re: JFX as an OSGi service?

2016-02-18 Thread Erik De Rijcke
Hi Stephen,

We use JavaFX in an OSGi container, as a service component, in production,
so it's perfectly possible.

However there are a few gotcha's you need to take into account (I can not
c/p the code for obvious reasons...) which makes using it in osgi... quite
horrible :)

When triggering a javafx application in say, your component activate method
(as we do), you're actually creating a new javafx application instance, a
whole new identical object but without any scr dependency injection.

This is problematic as your osgi object has all the dependencies injected
from the osgi container while the javafx object does not.

What we do is this: in our activate we copy all our osgi dependencies, as
well as our ourself (this) to static fields, this makes them accessible in
the start method of the javafx object. When start is called, we store the
javafx object in a static field (which we access by calling 'this' in the
start method). We now have access to all dependencies and both objects at
any time. Now it's just matter of delegating calls from one instance to
another if needed...

btw, don't forget to call launch in a separate thread in your activate,
else you'll block your bundle activator thread indefinitely oh *and* sync
(block) your osgi component activate until the start method of your javafx
has finished else your component will announce itself activated while
javafx is still busy initializing.

Oh another gotcha, try to avoid using Platform.runLater, as that will only
work *after* your application component was activated, instead make a non
static runLater method in your osgi javafx application component and use
that. That will ensure that javafx was initialized before invoking any
platform run later.

Unfortunately javafx has a lot of static { Platform.RunLater} calls spread
out in different classes, so don't try to load those classes before your
javafx application was started... OUCH!

Didn't I say it was hairy and messy? JavaFX and OSGi is quite a bad match
unfortunately.

Re: JFX as an OSGi service?

2016-02-20 Thread Erik De Rijcke
This way only the app will be accessible by other components through the
service registry. The app itself can not have any @reference because it it
is javafx itself that instantiates the app object and not the osgi
declarative services framework (which also takes care of injecting your
dependencies).

The way to work around this in java8 is to take the approach I describe, as
far as I know that is the only workaround to get scr and javafx glued
together.

In javafx 9 this would be fixed by having your service component implement
runnable and use the api described by kevin, as you can reuse the object
created by the osgi framework.

 Anirvan, Kevin

 Thanks for this.

 I’m an expert neither in JavaFX nor in OSGi, but I think the basis of
 the JavaFX/OSGi incompatibility is control. To work with OSGi, JavaFX has
 to relinquish control of its startup sequence to OSGi in such a way that
 javafx.application.Application (or its proxy) is instantiated by OSGi and
 submits to OSGi’s bundle/service lifecycle. AN OSGi expert can probably
 formulate this better…

 Platform.startup(runnable) /might/ do it. Platform.launch(class)
 doesn’t because the object thereby instantiated is always under the control
 of JavaFX - and thus not of OSGi.

 I’m not comfortable using JFXPanel: if I wanted to use Swing I wouldn’t
 be trying to use JavaFX. But thank you for the hint.

2016-03-01 Thread Erik De Rijcke
I'm not a shader expert  either but I have worked (and written some myself)
with them, so I'll give my 0.02$ (given that I have no idea what the
complete shader looks like)

It looks to me like the initialization of a default scoped global (eg
Johan's vec2 pixcoord) is done using non constant variables. What that
means is if those variables are  'varying' variables or basically anything
that is only know at the time the shader is invoked... well that's a
paddlin' because you are referring to per invocation scoped variables (like
'gl_FragCoord' but anything with a 'varying' or maybe
even 'uniforms'storage qualifier might fail too I would assume?) to
one-time initialize a global.

Mostly guessing on my part but defining a default scoped global that you
only need in your main is considered very naughty anyway (even if it works).

Re: [9] Review request for 8157213: HiDPI support for Linux creates unnecessary dependency

2016-05-18 Thread Erik De Rijcke
I tested the patch.

Without the dependency I get a an enormous stage (I explicitly set it to be
100x100). Debugging shows me the screen is initialized with these values:

Screen:
ptr:0
adapter:0
depth:24
x:0
y:0
width:0
height:0
platformX:0
platformY:0
platformWidth:1680
platformHeight:946
visibleX:0
visibleY:0

visibleHeight:0
platformScaleX:4.2949673E9
platformScaleY:4.2949673E9
outputScaleX:4.2949673E9
outputScaleY:4.2949673E9
resolutionX:0
resolutionY:0


I assume the scaling factor is not what it should be?

With the dependency installed the stage looks fine.

Re: Support for GTK 2 & 3 now in JFX

Hi,

I tried using the gtk3 broadway backend. This results in a segfault.

Current thread (0x7fe8cc0c2000):  JavaThread "GtkNativeMainLoopThread"

It looks like there are still some hard dependencies on X which will
obviously not work using a non X gtk back-end. (I verified the broadway
backend works by running the gtk3-demo app in my browser first).

I ran into several issues, however I'm not sure they are related to gtk3

first of all it seems there is a dependency on: gsettings-desktop-schemas.
I'm not sure how desirable this is (I did not have it installed, installing
it fixed the error but I can image people not wanting to install it?)

Second, and this seems unrelated to gtk(3?), the screen initialization
fails (test was done using gentoo linux on virtualbox with windows 7 as

Re: What does this mean for the future of JavaFX on iOS?

2016-04-18 Thread Erik De Rijcke
I'm currently looking if I can get some robovm fork kickstarted. (
https://github.com/FlexoVM/flexovm/issues/4 ).

It's really a shame that for this one time Java has a real nice aot
llvm compiler, MS kills it. Being able to compile Java (or any
bytecode language) to a native, fast and small executable (especially
for arm/embedded use which does not require an Oracle license) would
be *really* cool. Let's see if we can continue to make this happen in
one way or another.

Re: Issues porting to Monocle EPD platform

2016-11-08 Thread Erik De Rijcke
Hi John,

In regard to your input issue. If it's a possibility, I'd recommend looking
at 'libinput'. It's an generic input abstraction library. It might be more
up to date and provide quirk fixes for (all kind of) input hardware.
https://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/
It's already the default input library used by X.org and Wayland
compositors but is in no way dependend on them.

regards,

Erik

Re: Planning for JavaFX.next

2016-12-08 Thread Erik De Rijcke
On of the major problems we have here using javafx is the the extremely
slow loading speed of the fxmls (we have about 15000+ arm cortex devices
running javafx in production). Sure, there is a lot to gain in manually
optimizing and reducing the number of nodes and whatnot, but that kinda
beats the purpose of having fast development cycle using jfx. As an
experiment we used a rather unkown/obscure fxml precompiler and noticed a
speed gain of 10s (worst case fxml) -> 0.1s!

My proposal is thus to absolutely have an fxml precompiler as the speed
gains are tremendous on slower devices.

Further I would +1 the CSS performance.

Another major hurdle we had was the complete inability to inter-operate
with any native hw acceleration (OpenGL ES2 to render a GPS navigator
inside the jfx app to be precise). Sure I understand the need to abstract
things away given that the user/programmer should not notice what platform
he's running on. In reality it is often very well known which platform will
be used. It would be nice to at least have some handles (through JNI?) to
use the existng jfx rendering context and issue your own custom gl
commands. Now we ended up rendering in a separate context and doing a
glreadpixels, copy that to the java/jfx side and render to an image.
Needless to say the performance is shi^H^H^H not good.

In general would say to have a look at your main competitor (Qt-gui imho),
see what jfx does well and make sure it keeps doing that, and see what
Qt-gui does better (speed, qml, native api exposure, wayland support to
name a few)  and improve upon that.
