afterburner.fx 1.4.1 supports injection of configuration properties coming from a properties file which can be overridden with system properties. Also injection and lifecycle events are supported in superclasses. The test coverage was increased to 87.86%. However, for a "framework" with two classes it is not a big deal :-).
Afterburner.fx is available directly from maven repo (with sources and javadoc):
<dependency> <groupId>com.airhacks</groupId> <artifactId>afterburner.fx</artifactId> <version>1.4.1</version> </dependency>
Apache licensed source is available at https://github.com/AdamBien/afterburner.fx.
https://github.com/AdamBien/followme.fx is a sample application which demonstrated afterburner's functionality.
igniter.fx repackages followme.fx as a maven archetype. Just use
mvn archetype:generate -Dfilter=com.airhacks:igniter
to scaffold your first JavaFX application.
followme.fx and igniter.fx were updated to demonstrate the recent afterburner.fx features.
