SQuirreL SQL FX is a completely new program based on latest Java technologies: JavaFX and JDK 1.8 .
The purpose of this new start is first to teach myself how to program JavaFX and JDK 1.8 and and second to attract developers.
SQuirreL SQL FX is by now by far not as feature rich as SQuirreL SQL based on Swing-UI.
Note: Development of SQuirreL SQL based on Swing-UI will continue.
To checkout the sources please get a clone of our Git repo as described here.
In the checked out repository look at the sqfx/ directory. Everything is still very small and easy.
There is a small Ant script right inside the sqfx/ directory. To execute the script you need to download Ant version 1.9.3 or higher from here.
Open a cmd/shell window and change directory to the sqfx/. Form there execute <ant-home>/bin/ant. This will generate the directory sqfx/output/ where the build output (a plain zip file) is placed.
