Application (JavaFX 8)

Application class from which JavaFX applications extend.


The entry point for JavaFX applications is the Application class. The
JavaFX runtime does the following, in order, whenever an application is

  1. Constructs an instance of the specified Application class
  2. Calls the init() method
  3. Calls the start(javafx.stage.Stage) method
  4. Waits for the application to finish, which happens when either of
    the following occur:
    • the application calls Platform.exit()
    • the last window has been closed and the implicitExit
      attribute on Platform is true
  5. Calls the stop() method

Note that the start method is abstract and must be overridden.
The init and stop methods have concrete implementations
that do nothing.

Calling Platform.exit() is the preferred way to explicitly terminate
a JavaFX Application. Directly calling System.exit(int) is
an acceptable alternative, but doesn’t allow the Application stop()
method to run.

A JavaFX Application should not

Zuma trial postponed yet again amid application for state prosecutor’s recusal

There was yet another postponement to the highly anticipated start of the trial of former president Jacob Zuma and his co-accused, French arms company Thales, who face charges of corruption, racketeering and money laundering in relation with the 1999 arms deal.

The trial, due to a lack of finality in terms of the pretrial proceedings, was adjourned to May 26, a date on which Zuma and his co-accused are expected to enter their formal plea.

Zuma’s legal team, led by advocate Thabani Masuku, indicated that it would be bringing an application for state prosecutor Billy Downer to recuse himself.

Masuku is expected to file papers formally requesting that Downer step aside from prosecuting the matter on Wednesday, giving the latter and his team exactly a week to formulate their defence against why he ought not to recuse himself.

During Monday’s proceedings, Downer told Judge Piet Koen that some time ago

An article on a website called Aerotime Hub reported that an entrepreneur by the name of Clarence Andrea Steyn has started an airline called Skylink Airways and plans to enter the SA
