Version 2.1.3, 23 January 2022.
FXGraphics2D is an implementation of Java's
Graphics2D API that targets the JavaFX
Canvas. It makes it possible to reuse existing Java2D code in a JavaFX application. The following example is generated by JFreeChart-FX:
The code has been developed for the use of Orson Charts (https://github.com/jfree/orson-charts/) and JFreeChart (http://www.jfree.org/jfreechart). Numerous demos can be found in the JFree-FXDemos project page at GitHub.

Temporary: link above is broken, please use this in the meantime:
FXGraphics2D requires JDK 11 or later and is licensed under the terms of a (three clause) BSD-style license.
FXGraphics2D in your own project, add the following Maven dependency:
<dependency> <groupId>org.jfree</groupId> <artifactId>org.jfree.fxgraphics2d</artifactId> <version>2.1.3</version> </dependency>
You can build
FXGraphics2D from sources using Maven:
mvn clean install
FXGraphics2D is being tested using Graphics2D Tester and produces the output shown below. There are several areas that still need work:
- the compositing rules in
AlphaCompositecannot be mapped 100% to JavaFX equivalents
- font metrics are approximated
create()method is not yet managing the user clip correctly, causing problems in the Swing UI / SteelSeries test
- image drawing with clipping shows a strange greying out effect
If you have feedback about the
FXGraphics2D library, please use the discussion area.
