Developing a sample Todo desktop application using JavaFX and MongoDB

I wanted to explore learning to use MongoDB with Java and the best way to do this was to develop a toy application. And to add to this, I thought of using JavaFX and building a desktop application instead. I am building the application as I am writing this. I will upload the code onto Github once I am done with the application.

I am writing a 2 or 3 part series of posts on how to go about building the application. So do check out the detailed posts here. Just to clarify, I have started to write a few technical how-tos or my tryst with technologies on JavaBeat. So if you find this blog not being updated more often, you can find me at the other place. I would continue to update this blog with my experiences (so apt the title of the blog is ;))

Here’s an update on the TodoFX application:
