I was working with a project that uses RESTful WEBServices. Ok, HttpRequest and PullParser are great, but we lost a huge time working in the parsers, and the parser is a final solution sometimes, I mean, we can't reuse the code in a specific parser.
For weeks, I kept this issue in my mind and I started to think how to make simpler the RESTful WEBServices consuming. How can I work with JavaFX like the Flex guys work with Java? with no worry about the comunication with the server and focus on UI. So I started to work in small and simple tools to make JavaFX cooler and easier.
