     ===============================
     What's in the samples zip file?
     ===============================
     
     The samples zip file contains prebuilt samples that you can run, plus NetBeans 
     project files for each sample.
     
     Extracting the zip file produces the following directory structure:
     
     --src  (Contains a NetBeans project for each sample)
         --<Sample1>
             --nbproject
             --src
             --build.xml
             --manifest.mf 
         --<Sample2>
             ...
     <sample1>.jar   (Runs the sample as a standalone application)
     <sample2>.jar
      ...
      
         
     ========================================
     What do I need to set up my environment?
     ========================================
     
     To run the samples, you need the following environment:
     
     - A version of the JavaFX SDK or JavaFX Runtime that matches the sample zip 
       file version. The JavaFX SDK includes the JavaFX Runtime.
     - A supported version** of the Java Development Kit (JDK) or Java Runtime 
       Environment (JRE). The JDK includes the JRE.
     
     
     To open the samples projects in NetBeans IDE, you need the following 
     environment:
     
     - A version of the JavaFX SDK that matches the sample zip file version.
     - A supported version** of the JDK.
     - A supported version** of NetBeans IDE.
     
     **To find the supported versions of operating system, browser, Java platform, 
     and NetBeans IDE for a particular JavaFX release, see the release 
     documentation page at
     http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/release-documentation.html 
     
     To get the latest release of JavaFX, go to 
     http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javafx/downloads/index.html
     
     
     ==================================
     How do I run the prebuilt samples?
     ==================================
     
     To run as a standalone application, double-click the JAR file.
     
     You can also package any sample as an applet, JNLP, or native bundle that 
     includes an installer and a copy of the JRE for execution in an environment 
     that does not have JavaFX installed. See "Deploying JavaFX Applications" at
     http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/deployment/jfxpub-deployment.htm for
     information.
     
     =================================================
     How do I run the sample projects in NetBeans IDE?
     =================================================
     
     The following procedure assumes you have already extracted the samples zip 
     file. The DataApp sample requires some additional setup, as described in the
     DataApp readme in the src\DataApp directory.
     
     To run the sample projects:
     
     1. In NetBeans IDE, click Open Project in the toolbar, or on the File menu, 
        select Open Project.
     2. Navigate to the location in which you unzipped the samples, and in the src 
        directory, select a project, then click Open.
     3. For the SwingInterop sample only, add the JavaFX libraries as follows:
        a. Right-click the project icon in the Projects pane and choose Properties.
        b. In the Properties dialog box, select Libraries in the Categories pane.
        c. Delete the existing jfxrt.jar and ant-javafx.jar entries.
        d. Using the Add JAR/Folder button, add two entries, one for the jfxrt.jar
           library and one for the ant-javafx.jar library, using the appropriate 
           paths for your installation:
           - jfxrt.jar is in the lib subdirectory of the JRE installation when 
             running with JDK 7 and in the lib subdirectory of the JavaFX Runtime 
             installation when running with JDK 6.
           - ant-javafx.jar is in the lib subdirectory of the JDK installation when 
             running with JDK 7 and in the lib subdirectory of the JavaFX SDK
             installation when running with JDK 6.
     4. To run the application in NetBeans IDE, in the Project pane, right-click 
        the project and choose Run.
     
     
     ===================
     Sample Descriptions
     ===================
     
     The following samples are included in the zip file.
     
     --------
     Ensemble
     
     A gallery of examples, which demonstrates a large variety of JavaFX features, 
     such as animation, charts, and controls. For each feature, you can view the 
     running sample, read a description, copy the source code, and follow links to 
     the relevant API documentation.
     
     
     ---------------------------------------
     DataApp (Henley Auto Sales Application)
     
     An end-to-end solution for a fictional global automobile company called Henley 
     Automobiles. Automobile sales are simulated on an EJB server using JavaDB, and 
     the data is available via Derby and a RESTful web service. The client 
     demonstrates a variety of data presentations, using a mix of FXML and JavaFX.
     
     The DataApp sample has multiple NetBeans projects and cannot be run without 
     some additional setup. You can find the DataApp readme and the NetBeans 
     project files in the src\DataApp directory.
     
     
     --------------
     FXML-LoginDemo
     
     A UI that demonstrates a simple login system and user session, using FXML to 
     set up the UI controls. Users can log in and edit their profile information.
     
     
     ------------
     SwingInterop
     
     A sample that demonstrates how you can add JavaFX to an existing Swing 
     applciation. Note that the SwingInterop sample is set up in NetBeans IDE as 
     a Java project that incorporates JavaFX components. In order to display and 
     run the application in NetBeans IDE, you must add the jfxrt.jar and 
     ant-javafx.jar libraries to the NetBeans project, as described in the 
     instructions on how to run the samples in NetBeans IDE.
     
     
     ------------
     BrickBreaker
     
     A classic game that demonstrates the use of JavaFX animation, images, and 
     effects. The object of the game is to use a bat to bounce a ball upwards to 
     break bricks while. capturing various reward tokens.
