I am super proud of my team who this week, rolled out Version 2.0 of Lynden Navigator to more than 1,000 desktops company-wide. Navigator allows our freight terminal managers to optimize resource planning by giving them complete visibility to freight that is scheduled to arrive and depart to/from their facility. In addition, customer service personnel have access to a new Shipment Tracing plugin included in this version which can be used to quickly access current information about customer freight and freight history.
The initial version of the application was built on the NetBeans Rich Client Platform (RCP), utilizing Swing UI components, but version 2.0 includes new functionality implemented with JavaFX. A screenshot of the new version of Navigator appears below. The top portion of the application is original portion that is utilizing Swing, and specifically components developed by JideSoft. The lower portion of the screen is new functionality that has been built utilizing JavaFX.
