public abstract class Widget extends Object implements Localized
Base class of user interfaces provided by Apache SIS. This base class is used for components that encapsulate JavaFX controls instead of extending them. We use this indirection level for hiding implementation details such as the exact JavaFX classes used for implementing the widget.

Other controls

Not all Apache SIS widgets extent this class. Other widgets extending directly a JavaFX control or other classes are Metadata­Tree, Resource­Tree, Feature­Table, Grid­View, CRSChooser and Map­Canvas.
