This is a continuation of rterp's plugin. The original can be found here: JavaFx Property Getter & Setter Generator

This NetBeans plugin will help to generate get/set methods for JavaFX properties that are contained within a POJO.

The standard get/set code generator creates the following get/set methods for a JavaFX property which is not ideal:

private StringProperty name;

public StringProperty getName() { 
    return name;

public void setName(StringProperty name) { = name;

This plugin would create the following methods:

public final String getName() {
    return name.get();

public final void setName(String value) {

public StringProperty nameProperty() {
    return name;

It's also possible to use variables with the suffix Property in their names which will create the following methods:

private StringProperty nameProperty;

public final String getName() {
    return nameProperty.get();

public final void setName(String value) {

public StringProperty nameProperty() {
    return nameProperty;

Read-only properties and read-only wrapper types are also supported:

private ReadOnlyStringProperty identifier;

public final String getIdentifier() {
    return identifier.get();

public ReadOnlyStringProperty identifierProperty() {
    return identifier;
private ReadOnlyStringWrapper identifier;

public final String getIdentifier() {
    return identifier.get();

public ReadOnlyStringProperty identifierProperty() {
    return identifier.getReadOnlyProperty();


Press Alt-Insert to get the "Generate" popup menu, and select "Java FX Getter and Setter..." alt tag
