public class Main extends Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    public void start(Stage stage) {


    private void initUI(Stage stage) {

        StackPane root = new StackPane();

        Text text = new Text();
        text.setText("Source Code Examples");
text.setFill(Color.STEELBLUE); text.setFont(Font.font("Serif", FontWeight.BOLD, 25)); Reflection ref = new Reflection(); text.setEffect(ref); root.getChildren().add(text); Scene scene = new Scene(root, 300, 250, Color.WHITESMOKE); stage.setTitle("Reflection"); stage.setScene(scene);; } }
