A solution to the final classes problem

Werner, you are right – in some cases, that could be a solution. In my case, however, I need to implement additional interfaces in the subclass to fully leverage the advantages of our JavaFX-based framework.

I would also like to add that it seems less like traditional object oriented Java, to have to use a second class to construct the first class, which is why in general I prefer not to use that pattern.

It is sometimes a solution, yes, but I do not think it is optimal.
