FXML, Presentation Model & bi-directional binding

Hi together,

I just (re-)read Richard's excellent article http://fxexperience.com/2011/10/fxml-why-it-rocks-and-the-next-phase/

He talks about "the next phase" in FXML being the Presentation Model and the use of bidirectional binding in FXML.

I really like to make use of it because I think it's "the way to go" and better than MVC pattern. (I've worked with PM pattern in Flex/MXML and it was really comfortable.)

Now this article is 2.5 years old and I wonder, what's the current state of "the next phase", i.e. bi-directional binding in FXML or at least uni-directional binding.

I just tried the proposed syntax out and it doesn't work with Java 8, so I assume it's still not possible!?

Thanks for answer,
Best regard,
