+1 to having a TreeTableView. Business applications almost always need one and it has to be efficient too, unlike the Swing example TreeTable which rebuilt the entire model when almost anything changed. You just can't do this when the model is going to be updated many times per second.

Subject: Re: List of features for next release
Tom - I've heard this numerous times as well from people at
conferences, twitter and in private emails. I have relayed this back to
the people responsible for planning future releases, but so far it has
not been adopted on the plans.
I think, if we are to provide one in a reasonable timeframe, your
feedback on this list would be much appreciated. Alternatively, as I
mentioned a few emails back, I would just love to get what I do have
out into a sandbox repo for very early user testing.
