JavaFX - Reinvigorating Java on the client

Posted by rags on July 31, 2008 at 10:52 AM PDT

As one of the original fans of "Java on client," the launch of the preview SDK at http://www.javafx.com is a step in reinvigorating Java on the client.

The recent encouraging work on Java deployment at https://jdk6.dev.java.net/6u10ea.html
with the complete rearchitecting of the Java plugins and applets and essentially unifying them is really promising.

However, there is still a lot of work to be done. It's the preview SDK. Although a lot of work has gone into it, it's not cross platform (yet).

Hoping that the v1.0 will be real kick ass with feedback from developers and designers. In the meantime, I better update my HOL that I presented at JavaOne which is completely out of date :-)

Hello Rags, after some time of searchin i'am woundering if it's possible to use JavaFX in a normal swing environment and if so how to do that. I am searching for something like this: new JFrame().getContentPane().add(import(example.fx)); best regards -Pavel hit by a netbeans cube on the last jazoon-
