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 is a step in reinvigorating Java on the client.

The recent encouraging work on Java deployment at
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 In the meantime, I better update my HOL that I presented at JavaOne which is completely out of date :-)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-
