* Understand the JavaFX family and JavaFX Script and its relationship to the Java/Java SE 6 platform.
* Set up a JavaFX Script development and execution environment culminating in a Hello JFX application.
* Create a Wordsearch application and explore important JavaFX Script concepts by doing so.
* Survey the JavaFX UI Components including the commonly used ones that go into further building and enhancement of the Wordsearch application frame and menu structure.
* Use more advanced JavaFX Script language constructs for extending the Wordsearch application.
* Build JavaFX classes and objects, build the data model for the WordSearch application, and run the data model with a tester program.
* Develop the view for the Wordsearch application using a data model such as bind as well as drawing on a canvas.
