One advantage of JavaFX script over applets is that the script is easier to write than Java code. Instead of programming with Swing to make GUIs in applets, you use the declarative language of JavaFX. Granted, JavaFX scripts compile to Java bytecode, but it is much easier and faster to write. (I know i'm not saying this right. maybe someone else can explain better.) -- TT

thanks a lot Tom, for your information.
is there any more advantage in terms of performance when compared with Applets?

Probably not, since JavaFX uses the same class libraries. It's just a different notation and programming model.

I don't know of any other advantages of JavaFX over applets. Well, maybe, it could be that JavaFX is targetted at multiple screens, including desktop, mobile, TV / set-top box, and blu-ray disc players. because of the mobile screen, JavaFX may run more efficiently than applets. but i'm only guessing there.
Sun has completely revamped the browser plug-in, and is addressing the deployment issues that plagued Java Applets. Take a look at the following web page for details on the Java SE 6 Update 10 project: https://jdk6.dev.java.net/6u10ea.html
