This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
What do you mean by "compiled and interpreted versions"? JavaFX Script lives in a JVM, so the runtime execution process is similar. It's just that the compilation step is done right before execution, and doesn't need to be performed explicitly beforehand.

There are two versions of JavaFX. An interpreted version and a compiled version that generates class files. This can be seen at the netbeans plugin page: http://javafx.netbeans.org/
I quote "The JavaFX Script plugin for Netbeans IDE 6.1 supports the JavaFX Script language that is based on the OpenJFX compiler."
"The JavaFX Script plugins for Netbeans IDE 5.5, Netbeans IDE 5.5.1, Netbeans IDE 6.0 and Netbeans IDE 6.0.1 support the Interpreter-based version of the language."
If you try some of the OpenJFX code with the interpreter based plugin, you will find that it doesn't work.
