What can we say about the difference between the Google Web toolkit which also talks about faster development of rich UI based applications in terms of AJAX and the JavaFX script?

Are they competing technologies?

I believe JavaFX script is best for creating standalone applications.

James please correct if i was wrong ?

@Mohammed

If JavaFX was meant to create "standalone" application, then why do we talk about web applications, client side / server side?

IMHO, As soon a we enter a web realm, its no more a stand alone aplication, it becomes a disributed application environment.

It's too early to tell which niche -if any- the various JavaFX technologies will come to occupy. There hasn't been formal release with a stable API yet, so nobody is yet using it on a large scale. Plus, JavaFX is a family of technologies (at least Sun has said that it will be), so there may be very different shapes of it yet to come.

@Ulf,

Agreed!

Mine was just an attempt to differentiate the web app and a standalone one. However, I think we should wait for the developer tools for the JavaFX to be released! Only then, we can get to know the entire family

Thanks!!

I don't think it has much to do with the developer tools. They can make it easier to use a technology, but not fundamentally change what it can be used for.

I think success will depend crucially on the success of the Consumer JRE (a.k.a. Java 6 JRE Update 10). If that doesn't significantly improve on the Java Plugin experience, JavaFX will have a hard time making inroads in the browser.

@Ulf,

Thanks! But on a lighter note, wouldn't the success depend on the marketing strategies too or in this case, "Promotion"?

Promotion does help but not for long. If it makes life easier it will be picked up by community without any promotion like Spring and Hibernate.
