Hi James L Weaver!
I'm new to Java FX.. How is it different from other java script frameworks like Prototype , Script.acuo.lous? How convenient is it for people learning Ajax? How many years it has been since this frameword has been running?

Thanks and Regds.
Sridhar Palla

Thanks and Regards,

JavaFX was started was last year; there has not yet been a final release.

You can't compare it to JavaScript libraries, since JavaFX generates Java code that runs in a JVM (somewhat like applets used to do). It can use all the facilities of Java, including communicating with the originating server.
