Is JavaFX ready or still under development

When Sun annouced the release of JavaFX technology (which is supposed to provide RIAs), I tried the demos. But found them to be much slower than web start apps written in Java itself. I know about the upcoming consumer JRE and the related performance improvements.

However, I just need to know one thing, is JavaFX still under development stage or hass the JavaFX interpreter been released for production use?

If it is for production use, I see no place for it in the RIA space with such a slow performance in comparison to Flash and Silverlight.

Chandru,

There is an effort underway, led by Sun, to create a version of JavaFX Script that is compiled to JVM bytecode (see https://openjfx-compiler.dev.java.net/). This will address the execution speed issues, as it currently is an interpreted language. Deployment speed issues are being addressed by initiatives such as "Java SE 6 Update N" (formerly known as the Consumer JRE).


Thanks,<br />James L. (Jim) Weaver<br /><a href="http://JavaFXpert.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">"Helping you become a JavaFXpert" weblog</a>

Thanks for responding. I came to know about the compiler and the windows-only quickstarter of consumer JRE few days after posting this.

Anyway, thanks for your efforts.
