Any idea on when the first books will be out for JavaFX?

Give it some time. JavaFX isn't even in beta yet.

There are two JavaFX books available that I know of. They are listed on the Planet JFX site at: http://jfx.wikia.com/wiki/Books

One of these books is in Japanese, and the other one (mine) is in English. They are both based upon the interpreted version of JavaFX Script. There is an effort underway to create a compiled version in which the syntax is undergoing changes (but the UI APIs will remain stable and continue evolving).


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

For beginners JavaFX A Beginners Guide http://goo.gl/DFvMn is a must have.

For advanced coders I would recommend Pro JavaFX Platform: Script, Desktop and Mobile RIA with Java Technology http://goo.gl/WbMK2

JavaFX 2.0: Introduction by Example has been published in December 2011.

 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
