Do you think Griffon and Groovy with JavaFX can be a killer combination? I could easily see this as a future standard.

My understanding is that Griffon is a framework written in Groovy to produce Swing applications, so I don't see how you'd use that with JavaFX since they seem to cover a lot of the same ground.

On the other hand, Dierk K├Ânig of Canoo Engineering presented a talk at JavaOne titled, "JavaFX Programming Language + Groovy = Beauty + Productivity" on using Groovy and JavaFX together. It was a good talk, and Sun has made the PDF available at, though you probably have to join the Sun Developer Network (it's free) to get it.

I hope this helps,

Griffon is just now supporting javafx. A little early to tell where this will lead. Interested in hearing from anybody who has tried it.
