Dear Authors,

What is the purpose of introducing JavaFX? To which kind(s) of application it is applicable (only swing based?)? Is there any sample chapter/introduction available to read (I don't have any experience on this )? And I read a small overview at the amazon.

I have the same question - is JavaFX for enterprise applications? I have been working with Java for 10 years mostly on the serverside , trying to make
a shift to UI - is JavaFX is the right technology to go with ? I worked little with JSF and found the concepts cool expect its slowness. Please advise.

Thank you

Sanjay

I see JavaFX mentioned in company with Groovy and BeanShell, giving me the impression JavaFX is intended to serve as a scripting language outside of web pages. It seems like JavaFX has a ways to go in defining itself clearly before many can understand how to or why to adopt it.

JavaFX was introduced to make developing applications for the desktop easier. Currently you can use Swing components for a desktop app, but not for the mobile platform. Sun also intends to make JavaFX applicable to the tv platform down the road.
