Hi Gail & Paul,

Can you please tell us about the advantage and disadvantage of using JavaFX compare to using Flex?
My understanding is that they are very similar.

Thanks.

If I recall from our previous JavaFX promotion, JavaFX's main benefit is that you get access to the full Java API, provided your target users are not using mobile devices.
