Hello Gail & Paul Anderson,

Welcome !

I am a new bee to JavaFX and related technologies.

I tried to drag and drop some FX applications on my desktop, but it does not work.Is the drag to install feature of JavaFX need any extra setup?

Also please give us your opinion about Drag-to-Install feature in JavaFX in terms of security and etc.

Thanks in advance

Hi Ramesh-

Java SE 6 Update 10 gives developers the ability to create draggable applets which users can then save on their desktop to use later.
Yes, there is some setup with JavaFX, which is explained nicely in a post by Josh Marinacci here: Draggable Apps with JavaFX.

Are you the same Ramesh who wrote Core Security Patterns?

Hello Gail,

Thanks for your reply.
The drag to install is a nice and powerful feature.The third party graphics integration feature may open up innumerable options to write interactive UIs. I believe having third party integration in JavaFX makes it a centralized platform for all other graphics technologies.

Sorry, I am not the same Ramesh who wrote Core Security Patterns.
