Pro JavaFX - App integration

Hello Stephen and Dean
Thanks for your time!

Does the book cover the aspects of JavaFX integration on mobile and desktop for the same application?
It shows the differences about each type of development? (if it has differences)

I'm new to JavaFX, so I really dont know what changes from one to another...

Stephen covers this topic in Chapter 10 as he takes some desktop examples from earlier in the book and discusses what it takes to run them in a mobile environment.

There are a few things you have to consider when running in the mobile environment. Some are obvious such as screen size, but there are other limitations that are less obvious. But generally, as long as you stick to JavaFX's common profile (i.e. the non-desktop-specific APIs) you won't have too much trouble. The common profile does cover most of what you would normally use anyway, so this is not a very harsh restriction.
