Why would one use flex instead of just using java fx? Is one more able than the other?

I think, It is just a matter of preference.

Flex definitely provides more features than JavaFX. In my personal opinion JavaFx is not as matured as Flex right now.
It may change in the future.

I changed job fields to get an opportunity to jump on the band wagon to claim exposure and hands on experience Flex 3. With Oracle, Adobe Flex/Web Development, and web services exposure, the money has to follow.
I agree. Here's the link:
