If I want to deploy a JavaFX app to a standalone (i.e no Internet connection) network, can I do it?
Seems like it *has* to connect to jafafx.dl.com (or whatever it is) to pull down the runtime jars. Is there anything stopping me from pulling down those same jars, then re-hosting on such a network?
I think the answer is "no" but want to double check.
You only need to be connected if you are using Java Web Start, and even then it is only the first time you download the application. After that, Java WebStart caches all the necessary Jar files.
If you run as a standalone app, all you need is a JRE and the JavaFX SDK.

Sorry, should have clarified (And responded to this in a timelier fashion...): I'd like to write a JavaFX app that is an applet/webstart-able, but deploy it on a closed network.
I'm kind of just staying tuned on the JavaFX 1.3 release and hoping this might be an option at that point...however, I'm not really holding out much hope, JavaFX seems like it's stuck in quicksand right now.
