This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am from a C/C++ background with fair knowledge of core java. I am working on an project that helps engineering students simulate electrical circuits.
There is an open source project of this sort written in Java (applet + AWT) - http://www.falstad.com/circuit
I wish to reuse this code but provide a richer user experience (rich web UI). I was exploring the various options I have and I came across JavaFX. I need advice regarding the following points -
1) Is it possible to develop this project in JavaFX and achieve similar functionality but with a richer web based UI?
a) If yes then how much of the existing code can I reuse?
2) Is there any other option (java based) which is more preferable for this project than JavaFX?
