Hi JD DiMarzio,

I had read Essential JavaFX, JavaFX: Developing Rich Internet Applications - This was when these books were in their earliest release and also purchased JavaFX in Action but never got an opportunity to read that book though. How does JavaFX: A Beginners Guide stack up against these and other books on JavaFX?- In terms of the contents structure, examples, difficulty level.

One of the biggest differences between my book and others is that it was written specifically for release 1.3. There was a good deal of change in the fundamentals of JavaFX between versions 1.2 and 1.3, and JavaFX: A Beginner's Guide walks you through many of the new features.

In JavaFX: A Beginner's Guide I really try to walk a novice user through the process of installing JavaFX, configuring an environment, and create a first project. I wanted to make the experiences of learning from the book as close to being a classroom as possible.

I havent been following JavaFX much after the 1.2 release. Looking forward to reading your book.

To what extent do other sample applications/code used and explained in the book?
