Can Java FX be used for developing stand-alone GUI applications?

Dear All,

I want to develop a stand-alone desktop application in Java. Can anyone tell me if I can use Java FX to do so? Or is it that I have to use only Java Swing?

Regards,
Pankaj

Have you read the overview and have you gone through the tutorial?

There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.

Yes I had read the overview but I was confused as in the Introduction it says 'JavaFX is an expressive rich client platform for creating and delivering rich INTERNET experiences across all the screens of your life' but later in the description it also mentions about applications that appear on DESKTOP.

So just wanted to confirm from somebody. can you please confirm whether it can be used for stand-alone applications too?

Yes, you can use JavaFX for Desktop applications. And with JavaFX 2.0 it will become even easier to integrate JavaFX with existing Swing applications. And the JavaFX 2 beta is to be released(tentative date)sometime last week of May. And JavaFX applications can run in the browser as well using the Java Runtime browser plugin.

And as Darryl suggested- You could have tried the tutorial or the samples to confirm your query You learn more by experimenting.

Actually, I wondered that myself. Thanks to Pankaj Poshirkar for taking the beating for being lazy and clearing that up for me ;-)
