With JavaFX can develop both web and desktop Apps? desk top apps what require to run? Is relatively easy to learn, if you are a SCJP and know JSP Programming? Basically is like ADOBE FLEX air/player to run and program on?

Just like Flex requires flash player to run in browser, JavaFX would run in the browser as an applet.
Also JavaFX supports Webkit browser engine which enables one to render html pages within a javafx application.
I think JavaFX has no greater learning curve, but may be you would have to get familiar with the apis added as part of JavaFX.
Being familiar with Java would be a plus.
JavaFX application would require javafx runtime to be installed.
