Could JavaFX replace JS-frameworks?

Hello,

I am a Java-developer, my Achilles heal is the front-end.

I have been looking around for a JavaScript framework that has a ‘widget’ that can
help me facilitate drag-and-drop and I have been looking for a good book on JavaFX that can provide me
with that feature.
My thought is to create an application that could be deployed to multiple platforms - browser based.

I want to make the classic application : One Project has one or many ‘Consultants’.
It is a one-to-many relationship , for now, and ofcourse one ‘consultant’ could be involved in multiple projects.
All consultants have the ‘vacant’ status at first, all projects are empty
So I drag one consultant to project-1 and the consultant vanishes from the consultant-list, and it kicks down
to my database ?

Could this be easily done with JavaFX ?
I have some experience with Java Swing and framworks as JSF and Struts

regards, Inkimar

Hi,
JavaFX isn't browser based (unless you use something like DukeScript http://wiki.apidesign.org/wiki/DukeScript). You said that you have some experience with Swing. So let's see JavaFX as the replacement of Swing. Like Swing it is an UI Toolkit for desktop application. But next to this you can do a lot of more with JavaFX like mobile applications (iOS, Android) or Application for embedded devices (Rasperry Pi). The focus of JavaFX is definitively not the browser.
