Hello and welcome to the ranch.
What do you think about future of java fx ? Nowadays i think it's unpopular maybe because there is so many app build with swing and ppl want to keep this ;p ? Is it books for beginners at java fx ? I have a lot of exp with swing

I think that JavaFX will have a bright future. Once Swing came out people maybe thought the same because AWT was already part of Java and teams needed to learn a new UI Toolkit and migrate applications from AWT to Swing. But Swing had a big benefit against AWT and tehrefore a lot of people used it. It's the same with JavaFX today. In my eyes JavaFX has a lot of great new features and you can create modern applications. Doing this with swing would be very hard or impossible. The book is written for JavaFX beginners but it's a big benefit if the reader knows swing. There are a lot of notes that compares the JavaFX APIs to swing.
