After years of lurking, this is my first post so go easy on me :-)

Does anyone know of any JavaFX 2.1 compatible framework that I can use to create a workflow type engine with? I am looking for something to do the heavy lifting for me with respect to dragging, dropping and connecting nodes on a pallette.

Something like JGraph would have been nice, however, that is based on Swing. JavaFX 1.x had the ability to add Swing components to a Scene (not what I needed). JavaFX 2.x seems to have removed even that Swing interoperability.

Thanks!

You could use the JGraph JavaScript library in a WebView.
Loads up a bit slow, but is usable after that.

I am not aware of a native JavaFX implementation of a similar framework.

That's a great idea. Thanks John!
