I've hung back from answering this, as I'm the author of one of the JavaFX books currently available and I didn't think it would be fair for me to comment. However, as nobody else has volunteered an answer, I'll tell you about the two books I've experience of.
"Pro JavaFX Platform" (APress) is written by four highly respected members of the JavaFX community, including Stephen Chin who runs the JFXtras project (housing various extensions/alternatives to the standard JFX libraries). The book offers a comprehensive tutorial of JavaFX 1.2 plus the JFXtras project using Netbeans, through a series of small examples and a few larger projects. It is also designed to work well as a desktop API reference.
"JavaFX in Action" (Manning) was written by myself as a tutorial for novices that mixes fun with practicality. The book explains in depth (and in plain English) what makes JavaFX special and why it works the way it does, through a series of projects (my fav is the Enigma machine emulator!) It deliberately does not cover every single API class, just a broad representative sample -- the idea: compliment on-line docs, don't reprint them! The book is IDE agnostic, and tries to use free/open source tools when possible (eg: Inkscape rather than Adobe Illustrator).
Both books cover the latest JavaFX version (1.2) and both where written with the cooperation of Sun's JavaFX team members. Other books are available, but I'm not familiar with them -- hopefully other forum members will provide details.

yes. jfx takes advantage of gpu.
thanks for answer. Is GPU used in all platforms, including Linux? Or this is just Windows advantage?

Tiled world can be done with the Tile layout and you can scroll it with a ClipView.

How would you go about this? I've been looking for a refresh/repaint function for the scene, but quite frankly I am lost.

Are you testing it in applet mode? In this case, you must sign the applet.
I am not testing in applet mode. I just run the project in netbeans 6 or alternatively, running the project creates a projectName.jnlp file which i can add to widgetFX dock
Looking again, I see backslashes. You are on Windows? You should specify a drive (absolute path), I think, something like: "E:/temp/test.xml"
It is hard to say on which drive the current directory is (unless you have only one disk & partition).
I even tried giving the complete drive path but still get the same exception..

I'm interested in hardware acceleration capabilities of Java GUI and particularly JavaFX. I believe this is vitally important in the age of powerful GPUs. Adobe and Nvidia recently announced GPU acceleration for flash player. This would definitely provide a better experience for flash users owning Nvidia GPU.
What is going on in Java with GPU acceleration?
Has JavaFX some advantages in this area over Swing and SWT?
