And don't forget, Sun is targeting JavaFX for the tv platform down the road, so there could be some revenue opportunities there.

I would say yes. A JavaFX program can access and use any Java API, so you could use JavaFX as a front end to other back-end services. If you have access to your PHP+MySQL website from Java, you can use it from JavaFX.

The binding mechanism in JavaFX makes working with GUI components easier than implementing interfaces with Swing. So you can develop faster and write less code.

JavaFX can be used in place of Swing, but it's is not meant to be a replacement for the Swing technology. For simple GUI apps, JavaFX lets you develop quickly, you don't have to write as much code as you do with Swing, and the end result can enrich the user experience.

You might want to explore the binding mechanism in JavaFX, which makes event driven programming easier than implementing Java interfaces. Also, timelines, transitions and path animation can enrich the user experience and is easier to implement in JavaFX than in Java.

JavaFX was introduced to make developing applications for the desktop easier. Currently you can use Swing components for a desktop app, but not for the mobile platform. Sun also intends to make JavaFX applicable to the tv platform down the road.
