Loads up a bit slow, but is usable after that.
I am not aware of a native JavaFX implementation of a similar framework.

Yes to some extent. But Flex doesn't provide for building standalone desktop applications. For Desktop they have Adobe AIR. But as far as I am aware, JavaFX should run in a browser or as a standalone on desktop.
I dont know how much JavaFX is different from Adobe technologies behind the scenes.

Frankly, I don't get why the resources being used for JavaFX are not applied to improving Swing. Making client-side developers go through a transition doesn't help, either, IMO.

Does that mean it's a better gui builder than swing? Is the code java code, or is it different? I know there was JFX Script which was 1.0 I believe, and now 2.0 is in the API, so I would assume it's just normal Java code?

I am currently interested in JavaFX 2.0, as I intend to upgrade a Swing app to JavaFX. Is it easier to replace Swing's buttons, text fields, labels on a JPanel by JavaFX equivalent components?
I have read an article on how to add JavaFX UI to Swing app, but look like it requires adding a completely new JFXPanel kind of thing into a JFrame, that would mean I may have to rewrite the GUI completely (
What do you think guys?
