Java "I recently gave a presentation at the Portland Java Users Group about Java FX. After talking to some of the fine members of PJUG I realize that there is a lot of confusion about JavaFX and JavaFX script. JavaFX Script is just one part of the larger JavaFX umbrella. In fact, you don't even have to use JavaFX Script to gain many of the benefits of JavaFX! This weblog posting is my attempt to clear up a few things and get you excited about the future of client Java. After reading it I hope you will come away with a better understanding of what JavaFX is and why we created it."

A day late and a dollar short. Well, years late actually. Adobe (originally Macromedia) has about a 3 year head start, has excellent dev tools (Eclipse plugin), that's been shipping for over a year now.

Hell, even Microsoft is ahead of JavaFX with Silverlight.
