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."

all three are probably great platforms, but I suspect that silverlight will win 1st place with Flex a decent but farther back second and JavaFX in a close 3rd (taking over after a few years from Flex as 2nd)

JavaFX and Silverlight were built to be platforms and integrate well into mature language runtimes. FLex is a platform tacked onto Flash and will only be popular because of Flash. Once the benefits of JFX and SL are realized, Flex is doomed and Flash along with it.
