InfoWorld Test Center evaluation,
James Borck examined the JavaFX Preview
and said, "There's a lot to like
about the new SDK. It's rich in capabilities, and its Java-like syntax
makes it a good springboard to RIAs for Java developers."
James particularly liked the grammar and semantics of the new JavaFX Script and was wowed by the great data-binding capabilities, palletized library of widgets, and features for programmatically directing 2-D keyframe animations. Further, he liked the less-verbose declarative syntax employed in JavaFX.
|Overall, James was pleased with
the JavaFX SDK Preview, noting, "easy
integration with existing Java apps should make JavaFX an immediately
attractive option for creating enterprise dashboards or bringing a
modern look to Java relics."
He is very hopeful about the future of the SDK stating, "The Java camp finally has a heavyweight in the RIA game. It's long overdue."
