JavaFX receives praise from InfoWorld Test Center


In a 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."

Comments:

Unfortunately, my tests show the JavaFX running on JVM is also rather heavyweight. A bare application weighs in at 31Mb private RAM running on Client JVM. This simply doesn't pit well against Flex.
