From a company best known for functionality under the covers, it is great to see truly great user interface technology emerge to complete the virtual last mile to people on the "screens of our lives."
JavaFX Mobile will be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, from February 16-19. Coincidentally, today I am in beautiful Pebble Beach, California, for customer meetings where we will demonstrate JavaFX at work with Sun JavaFX partner Malden Labs. Seeing the Malden "Channel Grid" user interface in operation within a browser, on a desktop and on a mobile phone is really cool.
The Malden Labs 6thSpace technology leverages JavaFX and the entire Sun software stack to build systems that are "Reasonable, Intelligent, Immersive and Pervasive." It is a great example of how JavaFX provides innovative new ways to connect users to the rich functionality enabled by Sun's software infrastructure products.
I'll write more later about Malden and 6thSpace. Beside being an great showcase for JavaFX, this system is an excellent example of how Identity plays a critical role in personalizing a user's interaction with business systems. Stay tuned.
