JavaFX Mobile + Malden Labs

JavaFXThis morning, Sun announced the availability of the JavaFX Mobile platform, which "delivers rich content and services across the broadest range of mobile devices – from mass market feature phones to smart phones."

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.

Welcome JavaFX

This morning at 6am PST, Sun officially opened the JavaFX.com website to launch the JavaFX Platform for developing "Rich Internet Experiences for all the screens of your life."

The JavaFX Rich Client platform is "A platform and tools suite that offers distinct advantages to Web developers, Web designers, and Java developers that are building rich, connected experiences. ... JavaFX provides a unified development and deployment model for building rich client applications that integrate rich immersive media such as audio and video, graphics, rich text and web services. JavaFX allows creative developers to program in a visual context thus helping them to bring their ideas to life quicker and better."

The JavaFX SDK and related tools are now available for download from the JavaFX site.

I recommend viewing a short video where Sun VP Eric Klein provides a summary announcement.

In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.
