Rich Internet Experiences, Across All Screens of Your Life - JavaFX

James Gosling started it, Danny Coward is running with it. Danny and the JavaFX team have created a leading-edge software platform for creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) across all screens including browsers, desktops, mobile devices, and TV. Announced for the first time at JavaOne2008, JavaFX has received a huge amount of attention in the developer community, generating much excitement for today's release of JavaFX 1.0. Built entirely in Java with the programming environment based around JavaFX script, JavaFX 1.0 focuses on immersing consumers in rich media layered with graphics, animations, and transitions through the devices they use daily. This type of rich interaction requires technologies that demand this new generation of applications. And JavaFX certainly delivers.
