JavaFX applications are completely developed in Java while leveraging the power of standards-based programming practices and design patterns. JavaFX provides a rich set of UI controls, graphics and media API with high-performance hardware-accelerated graphics, web and media engines to simplify development of immersive visual applications. JavaFX developers can preserve existing investments by reusing Java libraries in their JavaFX applications. They can even access native system capabilities via the Java native interface, or seamlessly connect to server-based Java EE middleware applications.
