Absolutely thrilled that we have announced that MLB is using JavaFX
to deliver several fantasy baseball applications for this year's baseball season. JavaFX enabled MLB.com to leverage its existing Java platform experience and skills to create, maintain and support rich client applications. JavaFX
brings control back to development teams by giving them an environment and tools that are familiar and accessible, and reduces the dependency on third-party flash developers. Additionally, by using Java on both the server and the client provides a cleaner, more integrated development architecture that allows developers to be more efficient and create better applications.
MLB.com has always been viewed as a technology leader and innovator and their choice of JavaFX is yet another example of this leadership and we certainly view it as a strong endorsement of the technology. Let's play ball!
