Following last year's JavaFX 1.2 and 1.3 End of Life announcement, we decided to postpone the decommission of Oracle's JavaFX 1.x download infrastructure by a few months to allow a handful of companies to finish migrating their applications to JavaFX 2.x. This was the case of SmartBear Software, who have released a new version of loadUI at the end of March.
However, we are still aware of a number of companies and individual developers who didn't have the resources to port their applications to the most recent version of JavaFX, or at least not by the time the EOL would take effect. We've then decided to put together a workaround that would allow third parties to redistribute the JavaFX 1.3.1 Runtime with their applications. This solution is available today, and in order to provide a transition period during which developer's can implement it, we have decided to postpone the EOL by a couple of more months. As you can see from the redistribution instructions, this is a relatively easy workaround to implement. What was more complex and time consuming was to update the license to allow for redistribution of JavaFX 1.3.1.
license (provides the rights to redistribute the JavaFX
1.3.1 Runtime with your application)
- Redistribution instructions
- Updated JavaFX 1.3.1 SDK download (includes some minor security fixes and deployment changes)
