Update: JavaFX 1.2 and JavaFX 1.3 Runtime Downloads to Remain Available Until End of March 2013
In order to allow specific companies to finalize the migration of their JavaFX Script-based applications to JavaFX 2, the JavaFX 1.2 and 1.3 Runtime products will remain available until the end of March, 2013, unless the server hosting these downloads is affected by a technical issue.

Original JavaFX 1.2 and JavaFX 1.3 EOL Announcement
Back in September 2010, during the JavaOne conference in San Francisco, Oracle announced they were discontinuing the JavaFX Script language. Oracle also committed to expose all the JavaFX functionality through a Java API, starting with the upcoming JavaFX 2.0 release. As promised, the Windows version of JavaFX 2.0 and the Developer Preview for Mac OS X were released in October 2011; a Developer Preview for Linux was added in January 2012.
Today, we are announcing that JavaFX 1.2 and
JavaFX 1.3 will reach end of life (EOL) on December 20, 2012. More specifically, the Oracle server providing
access to the JavaFX Runtime for these versions will no
longer be available after that date.
Because of the specific deployment architecture used for the JavaFX 1.x product line, this means that users of JavaFX 1.2 or 1.3 applications will no longer be able to download the JavaFX Runtime. Therefore, companies and developers who have JavaFX 1.x applications
in use today are strongly encouraged to migrate their applications
to the JavaFX 2, which is currently available on
Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Extensive documentation,
tutorials, and samples are available on the JavaFX
Website, and a growing developer community has started sharing its experience and providing advise on forums,
or social media.
Please refer to the JavaFX website for more information about the current version of JavaFX. You may also discuss specific issues related to this announcement on the JavaFX OTN forum, which we monitor on a regular basis.
