JavaFX Preview SDK - "Experts" Q&A

During the week of August 18, 2008, we encouraged you to "Ask the Experts" your questions about the recent JavaFX Preview SDK release. In this session, our experts were Joshua Marinacci, Martin Brehovsky, and Lawrence McDonough of the JavaFX engineering team.

Hello Rajan,
If you want to learn Java, I would recommend our New to Java Programming Center, at <http://java.sun.com/new2java/>. Because you are a Delphi expert, you could start with this tutorial <http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/new_tech/> and then choose among the options it links to. The Java Concepts map is also useful, if you want a visual overview, at <http://java.sun.com/new2java/javamap/intro.html>.
