NetBeans helps you get started with JavaFX

I've been waiting since Java One for the release of the JavaFX SDK. This morning, I was finally able to download the bits and to my pleasant surprise the tooling accompanied the release. I installed a distribution of NetBeans 6.1 that includes support for JavaFX script. ~30MB later and a straight forward install I was ready to go. NetBeans bundles a few samples which are useful when you want to learn by modifying someone else's code.


In a nutshell, for a preview the bits fared well and I was able kick the tires of the new language. Of course the availability of the debugging capabilities that I got with NetBeans made my job easier. Developer docs can be found both on the javafx.com site as well on netbeans.org. I am looking forward to the 1.0 release of the SDK later on this year.
