Everyone (especially in the US) loves a winner and at every Java One you have one product, technology or event that makes the biggest splash. 2007 is shaping up as the year of Java FX. In a nutshell: "JavaFX comprises a comprehensive set of runtime environments, widgets,
development tools, and scripting environments At the 2007 JavaOne
Conference, Sun introduced two products in the JavaFX family: JavaFX
Script and JavaFX Mobile." You owe to yourself to kick the tires on Java FX Script, so here are some pointers to some resources on the web.
- Get started
- Java FX Script Language Reference
- Participate, this is your opportunity to influence a technology that may end up revolutionizing the next 10 year in the area of desktop and mobile development
As far as I am concerned, this year's conference was one of the better ones, that I've attended (since '96). I have not been so excited since 2003 when we previewed Java Studio Creator. One of the cool things about the conference is the social networking aspect. You end up having a beer with entrepreneurs that will become the next Jeff Bezos, renowned technologists and lot's of other folks with who you collaborate during the year, but they always at the end of the phone line or just a name in the CC list.
