I have developed many client side applications using AWT/Swing/2D for desktop. I have never developed any application for Mobile. With JavaFX I could develop applications using Common Profile APIs and deploy the application in JavaFX Emulator. JavaFX ensures that the same application runs fine on Mobile. But still I was a bit skeptical about this. Its not because I don't trust the mobile engineers, I guess its just human psychology! - Seeing Is Believing. Am I really a mobile application developer?
So I installed a JavaFX mobile runtime (internal build) on my phone and installed various JavaFX samples. Voilà!! I have the samples running perfectly fine the same way as it runs on Emulator!! I took some pictures of them so as to share with all of you.
Now I'm convinced JavaFX Mobile is real and I'm mobile developer! If still not convinced, you will have to wait for official release of runtime so that you can install it on your phone and try it for real!
You may have query regarding details of the phone...
