Larry Ellison at JavaOne 2009

Larry Ellison spoke at JavaOne 2009, and a video replay is embedded below. If you can get by the jokes, you'll hear that Oracle is excited about JavaFX and the possibility of NetBooks.

Comments:

Use Adobe Flex! Forget about JavaFX. Idiots...

No thanks Frank. Get some manners and a brain.While choice exists we'll combine the best server-side language with the oracle database ...add a new jvm and a slick client-side to it and you have the future all wrapped up...

While Frank did call us idiots.. He brings up a good point. Adobe's Flex looks good and its going to suck up the market share for a while, BUT flex does have a limited scope. JavaFX has a very wide scope.

With the advent of netBooks and technologies like Google's new ChromeOS, there could be a surge in demand for more robust, capable languages that provide on-the-fly internet applications capable of generating nice UI...

Since Javafx stands on Java's unbeatable infrastructure, it has the potential to be very successful. Portability *WILL* be the future. I just hope its not too late!
