Recent JavaFX News
By alexismp on Aug 05, 2007
Java FX is making good progress and there is now an Open Source Compiler Project that complements the earlier OpenJFX project. A compiler (into JVM bytecodes) is critical for performance and the project has been mentioned by several people including Josh, Bob, Tom, and Chris.
Perhaps it is time to start considering how GlassFish should support Java FX.
BTW, I thought that the dictum "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission" was a Sun colloquialism, but the Wikipedia attributes it to Grace Hopper.
