JavaFX 2.0, a major update to JavaFX, has been designed from the ground-up to be the next generation UI platform for Java developers. It provides a powerful and expressive Java-based UI platform capable of handling large-scale data-driven business applications.
It offers developers an easy to learn UI platform to create rich Internet
applications and content for desktops and web browsers. Starting with this version,
developers can create JavaFX applications completely in the Java programming
language using standard Java development tools, while leveraging their existing
investments and knowledge in the Java platform.
The documentation set for JavaFX 2.0 contains over 30 new and updated documents, including new coverage
of Drag-and-Drop and the JavaFX Collections API. It also includes a redesigned index page with a new learning trail, and a customized feedback box on each doc. The documentation set is arranged into the following categories: Getting Started; User Interface; Effects, Animation, and Media; Application Logic; Reference; Deployment and More.
