JavaFX on Swing, Swing in JavaFX

To a large degree JavaFX is designed with a new generation of developers in mind, those with a little more art than science in their backgrounds. More into shifting shapes on screen than polymorphism in code. And they may well be wearing skinny jeans for the first time, unlike the Janitor who was pioneering them in the 1980s.
But for Swing developers who have art and science in equal measure, JavaFX is a great companion to add to the portfolio.
Original team member Amy Fowler blogged recently about how to use JavaFX to make over an existing Swing application.
And with the latest release of the JFXtras, a handy suite of goodies for JavaFX development, comes the new JavaFX wrapper for Swing components, as you can read all about here.
