JavaFX is in full (javax.)swing

I don't know why I haven't mentioned this before, but, I have recently been involved with the JavaFX project here at Sun. It all started at JavaOne when I was afforded the opportunity to support the JavaFX project. Since then, I have been helping to ensure quality of the NetBeans plugins as well as quality of the repository. JavaFX is a family of products: JavaFX Script and JavaFX Mobile. JavaFX Script is a a highly productive scripting language for content developers to create rich media and content for deployment on Java technology. JavaFX Mobile is a complete mobile operating and application environment built around Java and Linux open source technologies. More information on JavaFX Script is available at www.sun.com/javafx. JavaFX script is built using Java and can use any existing Java libraries such as Java 2D and Swing but it makes it much easier to use these libraries. Check out the samples available on the JavaFX site and start contributing today. It is an open project from inception so I'm sure progress and innovation will move quickly.

I remember a few years ago I played around with thinlets and, as far as I've seen, it's pretty much the same thing ...maybe I'm wrong. Could you (Tony) or someone explain what's the big deal about JavaFX?

Regarding questions of this nature, I can only direct you to openjfx.dev.java.net and Chris Oliver's Blog.
