End users always look for an exciting and
dynamic content on the web and expect a better
interactive experience with web services. JavaFX
helps in delivering visually compelling
applications, such as maps and mashups, video,
audio, and pictures, that is standardize across
cell phones, TVs, and more.
Reduced Integration Costs with Expanded
Implementation of the majority
of the solution in Java, including middleware
and resident applications, JavaFX Mobile reduces
integration costs, improves device software
consistency, and enables device manufactures
to provide new offerings with substantially faster
JavaFX Mobile Architecture:
JavaFX Mobile streamlines the environment
and reduces reliance on underlying technologies
by providing a complete middleware and
application stack implemented in Java.
II. JavaFX Scripting Language
JavaFX Script is specifically designed to
optimize the creative process of building rich
and compelling UIs leveraging Java Swing, Java
2D and Java 3D for developers and content
In layman style - JavaFX lets you enjoy a
consistence user experience irrespective of
whatever device you are currently online with,
whether you are sitting in front of your desktop,
whiling away commuting time with your PDAs,
or relaxing at home.
JavaFX Script is a highly productive scripting
language for content developers to create rich
media and interactive content for deployment
on Java environments. Since JavaFX Script is
statically typed, it has the same code
structuring, reuse, and encapsulation features
that make it possible to create and maintain
very large programs using Java technology. It
gives Java developers the power to quickly
create content-rich applications for the widest
variety of clients, including mobile devices, settop
boxes, desktops, even Blu-ray discs.
Content creators now have a simple way to
develop content for any Java Powered consumer
With JavaFX, the start-ups, enterprises and
developers are free from issues like local
installation and performance degradation, they
can now quickly develop and deploy new secure
services for a variety of clients. This is going to
simplify the development of RIAs running across
a range of platforms.
JavaFX technologies being built around open
standards, offer consistency for apps and
services across different platforms.
Applications written with JavaFX Script have
WORA (write-once-run-anywhere) features and
application security support with enterprise
JavaFX Script is easier to understand and
maintain, above all the structure of the written
code closely matches the actual layout of the
GUI. JavaFX Script enables rapid development
of rich 2D interfaces in an easy fashion.
JavaFX Script offers an advantage of the Java
security model so that the consumers can have
a secure access to the assets (e.g., pictures,
music files, word documents) on their desktop.
The write once, run anywhere portability of Java
technology has helped to make it the world’s
most widely deployed application platform.
JavaFX Script is going to work with all
major IDEs, including NetBeans.
JavaFX Script is capable of supporting
GUIs of any size or complexity
JavaFX Script makes it easier to use
Swing, one of the best GUI development
toolkits of its kind.
JavaFX Script uses a declarative syntax
for specifying GUI components, so a
developer’s code closely matches the
actual layout of the GUI.
Through declarative data-binding and
incremental evaluation, JavaFX Script
enables developers to easily create and
configure individual components by
automatically synchronizing application
data and GUI components.
