Creating Rich Internet Applications With Compiled JavaFX Script Technology
Source: Sun Microsystems
The JavaFX family of technologies currently contains two products: the JavaFX Script and the JavaFX Mobile platforms. The latter is a platform for mobile phones and other mobile devices. The focus of this series of papers is the JavaFX Script programming language, a simple and elegant scripting language that leverages the power of the Java platform. More specifically, these papers cover compiled JavaFX Script, which is well along the way in the development cycle. One may already know that there is an interpreted version of JavaFX Script, which essentially served as a prototype for the compiled version. JavaFX Script is statically typed and fully object oriented. As one will see, JavaFX Script makes it easy to develop rich and responsive Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs).
