Sun has released their new JavaFX scripting language they claim will allow “content developers to leverage the enormous popularity of Java to create rich applications and services for deployment on the widest range of platforms – from mobile devices to set-top boxes and Blu-ray DVDs to desktops.”
* Increases developer productivity
* Offers an intuitive language design
* Requires less code
* Enables faster development cycles
* Zero loss of functionality across devices
Sun is continuing their move to open source licensing with their products. OpenJFX is open for business and includes JavaFX Script and JavaFX Mobile, which is a mobile-centric development platform built around Java and Linux and builds on Sun’s IP from their acquisition of SavaJe Technologies.
