JavaFX on iOS and Android


JavaFX 2.0
This version was released on October 10, 2011. This release introduced: A new set of Java APIs opening JavaFX capabilities to all Java developers, without the need for them to learn a new scripting language. Java FX Script support was dropped permanently.

When I say “JavaFX” I am not referring to the first generation JavaFX that was released in about 2007. That JavaFX was a different beast because it relied on a brand new scripting language called JavaFX Script and basically very few people bothered to learn it. It wasn’t that the language was bad (in fact it had some outstanding features); it’s just that Java programmers wanted to keep programming in Java. And now they can. With the advent of JavaFX 2, the API is just-another-Java-API and the JavaFX functionality can be accessed from any JVM-based language such as Groovy or Scala. This is a *huge* advantage over JavaFX 1 and is the main reason why interest in JavaFX has exploded in the last couple of years.
