Sun’s yearly developer conference JavaOne is currently going on and it looks as though some cool stuff is being shown there. I saw a twitter from Dion Almaer (of Ajaxian fame) where he shared a video of a really cool demo .. even though the demo crashed a couple of times … it does tell you a lot about the platform
Things I liked …
- Convert a web app to a desktop app, just by dragging it to the desktop (super cool !!)
- Same code running on browser, desktop and mobile (if you believe the demo :))
- Hardware accelerated 3D
Anyway its great to see how things are shaping up in the RIA world, if you want to learn more about JavaFX head to http://javafx.com or http://openjfx.dev.java.net/. here’s an image that presents a broad picture …
Developer has to write code once. It will be compatible with pc,mobile(different versions,models ,screens), Tvs, consumer electronic devices.
