Title: Java Fx
Date: A.D 2009 Jan 30
Its going to be interesting battle between Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and JavaFx from SUN Microsystems. SUN has finally Joined the RIA (Rich Internet Application) battle. JavaFx promises developers and artists to take their creativity to users web browser.
But there is a catch, SUN has released the first SDK 1.0 for Windows and MAC, it has totally eliminated Linux and Solaris! This has really angered Linux users who once stood by SUN. But tit look as though SUN would soon release a Linux SDK soon. Lets wait and see!
At least SUN has much free program than its competitors, its JavaFX SDK is released under GPL (V2 I think) , but its runtime is still propitiatory. The good thing is JavaFx compiles into Jar files which can be inserted into browsers like applets.
