Java FX 2.0

I’ve recently been able to try out Java FX 2.0 Beta. I’m happy to say that I like that the Java FX Script is gone and now native Java is used. Learning a new scripting language shouldn’t have to be necessary to pick up a new Java technology. They still have the Java FX XML layouts so you can edit view layouts on the fly.

A few things lacking right now:

Mobile support
In browser support – the runtime links are broken on Oracle’s site
Netbeans GUI Builder

I hope the official release comes out soon and supports these things so that Java FX 2.0 can be used in production.
