JavaFX: it’s JAVA!

with 3 comments

Edit (relevant quote):

When asked why developers and authors would want to choose JavaFX over other tools, such as Flex or Silverlight, Octavian summed it up in one word: Java

Before jumping there, remember: just because you can tell entire corporates that this is the ‘next best thing’, it doesn’t mean people will use it!

Just think ActiveX and their banishment from the Internet..,or, wait, you can think of the water applet!

  1. I don’t get this one. A geek is a geek no matter what. He should be excited about something long before the word enterprise comes in mind.

    What do corporates have to do with right now?

    Hey, I’ve told people at an Adobe FlexCamp that JavaFX has no future. Now, seeing it, and what they’ve put in it, I might just have been wrong. A little bit of RIA stuff with the Java some still love, light, modular JRE, drag outside’o’browser applets… well, Lot’s of geeks gonna tip their fingers in this applet water. :-)

  2. From the bashing p.o.v. clarification:1. I added the relevant quote that started me.

    2. I was thinking how actually programmers push Silverlight ‘because its .NET’ and will push JavaFX ‘because it’s Java’.
    This happened in the past with other technologies (activex and applets) with which corporate intranet sites are now stuck.

  3. We’re still far from that technology that will be programmer-proof. I have our skills of getting companies stuck with apps, no matter the technology. Of course, with a little help from the product management.

    Successful apps are just exceptions that confirm the rule. Software is crap.
