What is JavaFX?
JavaFX is the latest GUI toolkit for Java. It will allows users to develop more sophisticated UI applications (either totally in JavaFX or with Swing). We anticipate that Java developers will use JavaFX for new projects and integrate with Swing for existing applications. The advantages of using JavaFX are:
- 1. Simpler than Swing.
- 2 Allow feature rich applications.
- 3. Run on platforms which do not support Swing.
- 4. Active development and support from Oracle.
