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.
Adding extra functionality to our Swing Viewer (ie PageFlow mode).
A pure JavaFX PDF viewer
We will be making available an FX viewer with as much as possible the same features and API as the current Swing Viewer making it very each to switch if and when customers choose.
