Future of JavaFX

I guess 2009 will be a very important year for JavaFX to get rolling faster. Most important milestones for this year:

  • JavaFX for Solaris and Linux (no news on this since about 2 months on this, link).
  • JavaFX 1.1 with the first version of JavaFX Mobile (planned to be released in February at Mobile World Congress, link)
  • JavaFX 2.0 (at JavaOne 2009?)

You noticed there are hardly (new) books on JavaFX ? I guess publishers want to avoid sitting on books like Silverlight 1.0 which is pretty useless once newer version were released. Some titles are announced for mid year release.

  1. It doesn’t make sense to write a book about JavaFX since Sun keeps changing the language. I bought a book at JavaOne last summer but it was already out of date by the time the preview release came out.

  2. I would say JavaFX 1.5 for JavaONE ’09. And maybe they at least show JavaFX designer tool. Javaposse’s fame Tor Norby is working on it. And JavaFX Script in NetBeans needs far more love then it got. And for books – Pro JavaFX from apress.com is written and being polished, but who knows if it will be relevant in a year? I think JavaFX Script syntax and API, as a released product, should calm down, but it surely won’t as backward compatible as Java is.
