BASIC CONCEPTS: Java FX by Roger Brinkley

JavaFX is the next step in the evolution of Java as a rich client platform and is designed to provide a lightweight, hardware-accelerated Java UI platform for enterprise client applications. The latest release, JavaFX 2.0, represents a significant shift from previous releases. Developers can now create JavaFX applications completely in the Java programming language with a fresh new set of API libraries. There are a number of new features being introduced in JavaFX 2.0 such as Java Swing integration, web content integration, a hardware accelerated graphics pipeline and new UI controls library.
