jaxenter, June 5th 2017

"JavaFX is now part of the Java SE 8 SDK. In this article, Java Champion Johan Vos gives us a quick overview of this essential framework and explains why you should use JavaFX instead of Swing...

The JavaFX framework contains API's that allow developers to create user interfaces using the Java language. The JavaFX packages reside in the javafx namespace, and the framework is part of the Java SE 8 SDK.

JavaFX was announced during the JavaOne conference in 2007. Before JavaFX, the standard API's for creating user interfaces in Java were the AWT and Swing API's.

Java's impending death has been discussed, blogged about and ruminated on for many of its two-plus decades of existence. Yet not only has it persevered, one could say it's thriving. And that's good news for federal agencies.

Agencies often take IT cues from enterprise companies. Java has been used by Twitter developers to rewrite parts of the social media platform because the programming language can provide more throughput. At Google, Java is one of the five main languages that are promoted as a standard internally.
