JavaFX 2.0 Beta is available according to blogger Tori Weildt who writes, "this release is the latest development in Oracle’s long-term commitment (roadmap) to making JavaFX a premier rich client platform." According to Weildt, "JavaFX provides a powerful and expressive Java-based UI platform capable of handling large-scale computationally intensive data-driven business applications, Weildt maintains, adding that . JavaFX applications, which are completely developed in Java nonetheless leverage the power of standards-based programming practices and design patterns. JavaFX provides a rich set of UI controls, graphics and media API with high-performance hardware-accelerated graphics, web and media engines to simplify development of immersive visual applications, Weildt adds, noting that developers in JavaFX can preserve existing investments by reusing Java libraries in their JavaFX applications and can even access native system capabilities via the Java native interface, or seamlessly connect to server-based Java EE middleware applications.
