Personally after seeing the advantage of JavaFX (little improvement in performance and coding style), i don't feel much interesting area in this.

As a web developer most of our UI will be based on the AJAX, and i believe the usage of Applets (in future JavaFX) is very minimal.

Do JavaFX will add value to the Java Web Developers .. or it is more focused for the standalone java developments

Please correct me if i was wrong

I think that the way to look at it is that it presents an advantage to allowing folks who aren't accomplished Java programmers to have some easier method for getting up to speed on building UIs. I've seen some fairly snazzy programs in JavaFX with complicated functionality (the presentation at JavaOne last year, with a PDF reader done entirely in FX comes to mind), but I think its strength comes from the ability to let someone more familiar with scripting (rather than all-out Java coding) get up to speed with the graphical aspects.

Well said, Theodore! Also, tools are coming that will make it easy for graphic designers and developers to collaborate on graphically stunning, fully-featured, applications.
