Sometime back I have requirement to have rich GUI development and then to search for files and upload. I have explored swing and javaFX and I found javaFX can't be used for complex development like this.

Do you think it is as rich as swing...

Aren't they for different target platform??

JavaFX is browser based. Swing needs to run on the client PC

JavaFX applications can run on the desktop as standalone applications, via WebStart, or from a browser as an applet. Also, they will run on mobile devices that support JavaFX Mobile. That's the power of JavaFX. Therefore, JavaFX should be ideal for your GUI application. You should give it a try and judge for yourself.

There is a whole idea of going 'online' and I guess Rich GUI, AJAX apply to them. There was never a shortage of tools to develop rich GUI based standalone client apps.

Heck, Ms does the job in 2 clicks!!

I'm curious, what specific things weren't you able to do with JavaFX?
