Hello Guys, I'm new Here!

I like JavaFX! I like JavaSwing!

When I read things like this:

http://www.flex888.com/1262/trend-check-on-flex-silverlight-and-javafx-2009.html

JavaFX? I will quote the same thing I said last year, “The
chart at least confirm my statement regarding writing off JavaFX.” Concidering there are much more Java developers than Flex developer, JavaFX is dead. I believe Oracle will make it official eventually. That’s what people will do when seeing no heart beat for awhile, so as the chart shows.

I feel sad...

I am doing some programs in JavaFX and I am amazed. JavaFX is so easy, so beautiful!

Who more like JavaFX?

Hi William,

I'm not sure you should rely on data comparing these posted on a Flex site.

JavaFX isn't going away. Both Sun (based on engineering resources/presence at JavaOne) and Oracle (statements made at JavaOne) are behind JavaFX and continue to support it.

I think the same!
I wrote some articles for JavaFree.org, one of the most big Java sites in Brazil, and just me post about JavaFX there =[.
I like JavaFX cause is so simple and I think that have a big future!

But I think that JavaFX need more attention, cause we have no books in portuguese, by example.

We have a lot of amazing apps in JavaFX:

And Java programmer that I know don't like JavaFX, cause the sintax is different from Java...

PSC: sorry for my bad english :S
