I have been waiting for a statement from Oracle about the future of JavaFx. I personally do not want to invest time and money into a technology that will not advance or even be dropped. Unless there is a clear way to make money from it, I don't see why they will invest money. Does anyone know what Oracle says about their commitment to JavaFx?

I obviously cannot speak for Oracle, but I do know that there are groups in Oracle that are using JavaFX for some pretty cool development projects.

Maybe he was just playing it lip service, but Ellison seemed pretty interested in getting Open Office apps running on JavaFX back in June during Java One. I haven't heard much about that since then, though (not that I would know, anyway).
 
I think I'll just lie down here for a second. And ponder this tiny ad:
