Why are all Pro JavaFX examples are webstart applications? Does it mean JavaFX applications cannot be run as an Applet? Do you have some samples in your book that can demonstrate the same?

If I am not wrong, one can launch an applet too via webstart. Webstart is like requesting a .jnlp file when a link to the application is clicked from the webpage. It launches the standalone application instead of a second webpage.

Alfred,

We chose to package most of the samples using Web Start, because in our experience it has the best deployment experience for users regardless of their browser or OS configuration. However, any of the samples can be run via Web Start or as Applets simply by toggling the deployment settings in the supplied Netbeans project and rebuilding.

As an aside, the Mobile examples in Chapter 10 are actually deployed as applets, so if you want to see a JavaFX example running as an applet you can go here:

Every plan is a little cooler if you have a blimp. And a tiny ad.
