Hello, I'm starting to learn Javafx, and I have noticed that a javafx app can be run in a browser, also as desktop app, so I was wondering if JSP and other Java client technologies will disappear because of Javafx.

Thanks in advance.

JSP is a server-side technology. What other client technologies are you referring to?

Do you really think that a niche technology such as JavaFX -- that most people consider DOA in the first place -- is going to have any impact at all on the use of HTML for web applications?

Answer: no measurable impact whatsoever.

And as Tim pointed out, JSP is not a client technology. So what are you really asking about? Applets?

Thanks for the answers. What I meant by client thecnologies was Java technologies that are used to build form views, in other words, technologies to build the end user interfaces.

So, the way a I see it, you can build a Javafx app and run it in a browser and in a desktop, so you are able to build a client that can be run in different enviroments. It is like code once, run anywhere.

It is like building a Swing app that can be run in a browser without any changes. That is the beauty of Javafx.

That's what applets let you do back in 1998. It didn't exactly succeed, did it?

Well, it did not succed it. So, you don't give Javafx too much future?

Nope. The world is not looking for another desktop technology.

JavaFX is now, and will continue to be, a niche technology. Just like Applets.

That is the beauty of Javafx.


The "beauty" you seem to admire is something only the developers creating the app would appreciate.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
