Several months ago, there were rumors about Java FX porting to mobile (Android ? iOS ? ) devices, but since then I've never heard updates about this topic.
Has anyone any news ?

And, of course, I beg your pardon if this question is a FAQ..

There was some discussion regarding something called "JavaSE Embedded"; see http://www.coderanch.com/t/605073/ for that. iOS is extremely unlikely, IMO, as it never ran any kind of JVM. And the Android GUI is well-entrenched by now; I don't see any other GUI making a meaningful dent in that, especially as it's not going to be part of stock Android.

Thanks for your reply, Ulf.
I think that's a real pity that a Java Runtime won't be available on smartphones.
