Hi all!

It's great to be here at the ranch.

It's also great to be able to talk about my new book on JavaFX. In my view, JavaFX is one of Java's most exciting new technologies. It was a true joy to write about.

Hello Herbert,

Congratulations on the book release. I'm working in Java for the last 10 years and mostly on JavaEE, Web services, Spring, Hibernate Caching etc. Would like to learn about JavaFX and how it is helping organizations. Pretty sure your book will help me.

Thanks.

Regards,
Siva Krishna.
