JSR-377, the Desktop|Embedded Application API JSR has as a goal to standardize common behavior shared by many desktop applications. This behavior can also be applied to the emerging Java Embedded and Internet-of-Things applications. Because the JSR targets multiple toolkits (Swing, JavaFX, SWT and more) it’s even possible to build applications targeting the mobile space (JavaFX on mobile). There are a good number of framework and platforms that deliver these features in their own way, and Griffon is one of them. In this talk we’ll discuss the current state of this JSR and explore its features through Griffon’s point-of-view.
