The demand continues to grow for rich interactive content, applications, and services that run on a variety of clients. Rich Applications have achieved a new degree of sophistication with requirements to add multimedia and animation. With the JavaFX SDK and Java SE 6 update 10 it is possible to incorporate innovative elements of rich client applications into existing Java software with minimum effort enabling consistent user experiences on the desktop, mobile devices, TV, and other consumer platforms.
This session provides a glimpse into cross-screen applications development using JavaFX libraries such as vector graphics and animation, and media applications with native audio and video. Additionally, this session will illuminate the JavaFX SDK that provides a suite of tools for web scripters, designers and application developers, namely:
- JavaFX SDK: The JavaFX compiler and runtime tools, 2D Graphics and media libraries to create highly interactive applications for the desktop and browser.
- Netbeans IDE with JavaFX*: A sophisticated development
environment to build, preview, and debug JavaFX applications.
- Project Nile*: A set of plugins for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator that allows exporting graphical assets to JavaFX applications.
- Java Runtime Environment 6 Update 10:* This new version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) provides a redesigned Java browser
plug-in that allows drag and drop of JavaFX applications from thebrowser to the desktop.
In summary, this keynote session will present a brief overview of the JavaFX product family. The remainder of the session will be devoted to creating impressive GUI applications with animation and multimedia capabilities using the JavaFX scripting language.
