JavaOne Day 0-1: GlassFish, NetBeans, Java FX - Short Summary

  1. Good sessions, no marketing so far.
  2. JavaOne Keynote was surprising (with a "bit" Intel marketing): Glassfish and NetBeans (Roadmaps) were presented by Oracle guys (not former Sun employees). Actually both were covered more intensively, than last year :-)
  3. Java ME and not Java FX Mobile will become the strategic mobile platform
  4. Java FX Script becomes deprecated and Java libraries will be exposed instead - and could be used by Groovy, Scala, Jython, JSR-223 ...and probably by Java FX Script again :-)
  5. StarWars Old Republic is using GlassFish for authentication
  6. There are committed features and roadmaps for NetBeans, Glassfish and OpenJDK
  7. ...and lots of information overflow - as usual :-)

See you tomorrow - for two NetBeans + Glassfish v3 talks!

So, is it valuable to invest on JavaFX script a little more?

Thanks for the news. About point 4, was there some comment on swing/javaFX integration? Anyway, just the exposure as a java API opens that possibility...

absolutely Swing - Java FX compatibility was explicitly mentioned. Sorry - forgot about that...
