JavaOne '08: Sun demos JavaFX platform

Summary: Here's a look at Sun Microsystems’ new JavaFX application, with Flickr and Twitter feeds running in Facebook within the browser, dragged to the desktop, and then put on a mobile phone. Sun Microsystems executives Rich Green and Nandini Ramani showed the JavaFX environment at the JavaOne Conference in San Francisco. The rich Internet application environment is part of Sun's effort to let consumers innovate, and is set to compete with Adobe's AIR and Microsoft's Silverlight.

    While the direction of the Web has been to thin clients, this it THICK. Yes it auto-downloads into either the browser or the desktop. It's not really a Web application. MS Word can run in a browser or the desktop, but it is not a Web application. Same here.

    I would have preferred it to be THIN.
