Sun demonstrates its 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 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.
