Hey all,

I've been reading about this JavaFX platform for "rich-Internet applications(RIAs)." I have no idea what an RIA is, but I read on wikipedia that JavaFX was meant to compete with such platforms as Adobe Flash.

Basically I'm wondering if JavaFX will let me build websites like those fancy ones you see that use Flash?

Examples: Frank Klepacki.com, and the new Star Trek movie website.

Am I correct in thinking Aobe Flash and JavaFX are similar in this way?

Thanks

LC

It is the scripting engine, but yes, it will provide similar functionality to flex.

It will let you build a website that is, in many ways, similar to an off-line application (that is what RIAs are).

Now is it better? I'm not sure.

I really hate flash; however.

Well, I wasn't really comparing them, more like trying to figure out what they are! :D

Oo. Why?

Eh? I just think flash is far too heavy on the cpu for what it does.

Anyway, JavaFX will allow you to create a site similar to the ones you listed, if that is what you want to know.

Interesting.
