JavaFX 2 is the next version of a revolutionary rich client platform for developing immersive desktop applications. One of the new features in JavaFX 2 is a set of pure Java APIs that can be used from any JVM language, opening up tremendous possibilities. This presentation demonstrates the potential of using JavaFX 2 together with alternative languages such as Groovy, Clojure, and Scala. It also will showcase the successor to JavaFX Script, Visage, a DSL with features specifically targeted at helping create clean UIs.
