JavaFX 2 is the future of RIA development. It takes the power of a modern scene graph, adds rich animation and multimedia capabilities, and extends to the web and beyond with seamless portability. At the same time, it leverages the power and breadth of the Java language and platform, allowing full access to existing Java libraries and integration with Java client technologies like Swing.

This session will introduce you to the JavaFX 2 platform from the perspective of a seasoned Java developer. The breadth of JavaFX APIs will be explained through several examples that we will build out during the course of the session.

If you have heard about JavaFX before, but were not sure about taking the plunge, now is the time to see what you have been missing out on.
