Java & Rich Internet Applications: Sun Launches JavaFX SDK Preview Release

Software Developer Kit includes runtime and compiler tools

Designed to “deliver content across all the screens of your life,” Sun's rival to Adobe's Flash/Flex - JavaFX - is making available today a preview release of the JavaFX SDK, focusing on the RIA workflow. Sun's aim is to help the world's six million Java developers to create RIAs.

The four screens (PC, mobile, TV and other consumer devices) are where Sun sees RIAs going and it is positioning JavaFX is the rich client platform for creating RIAs with immersive media and content across all four.

The JavaFX Preview SDK provides web scripters and Java developers with the foundation to quickly and easily build high-impact, immersive RIAs that combine 2D and 3D graphics, high fidelity audio and video and animation, all while leveraging the power and functionality of the existing Java Platform.

JavaFX Preview SDK is now available for download for free from http://java.sun.com/javafx/downloads/.

The download includes:

  • The JavaFX compiler and runtime tools, 2D graphics and media libraries necessary to create highly interactive applications for the desktop and browser.
  • Helpful Tutorials, extensive API documentation and code samples
  • NetBeans 6.1 IDE with integrated JavaFX plugin that provides a sophisticated development environment to build, preview and debug JavaFX applications.
  • Project Nile, an easy-to-use plugin that allows exporting graphical assets from Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to JavaFX applications
  • Java Runtime Environment (Java SE 6 Update 10 Beta), featuring a redesigned Java-based browser plugin that allows live, running applets to be dragged out of a web browser and dynamically transformed into a JavaFX application running on the desktop.

This Preview SDK is recommended by Sn for use by early adopters who want to become familiar with the JavaFX application model; it is not yet recommended, the company notes, for commercial application development.

The idea is that the contents of the JavaFX framework will continue to evolve based on internal development schedules and developer feedback. Sun intends to deliver the first version of JavaFX for Desktop in the Fall of 2008 and plans to deliver the first version of JavaFX for Mobile in the Spring of 2009.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
