Welcome to JavaFX 9 by Example. What is JavaFX? JavaFX is Java’s next-generation graphical user interface (GUI) toolkit that allows developers to rapidly build rich cross-platform applications. Built from the ground up, JavaFX takes advantage of modern GPUs through hardware-accelerated graphics while providing well-designed programming interfaces enabling developers to combine graphics, animation, and UI controls. The new JavaFX 9 is a pure Java language application programming interface (API). The goal of JavaFX is to be used across many types of devices, such as embedded devices, smartphones, TVs, tablet computers, and desktops.
Nandini Ramani, former VP of Development at Oracle, plainly states the intended direction of JavaFX as
a platform in the following excerpt from the screencast Introducing JavaFX:
The industry is moving toward multi-core/multi-threading platforms with GPUs. JavaFX leverages these attributes to improve execution efficiency and UI design flexibility. Our initial goal is to give architects and developers of enterprise applications a set of tools and APIs to help them build better data-driven business applications.
—Nandini Ramani, former Oracle Corp. VP of Development, Java Client Platform
