I have been a avid reader of for over 2 decades ever since its printed publication was available in old Singapore National Library. I remembered sitting for hours in the air-con reference room every end of the month voraciously browsing and reading through stack of InfoWorld publication. During that time, it was the premier source of information on Information Technology, covering many interesting things like upcoming technologies, information management, software tools and reviews. It is gratifying to find how IT can be made so fascinating and interesting just by the skilful words of InfoWorld editors. I’m glad that to this day that InfoWorld successfully capitalizes on the Internet and continues its tradition of delivering high quality of IT news and reporting to even more readers.

Therefore, it is my honour and gratitude to be asked and quoted on the subject on by Paul Krill , a InfoWorld editor. Like many Java developers, I am currently learning JavaFX and exploring its capabilities. JavaFX, although still yet to be officially released, has captured the interest of many faithful Java developers who like to leverage on existing Java infrastructure and ecosystem to easily create cool and interactive RIA applications that run not only on the desktop and web browser but also on JavaFX-based mobile phone.
You can find the blog of other outstanding developers who are quoted in the article as well.
- Andres Almiray , a experienced Java developer who involves in open source projects.
- James Weaver , author of book , the only JavaFX Script book currently on the market.

An anonymous blogger identified only as “geekycoder” lauded the technology: “Technically, JavaFX enables me to leverage [the] Java skill set and Java technology that I am more comfortable with to deliver a compelling RIA solution. Because synergy between JavaFX and Java is excellent and the fact that JavaFX is built on the Java platform means that I can ensure that I have one of the best and supportive platforms to work in. In addition, JavaFX will enable me to be more productive in making it easier and quicker to create RIA solutions,” for Web 2.0.
“JavaFX Script, the language of JavaFX, doesn’t replace Swing, the core Java GUI toolkit, but provides an alternative way of programming that hopefully will bring Java technology to the masses,” according to geekycoder.
