Apparently, the Oracle from the Support for JavaFX back a Roadmapt for the technology under wraps Oracle in Silence.
For the audio slideshow of the signs that JavaFX has no great future in the case of Oracle are on the increase. The Support for the Version 8u33 of JavaFX on ARM Embedded Platform has been set. In addition, Oracle has completed the official Download of the JavaFX Scene Builder. Also on the Roadmap of JavaFX is not known.
The user Association audio slideshow requires Oracle more clarity about the future of JavaFX. The Association warns that JavaFX was set in the Version 8u33 for the Embedded Platform. The website with the Roadmap was “for months” to reach, is the official Download for the JavaFX Scene Builder, I have completed Oracle also. The user Association audio slideshow concludes from these facts that Oracle could benefit from the development of JavaFX back.
JavaFX is part of the Java SE. The runtime environment is intended to facilitate Rich Internet Applications and is a competitor to Silverlight from Microsoft, and Adobe Flash. On the basis of HTML5, Microsoft and Adobe on back propagated in these technologies. Therefore, Oracle could dare to take a similar step.
The consequence of this uncertainty is that many developers are clear about whether they will use for other projects on JavaFX. In the Java Community will also no longer regrets the fact that JavaFX support for the ARM Embedded platform, because this is one of the most common microprocessors, and thus could be, for example, touch screens, supports the well. Oracle will now have to the audio slideshow explains that there are now too many Devices and not all could be supported.
Similarly, the Community is disappointed, even in the case of the Scene Builder, many developers have been waiting for their surfaces. Here is an Alternative would be ready after all, with a Gluon.
“In the past few years, Oracle has communicated clearly that you want in the Embedded environment with Java points,” commented Tobias Frech, chief Executive of the audio slideshow. “The question now is whether the discontinuation of JavaFX on ARM Embedded Platform is the result of other policy Changes in Oracle with respect to Java, of course.”
An open letter to Oracle users ‘ Association had communicated their concerns. Oracle the following answer deck now:
Thanks for your letter. We answered the ARM specific questions in January 2015, details see here. We recommend those who are interested in JavaFX ports to participate in the OpenJFX project. A prime example of this working as intended can be found here. We are also aware of some groups interested in building their own variants, which are still in the early stages, but you can see one here. We also have commercial partners who are capable and willing to support JavaFX ports as needed, we’d be happy to make introductions. Our strategy for scene Builder is for it to be integrated into tools and other development frameworks, and thus it was released under a BSD license. An example of that working as intended can be found here.
Regarding the roadmap, as of 7u6 JavaFX is included in the Oracle JDK. You can find out what items are targeted for JDK 9, via the targeted JEPs listed here.
We continue to recommend JavaFX for application developers building rich clients, see here. As of 8u40, JavaFX added support for assistive technologies, making it therefore the recommended UI framework for accessibility applications.
