One big announcement at JavaOne today is an open sourced Java
scripting language (based on F3) that will allow end-to-end GUI
development for content developers. The mobile version of this is
designed to run on Java ME on Linux OS mobile devices.

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/news_press_release,102324.shtml

Based on F3, here are some demos:

Btw, some interesting stats on the ubiquity and popularity of Java:
http://weblogs.java.net/blog/arungu...ne_2007_da.html

6 MILLION developers

5.5 BILLION devices (WOWZA!!!!!!)

800 M desktops (boooo!!!)

1.8 BILLION phones

11M televisions (these must be the TIVos and Cable set top boxes)

Not to mention (maybe) 6 million PS3 and other Blu-ray players this
year ;-)

And I guess eBay's Java EE system is now beat by the NASDFAQ:

"Anna Wing, CIO of NASDAQ shared that NASDAQ processes 150,378
transactions per second (tps), 400 million tps/day, their system
running on Java is considered the fastest in industry. They are
working on the next generation of their platform using Real-Time Java
to make this happen because of improved memory management, ease of
migration and ability to react to unexpected events with
predictability."

Looking at some of the tutorials I was a little shocked: JavaFX is
simply....wel, Java. Only the syntax is changed from procedural to
declarative. I don't really see what the big deal is about? Sun would have
been better off promoting Java instead of spending money on JavaFX. Or they
could have added some new API's to make it easier to do Flash-like things in
Java.

Old wine in new flasks...

Wasn't there a Flash FX when it was in Macromedia's 'hands'? Either way, as
Technocrat says, it's binary.
