I followed the lead of bit.ly and identified a short domain name that would be conducive to tweeting JavaFX app links without requiring URL shortening.

People are fooled by adobe. Speaking about developers, air developers have to install sdk and runtime, separately. It's a little pain.

"b) Java like security. Oh yea they love it ...
About those security warning messages, do you really think Flash would have been so popular if each time a "new-Flash-Application" was encountered on an html page there was a security dialog ?"

Well, flash has not such capability of accessing system resources (files, folders etc.). This is often forgotten. If you look at adobe air, you find out that it's got security dialog and separate runtime too, because it can access system resources. People are fooled by adobe. Speaking about developers, air developers have to install sdk and runtime, separately. It's a little pain.
I agree that even the newest java plugin si bit slow, but it should be resolved with java 7 and it's effort towards modularity.

I'm just bit sad that there are so little pages employing jfx as it's main technology. It'd have been better if jfx kept the capability to fully integrate with html like it was in the beginning. It was really sweet.

My thoughts:
1)I think "The Web" represents 98% or 99% of world application.
Iphone apps and androids or new powerfull trend but too small to think only about those "pure" applications.

2) I think embedded java-or-javaFx application in web page is super. Other platform have made a big hit in this, just look how flash-flexx manage to grow inside the browser.
I mean apllication-inside-web-page is a hit as soon as the application is a bit "too complicated" to bild in AJAX.
So yes symbiosis ajax+application : I agree.

3) Now the sad.
Why is java-or-javaFx-embedded-in-browser a (popular) failure yet ? a) Just look at how slow the jvm start with j2se_6_update_17 [todays latest]
b) Java like security. Oh yea they love it ...
About those security warning messages, do you really think Flash would have been so popular if each time a "new-Flash-Application" was encountered on an html page there was a security dialog ?

- One example illustrate point a and b:
The folowing html page has together, a java-applet and a Flash application.
Guess wich one is java ? ;)
