[News] GPL-Licensed RIA Framework is Already Here

Sun Executive Reveals More Open-source Plans for JavaFX

,----[ Quote ]
| Sun's corporate image is grounded in its embrace of open-source software and 
| some components of JavaFX, including the JavaFX compiler and elements of 
| graphic libraries, are now available under the GPLv2 open-source license, 
| according to the official JavaFX FAQ.   


A Word on Linux and Solaris Support



JavaFX SDK preview release imminent

,----[ Quote ]
| Also, Sun's experience with open-source development may prove to be an asset,
| he argued on his blog: "The quicker Sun can go open fully open source with
| their JavaFX stack -- start developing it in the open, letting people use
| nightly builds, and even collaborating in the open, the better positioned
| they'll be to make up for any lateness."


Linux will save JavaFX!

,----[ Quote ]
| I was drawn to a JavaLobby post entitled JavaFX's Killer Feature, because I
| have long wondered what, exactly JavaFX's killer feature could possibly be.
| Well, brace yourself: JavaFX will succeed where others fail because it runs
| on Linux, whereas Adobe is notorious for letting its Linux Flash port (upon
| which Air runs) lag behind.


JavaFX as Rich Internet Application Platform

,----[ Quote ]
| Why free? Because developers don't want to encumber their applications with
| royalty bearing dependencies, or use technologies that predefine where
| consumers might appear. You don't build developer communities around closed
| source, you build user communities - and this is an instance where developer
| selection and adoption will define the broadest RIA marketplace. JavaFX will,
| like all of Sun's software platforms, be made freely available as open
| source, and it'll be released via the GPL (v2) license.
