JavaFX SDK 1.0 : still far behind Cappuccino

Posted: December 5, 2008 in IT/Dev

Sun provides the JavaFX SDK 1.0. Through the presentation we only see strong inspiration from Apple’s CoreAnimation and less ambitious architecture (scripting, rendering engine, media layer) than what Cappuccino can achieve (true Cocoa port to Javascript : evolved scripting that uses Objective-J, AppKit APIs including Quartz, CoreAnimation, drag&drop, undo/redo, views, etc.). Without counting what QuickTime X will add in the media layer area and UI controls for RDA.
Moreover the JavaFX SDK requires a G5 mac (or Intel).
