utility of JavaFX
What is the value proposition, above and beyond what I can do with other desktop technologies, of JavaFX?
In other words, what problem does it solve for me, developer of Rich desktop apps which also sometimes exchange data with remotely located databases on the net?
I am trying to understand what I can now do that I couldn't before. I admit to being, if not a skeptic, at least a little confused and undecided. I am looking to be convinced that it gives me something I don't already have or eases my burden. Looking for frank discussion w/o flame!
