Hi All,

I am new to JavaFX and do not know much of its usage. Actually I am looking for some technology in which I can create flash like effects (to some extent, powerpoint slide effects) in web page. From net, I have come to known that JavaFX is replacement for Flash and other animation technologies.

I want to know is it possible to use the javafx in web page. So that I will create javafx script dynamically and that script will run on html webpage in browser.

Please let me know that. If it is possible, can you point me to some demo. I have searched google, but could not find anything useful.

Thanks in advance,

If you want "Flash-like effects" in the web browser, why not use Flex ( or OpenLaszlo ( They both compile into Flash (swf) format and integrate well with JEE back-ends.

Using JavaFX with applets seems to be the currently supported method of using JavaFX in a web browser. See James Weaver's entries on this ( and There is a closely related thread to your question at
