I saw the news that JavaFX 1.1 has been released, with support for Mobile applications.

I was able to install it and run it successfully it on OpenSolaris 2008.11, but I had to jump through quite a few hoops to do it.

Here are the instructions for installing on OpenSolaris, for those of you who don't have them:
