Sun promises to target multiple devices with JavaFX. So I can write an app, and deploy it to my desktop, as an embedded applet on a web site, on a mobile phone, or whatever.
How are things like screen size and layout managers going to be handled across all devices? For example, if I build an app that looks good on the desktop at say 800 X 600, it's obviously not going to look the same on my mobile phone. It's one thing to run on multiple platforms/devices, but to look good is completely another.
Is JavaFX going to address any of these kinds of issues, or is this completely out of scope? How do I make my app look good everywhere without writing multiple interfaces?
