Just back from Java One again

Once again we went to Java One in San Francisco. This year we saw a lot on the new Java release which includes some significant new features and provides some real opportunities to create programs which use the multithreading power of modern machines.

J42™ for Application Framework

Announcement: Commitment to JavaFX

Work has started on providing JavaFX interface for J42™ for Application Access.
We launched the support for Java Swing for J42 for Application Access in August 2005. Following on the success of that launch and the interest it generated we can now announce that we have started work on a JavaFX version of J42 for Application Access.
This will allow our customers to benefit from the latest exciting developments in the Java technology for the desktop.
The benefits that this will bring to your existing legacy applications is only limited by our imaginations.
