JavaFX beats Swing: Changing RIA development platform

Date: Oct 30, 2013

After years of using Swing for developing creating and delivering rich internet applications (RIAs), transportation company Lynden Inc. moved to a new platform, JavaFX. The change agent was Rob Terpilowski, Lynden applications architect, who chose JavaFX for its more advanced graphical user interface tools. In this SearchSOA video interview, Terpilowski described the selection process and the challenges, including a steep learning curve that came up during the Swing-to-Java migration. Terpilowski spoke about the pros and cons of JavaFX in a session at JavaOne 2013 in San Francisco.
