Sun updates JavaFX and Java SE

Sun Microsystems has delivered updates to JavaFX, its platform for rich Internet application development, and to Java Platform Standard Edition. The Sun software, first released in December 2008, is a framework and language. It provides a unified model for developing internet applications running across different types of devices. The platform is integrated with the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), so JavaFX applications will run on any device that already supports Java. Similar offerings from other vendors include Adobe's Flash Player and Microsoft's Silverlight.

Right now, JavaFX is used to build applications for the desktop, Web browsers, mobile phones, TV set-top boxes, gaming consoles and Blu-ray players. Sun plans to tailor it to other devices as well and, at JavaOne, the company demonstrated JavaFX running on a next-generation television.

The new version includes a new cross-platform user interface library, faster start-up for applications and the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) for streaming media support, Sun said.
