JavaFX was introduced by Sun Microsystems in May 2007 and provides a platform for desktop, mobile, and embedded applications built on Java.
Libraries and software are available for the complete lifecycle of an application to run from a single codebase on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. JavaFX was originally part of the JDK, the Java Development Kit, and became a standalone technology in 2018.
The development is a joint effort between Oracle, Gluon (a small Belgian-based company), and the community.
Let’s talk about the JavaFX framework itself, but also about the libraries and applications that are built with it.
