JavaFX is a runtime with supporting tools and technologies that enable content authors and developers to create new content that combines the best capabilities of the existing Java platform with new immersive media services, which can be securely accessed from mobile phones, desktop browsers, TV and other consumer devices. Sun will continue to evolve JavaFX for desktop and browser in future releases of the platform and plans to deliver the first version of JavaFX for Mobile in spring 2009.
