I decided to give it a go at testing Javafx on an android device. My Android device might be considered a low end device, it’s a Nexus 4 from LG. The result can be seen below in a video. The quality of the video isn’t the best, I had to scale down the quality because the video was occupying 2GB.

My conclusion is that Java/Javafx runs with a very good performance in a low end Android device with a pretty decent start up time. There were just 2 problems with this test, the first was with a demo which tested multi touch but didn’t run with top notch responsiveness but that might be the demos fault and not an issue with Javafx itself. The second problem were dialogues: they aren’t showing up well.

The demo took about 6 seconds to start, which is more than the standard android app but not too much.

And on to the video:

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
