This is big news. Quoting an email from the OpenJDK mailing list [via Developpez.com]:

As announced at JavaOne we (Oracle) would love to contribute JavaFX into OpenJDK as a new project called "JFX".

The email also enumerates the feature highlights of JavaFX:

  • Core libraries such as observable collections and binding
  • Scene graph, effects, graphics
  • CSS support for JavaFX
  • Media
  • WebView
  • Prism (hardware accelerated graphics, including openGL and D3D and java2D implementations)
  • Glass (windowing system, base porting layer, including mac, linux, and windows implementations)
  • UI Controls and Charts

JFX being open source will revitalize desktop Java. It completely overhauls Java’s UI layers.
