JAX TV interview

How JavaFX will outlive HTML5 and co.

Coman Hamilton

At a crowded JAX 2015 conference in Mainz, Germany, JavaFX pro Adam Bien explained why JavaFX is future-proof, why it’s better than HTML5 and what else is happening in the world of JavaFX in 2015.

“Future-proof and productive” is how Java Champion Adam Bien describes JavaFX. Hiding behind the hype of HTML5, AngularJS and Node.js, JavaFX is a technology that won’t be making any sudden “improvements” that require major changes and make life difficult for enterprises, says the JAX 2015 speaker.

How does he know? Bien is a software architect, developer, consultant and author who has been working with Java SE and EE since the beginning (JDK 1.0, Java Web Server). He implements Java technology in large scale IT projects and is pretty darn good at it.

So good, in fact, that Oracle named him Java Developer of the Year in 2010, on top of being a Netbeans Dream Team Founding Member and Oracle ACE Director. He also participates in the JCP as an Expert Group member for Java EE 6 and 7, EJB 3.X, JAX-RS, CDI and JPA 2.X JSRs.
