Petition to Open Source JavaFX

Stephen Chin has posted an online petition calling for Oracle to open source JavaFX.

The petition refers to open sourcing JavaFX as “an essential part of the future success of the platform,” claiming that fear of vendor lock-in and the maturity of the platform, are currently hindering JavaFX adoption.

“We recognize that Oracle Corporation has made a significant investment in JavaFX technology, and continues to grow and extend the platform. We encourage Oracle to continue their investment in the JavaFX platform, including monetization of the platform through training, support, and other professional services. In our estimation, the increased adoption of JavaFX will make the platform even more profitable for Oracle that it currently is as a proprietary technology,” reads the petition.
