Open JavaFX, an alternative to AJAX?

Strange things happen to me all the time.
When I came to the office a few hours ago, I came across JavaFX scripting language while reading random blogs.

I found it pretty interesting and decided to check it out.
So I added the module in my NetBeans IDE and started playing with it. Though I could not fiddle for quite long, I found it pretty good. In fact, it looks to be amazing through the initial glances (though I haven’t done any serious coding in it yet). I have bookmarked some of the pages with a motive to get back to the kid.
However, I must mention that it was pretty slow. I am not sure if office’s system has something to do with it.]

I then resumed my other tasks; little did I know that the language has already created waves.
Slashdot is running an article:
Sun Debuts JavaFX As Alternative To AJAX

That was a real surprise to me. JavaFX was unveiled at JavaOne today. I initially thought that the language has been there for quite sometime and I was stupid enough to have missed it somehow.

Finally, I too hope that it turns out to be an AJAX killer; not just because I have never been a javascript fan, but also because it’ll hopefully reduce the dangers of XSS, which according to Jeremiah Grossman is the next Buffer Overflow (and Javascript, the new ShellCode 🙂 ).

Footnotes: Hopefully, I’ll get some time from my official work to play with JavaFX and update on the same.
…and by the way, if it turns out to be an AJAX killer; will we rename it to AJilla??? [For the uninformed, Mozilla = Mosaic + killer 🙂 ]
