AJAX and RIA Market Is Heating Up: Sun CEO

What you can do with Flash is comparable to Silverlight, and again comparable to JavaFX, says Jonathan Schwartz

"The economy might be cooling down, but the RIA market is definitely heating up," declared Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz recently in his widely-read industry blog. Schwartz was writing as Sun shipped its 100,000,000th JavaFX runtime - a download rate that makes it the fastest growing RIA platform on the market and demonstrating the fastest adoption of any product Sun has ever shipped.

"What you can do with Flash is comparable to Silverlight, and again comparable to JavaFX," Schwartz noted, adding:

"That said, must you use JavaFX or Flash or Silverlight to be a part of the rich internet future? Well, no - Apple used Objective-C for the iPhone, after all, completely discrediting the purist notion that if the app isn't written with a web scripting language, it isn't fashion forward."

Schwartz underlined the happy fact that the 100,000,000 milestone was reached just in time for Sun to announce the second phase of its JavaFX strategy, namely the release of JavaFX Mobile - which it did this week at the Mobile World Congress.

JavaFX Mobile is a runtime identical to JavaFX Desktop, but preconfigured for gizmos with very small memory footprints (like mobile phones).

"With our newest partners, from Sony Ericsson to LG Electronics (and more adding every day)," Schwartz wrote, "this should add a massive breadth of mobile runtimes to the converged JavaFX count - and create even more opportunity for Java developers."
