Sun announces JavaFX at JavaOne 2007

Looking at this post, I totally agree that it remains to be seen whether JavaFX is going to be the winner of the three technologies: Apollo (Flex), Silverlight and JavaFX.
Most promising of it all looks the scripting language (code name was F3).

Here's the homepage of JavaFX btw.

This post is *not* so sure a new language is the way to go. I think an abstraction layer in some form (new language or library/components layer) is definitely needed. Maybe not in this combination as Sun proposes it, but we need more abstraction to be able to build RIAs more easily, less error prone.
