Has anyone played around with JavaFX? I just downloaded the NetBeans IDE and Java SDK...I've done absolutely nothing with Java or Swing or any of that, but it seems you can very easily make some pretty simple but addicting games/applications.

For a 3rd year project a friend of mine got blagged into writing some prog in JavaFX to upload files to a server by some lazy professor. Unfortunately he never was much of a programmer. I had a peek at the code and told him its probably easier to do it in java, since thats what i knew. I even offered to write the prog for him, but being the man that he was he just accepted failure and wrote a 10,000 word report about his 60 lines of failed javafx code.

If theres any benefits to it i'd like to hear. Personally the next HLL on my list of things to learn is Lisp, but i doubt I'll be getting the time for it any time soon :(

Isn't JavaFX a library set for Java, to make writing applets attractive again?
