I do hope to make it "Source Available" via a project you can check out from Java Inventor. Though, like Oracle, I need to get corporate customers to fund development in some manner, so I need to figure out how to do it while protecting it.
One of the cute features of Java Inventor is that with just a hyperlink you can launch Javi via JWS opened to a local copy of any published app, which offers a lot of possibilities for code sharing, collaboration and support. Javi is currently less than 2mb, packed.

>> I'm working on a consumer friendly IDE and application framework for Java and JavaFX that I hope people on this list will keep their eye on. It is intended to be comprehensive and mainstream, free and initially targeted at education. Kind of FileMaker meets Eclipse/NetBeans, with iTunes elegance and sensibility, and some InterfaceBuilder, InDesign, Flash Designer, Flash-Player/Acrobat-Reader, ORM, Crystal Reports and Cloud computing thrown in.
>> It has a page based application player for desktop (JWS) and browser apps with page navigation, refresh and animated transitions (even the IDE is build on it), a Java source editor and rund/debug environment, a graphical UI, page and report builder (supporting JavaFX, Swing and Java2D - supporting vector graphics, animation, image effects, etc.), a graphical data table builder (with graphical data entry, data binding, an ORM system, a JSON remoting layer with adapters to save to Files, Google App Engine, JDBC and FTP), and remote repository synchronization to publish your app on the internet with 1 click.
