My thought is that JavaFX is perfect for an IDE targeted to education, like Greenfoot and BlueJ:
SnapCode: SnapCode is the first and only pure JavaFX IDE
YouTube Overview: SnapCode JavaFX Overview
SnapCode has visual code editing ("Snap-coding"), a sprite kit, graphics/sound editing, a runtime browser/player with animated transitions and more. It also has most of the features you expect in a modern IDE. Hopefully this is a great way to attract a new generation of developers and bring JavaFX to all Java developers.
What it doesn't have is very much in the way of resources. If anyone wants to help, let me know. If Oracle would like to kick in an engineer or a few dollars, I wouldn't turn that away either.
We need something like a "JavaFX Playground" before Apple Swift-boat's us. :-)
