Yes, apologies for that link, please ignore it, I only read the first part of that article and should have vetted it more closely before relaying.

I am academically curious about the concept of ART though, whether JavaFX works with it and if it is better to use a VM style runtime or AOT style variant when targeting deployment of JavaFX to mobile devices.  I guessing the current JavaFX Android port would just work out of the box with ART because it is targeting the Dalvik runtime and as far as I understand ART will just take the Dalvik bytecode and compile it to the native device code when an app is installed on the device.

That first article was so wrong about nearly everything mentioned in it that it made me want to vomit.
