Future of JavaFX

If it is not a part of OpenJDK/Oracle JDK it will not work. Whether  
Oracle itself maintains the code doesn't really matter I think, but  
they have to put support and development in it.

To me another downside if Oracle would suspend further development is  
that any statements made by Oracle seem to carry not so much value. If  
I'm correct JavaFX was presented by Oracle as the Swing replacement.  
If after a short time they revert from that position, what would that  
mean for any other statement?
