Project Proposal: JFX

Ok thanks for clarifying. So OpenJDK is made up of multiple projects. One of those is JDK 7 for example, or JDK 8. These projects form the RI. In addition you have projects like VisualVM which are not themselves part of the standard, yet are part of OpenJDK. Then there are other projects like Coin and Lambda which are part of OpenJDK, and also have associated JSR's from which some, or all, of their code will be "promoted" into the core JDK through the JCP process. We hope JavaFX will be like one of these. As I mentioned in my initial post, we hope to have a JSR for JavaFX in the Java 9 timeframe. In other words, we want to incubate JavaFX in OpenJDK precisely because we would like to see it become part of the standard. Of course we cannot unilaterally make those sorts of decisions, it depends on the JCP and the community as to whether they want JavaFX to be standardized, but that is certainly our hope.
In the meantime, this does not dilute the role of OpenJDK as the RI for the Java platform.
