I think it depends on the perspective. Yes, in the comparison after many  
years of Swing there are still missing bits, but I'm already seeing  
production apps, even afre complex and critical ones, happily running in  
JavaFX and JDK 1.8.0. And having the JFX runtime in the JDK 8, while not a  
fundamental point, anyway simplified something. Also, it gave some final  
push to the fact that JFX was _the_ Swing replacement - yes, this a  
political point, but with some impact.
