Massive +100 from me on this. 

I've had two projects in the last 3 months that JFX would have been perfect for but ended up having to use standard web (SpringMVC + AJAX) because of the sole reason that I could not guarantee (or even demonstrate) seamless deployment. I've got another one or two coming up in the next month or so that will likely go the same way. I'd trade every other fix and enhancement on the cards for this. 

Losing the same old ground to web for the same reasons. We may have state of the art, laser guided missiles but if they can't get off the launch pad, we'll still lose to sticks and stones. 

There's a timing issue here too. The longer the delay on this the more momentum we lose and the more bad will for the brand. Hard to come back from that - RIP Swing.
