Oh, and since 7u6 with JavaFX 2.2 is available now you could try Canvas:

> One other point: In Java you have to consider GC load. If you're using then dumping images repeatedly, the GC load will be higher than using a single image tile bank, which could potentially kill performance. If you're not allowing anything to be collected then that's pretty much a moot point, but it's still a consideration.
