JFX build and deployment - squeaking wheel

As for the applets and the jnlp part (specially applets) I already brought
up this subject more than once but either didn't got a response, or got
just some general pointers but no concrete plans for release.

I think as for offline desktop deployment things are currently handled well.

On the other hand applets are seriously crippled. I personally think that
this is a really good area where Java could excel and consequently draw in
a big percentage of developers. Flash is dying and developers are getting
aware that HTML5 isn't what it was promised to be, so there is really no
good technology for creating feature rich web apps. Sure you can use HTML5
to create nice looking document based web apps but not more than that, at
least not currently.

I just wish I could deploy my apps with this beautifully crafted JavaFX
controls through the web seamlessly and painlessly (just like flash does
it) :-)

Thanks, best regards,

Pedro Duque Vieira
