@jose You won't have any chance with browser gaming either. The current
applet situation is non-functional, you can't get an applet
working reliably across different browsers.

Deployment is the major issue with JavaFX. No web apps and no mobile apps
are currently possible, I'm sorry to say that I don't think JavaFX will
become the RIA platform of choice in this scenario, not even close really.

Thanks, best regards,
