My only - so far - customer currently using JavaFX has a strong experience
with Swing and recently also the NetBeans Platform; I've been their
technological consultant for five years and they're pretty used to the
idea of prototype-then-evaluate. I adviced about an incremental migration
path, and they started using some JavaFX features inside Swing. We've just
started the first 100% JavaFX app, which is a prototype that will be
turned into a real app later. There's room for either adopting JDK 8 later
next year, or using again some Swing stuff in case of necessity, even
though I think that it's unlikely.
I think that Daniel's point is important: demos are good, but people would
like to see other people seriously using a technology in production. For
instance, the existence of a large, continuously updated catalog of real
world applications using the NetBeans Platform has been very useful for me
in giving people the final push and convince them that the technology was
viable. So I think Oracle should do the same for JavaFX - (if it doesn't
exist, I'm not aware of it).
