With Java 8 (JavaFX 8), you now have true 3D Nodes, with camera, texturing, etc... However it would still be very interesting to be able to control the low-level rendering of JavaFX, such as using LWJGL for example. This would allow to render JavaFx content in an external OpenGL context for example.
