JavaFX 2.0 With Alternative Languages – Groovy, Clojure, Scala, Fantom, and Visage – Stephen Chin

Stephen showed how to use JavaFX 2.0 with other programming languages like Groovy or Scala. This is possible because the next version of JavaFX has a pure Java API for everything.

It was nice to see how well Groovy and Scala fared versus JavaFX itself. Even a dedicated Xtext-based DSL might not yield much better results.
