JavaFX Fail [Dec. 4th, 2008|11:19 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, ]

I go to look at the JavaFX demos. I'm redirected by javafx.com to a URL that contains /mac-player.jsp. Write-once-run-anywhere, my ass. Sun's own URL is calling an end to that lie.



Then, after a long hang, my browser goes white and all the other windows and tabs hang and start spinning rainbow beachballs and I get a trust dialog:



After that Safari hung so hard I hand to force kill it a few times.

Good job.

I still don't know what JavaFX is.

Re: Fixing it

I'm an equal opportunity hater, regardless of company.

In any case, though, this is my personal blog, not that of my employer.

Dude, why the hate. I just got the SDK, it's hella better than whacking javascript. Just hope my employer lets me use it. And no more ridiculous Flash Media Server license.

Re: Fixing it

Hey dude, I tried. It crashed my browser. I'll check back when version 1.1 is ready.
