I know there is already a question about the performance of Flex, JavaFX, and Silverlight. My question is a bit more broad:
We are evaluating the merits of JavaFX and Silverlight to serve as the GUI technology that controls/configures our back-end service (currently written in Java). The service and GUI are usually on the same machine, but remote management (via browser) must also be supported. We are currently split into 2 teams: one .Net and one Java, although the Java developers also have some .Net experience.
As I see it, the pros & cons are currently the following:
Please let me know if I'm missing anything or mistaken about something, and what else I haven't considered. We also looked at Adobe AIR, but ruled it out because all our developers already have experience in Java and/or .Net.
Please don't start any flame wars here. This is not a religious question, and I really would like some practical advice and facts.
Several thinks about JavaFX.
Your evaluation of JavaFX is kind of wrong.
