Based on Java, a modern Object Oriented programming language, JavaFX is an RIA platform for the UI development of enterprise business applications. The architecture of JavaFX has two main components: JavaFX API and Scene Builder. The latter is the starting point for building JavaFX applications in the current development. JavaFX Scene Builder is a visual environment that allows rapid UI design for JavaFX applications, without requiring code writing. UI designers, the main audience target of the presentation, are able to use Scene Builder to prototype a UI layout, preview the design, as well as to define the look-and-feel. JavaFX Scene Builder is a visual environment that allows rapid UI design for JavaFX applications, without requiring code writing. The key features of Scene Builder are ability to provide controls, layout containers, images and media in a standalone development tool, definition of a


interface able to accessing the JavaFX UI control library by using events and properties, automatic generation of XML-type code, and live editing and preview.
