In previous posts I have attempted to show how RIA’s (Rich Internet Applications) can be used for delivering EPM and BI data to end users. Until now I have focused mostly on Microsoft’s Silverlight and have gotten some grief. Well now I have another option; JavaFX has launched their preview SDK and it is time to see how it compares and what the user experience will be like.
For this test I plan to see If I can create some Essbase ‘gadgets’ that can be used in the browser and then dragged to the desktop (cool feature shown in a JavaFX video). Comment if you have ideas and stay tuned for posts on my progress.
