Today I started playing with my Pi & JavaFX. Even after a few hours I can say that this stuff really rocks!
I created a screensaver as a first demo. The programm loads random pictures (2848 × 4288 pixel) and animates them on the screen:
I used a experimental build of DataFX for loading and scaling all the pictures. In my point of view the performance of all animations is awesome. Oracle has really done a great work!
Next will be a GridFX demo that I currently try to port to JFX8.
