Sun Microsystems this week launched JavaFX Script, a simple scripting language the vendor sees as the glue holding together Internet apps running across a variety of devices.

JavaFX Script applications run on any JavaSE technology-based platform. To extend that user base, Sun this week also introduced JavaFX Mobile, a run-time for mobile handsets, TVs and other embedded applications from automobiles to game systems. The broad user base for Java run-times is a key advantage for getting adoption of JavaFX, Sun said. The scripting environment will also integrate with more full-blown Java components that run on the server or client.

Sun said it will enhance JavaFX with content tools, widgets and other offerings to create a more full-fledged scripting development environment.
