Now, I don't want to be rude, but this is supposed to run like Flash right? Then why the hell do I only see screenshots of the mashup application. I can download the sources.. bla bla bla gosh...Even applets worked better. Can't they just launch FX form the applet tag and have the java 6 plugin do some classloader wizardry (connect to SUN load whatever is necessary) and have the applet run JavaFX as a failsafe??
Yes, you can run JavaFX from an applet tag, it's just not done in this article. Point here is to show the code and how to do it, although I could agree that they should have a live demo at the end.
