JavaFX Native Packaging

One of the benefits of native programming languages has been fairly easy deployment and bundling. In many cases static libraries one single EXE. Programming languages that depend on a run-time such as C#, Java, Python, Perl, etc, all require that run-time to be pre installed and the total size (Application + run-time) is typically larger than a native application. Well, I think much of that is over with JDK 7u6 currently in beta. Rich client JavaFX applications can bundle the JRE and your application and provide a very easy installation. So easy in fact it's silly. I love making complicated things super easy! Check out this blog post by one of my colleagues for all the nitty gritty details:
