Java Posse, this week

I love this week's Java Posse (#231) The Java Posse

There's a nice discussion about the mobile space: how it'd be nice to have JavaFX for UI stuff on Android. As they've noticed, JavaFX is not a complete stack, it doesn't want to compete against the numerous existing OSs for the mobile. But instead, it sits only at the application level.
That's a departure from the original project, Savaje.
Also, Android's declerative UI is not well suited for animations or games so there JavaFX would make sense.
Very funny the story at the end of a child being named after Martin Odersky, the creator of Scala.
