Javafx Script

JavaFX Script was a scripting language for creating rich internet applications (RIAs) with 2D and 3D graphics. Part of the JavaFX platform, it simplified development compared to traditional Java programming with its declarative syntax, automatic data binding, and animation support. However, due to changes in the way software is created and utilized on the web, it has been superseded by alternatives; most notably Oracle's shift towards HTML5-based solutions in favor of plug-in based approaches led to decline in support. As a result, JavaFX Script isn't as commonly used today compared to more modern languages and tools that have emerged since its inception.
