    Dear Aim,

    I’m so happy to hear from you again. It’s also good to know you are there for us all. It’s good to know that you have not left Sun/Java despite Sun will not shine anymore.

    God bless you with health and good luck to you and your family.
    All the best,

    Amaury

    Amy,

    I echo the sentiment expressed in the earlier message. From outside, the exodus of sun-folks is disturbing. JavaFX is nowhere near it’s competitors (flash, silverlight, html5 …). Oracle dev-evangelism is also extremely disappointing. We barely hear from evangelists (Ramani ?), architects (Burkey ?) or Product Managers (Jeet ?). So, a humble request is to increase developer-interactions and engagement. Why is it that we don’t hear of any large/complex application within Oracle that has adopted JavaFX ?. It is quite disconcerting. “Oracle Cloud Office”, Netbeans, any-enterprise app amongst the huge set that Oracle has acquired would be a “decent candidate”. If the entire dev process is done in the open, it would do wonders to 3rd party developer’s confidence. It’s true for me for sure.

    Anyway, I hope this makes sense. I hope that you can make some “impact”.

    Love your blogs, screencasts … Admire your motivation and committment for staying with it.

    Cheers …

    I’m far into an exciting startup that uses Javafx. I would love to share more with you.

    Hi Amy,

    Any news from the UI Development world? I see you left Oracle back in 2011. Are you still involved in the Java community?

    Wish you the best in your future endeavors.

    Thanks,
    Jose
