Some really great news I’ve had to keep under my hat for the past few months is that the Vancouver Olympics website has chosen JavaFX for a really cool visualization. It is an exceptionally well done application with stunning UI and does a terrific job showing off the potential of JavaFX in data visualization scenarios.

Go and check out the application running live. It has data going back many years showing how many metals were won by different countries over time, which athletes won which metals, and so on. It is built and delivered on the publicly shipping release of JavaFX. Really exciting for JavaFX!
