could this possibly replace AJAX? how well would it be implemented with RoR/

Re: thoughts on JavaFX ?

I can't imagine it replacing AJAX anytime soon. First it will be a while before it is supported in all the major browsers (if ever), then most sites will need to wait much longer to keep things backwards compatible. It's interesting though, and worth keeping an eye on.

To me it looks more like it's creeping into Flash's space than AJAX.

the demo looks so damn cool! and ur right, it feels more like Flash's turf.
