JavaFX on Android - State of Art

JavaFX Prague Team is very active on JavaFX Mobile development.

After announcement of "Netbeans support for JavaFX on IOS" here is the "How to build OpenJFX on Android

All this stuff is based upon the javafxports project on, probably it isn't "production ready" yet, but it is continuous improved and looks very promising.

The last important fixes have been:
Fixed Multitouch supportFixed issue "dex with too many method references". Text input in TextField and TextArea from native softkeyboard.Improved lifecycle behavior pause, resume, rotation.So the question is:Are we ready to develop a new generation of Android app javaFX-aware? 
As Usual, i'll stay on track ....

NetBeans support for JavaFX for iOS is out!

I while ago i heard about the possibility to build native IOS application using Java

Trying to go in deep of this topic i found out the amazing project:  ROBOVM

I started to test it  developing a Proof of concept  robovm-jsfiddle-javafx-app  available on Github

The amazing thing was the possibility to bring "native javaFx app" to "native IOS app" keeping the L&F

All looked very promising ... but unofficial and not suggested for production mode.

But now i find out an article from Oracle Blog - Netbeans support for JavaFX for IOS is out!  and  ... my thought is :

Are we ready to develop a new generation of IOS app javaFX-aware? 
I'll stay on track ....
