In this interview with Artima, James Ward, Adobe's Flex and Apollo evangelist, shares Adobe's response to JavaFX, and highlights some similarities and differences between Flex and JavaFX:

Do you think client-side Java would gain if Adobe and Sun decided to work closely together and turn the Flash virtual machine into a Java virtual machine as well?

Slightly OT: is Apollo evangelist a job description in the US? Not everything translates easily across cultural contexts.

Heh, it's a job description at Adobe (if that).

Now that is just mean. ;)

I get to teach people about Flex and AIR (new name for Apollo) but I don't have to sell anything. :)

with all respect to the review I have to admit that it is somewhat onesided, why dont you say anything about Flex being singlethreaded vs javaFX being multithreaded ?
that is huge difference you can run multithreaded tasks in javaFX as far as I know, so far javaFX is the only one supporting it.

If you want information about useful features in JavaFX, then an Adobe employee is probably the wrong person to ask.

(Incidentally, does anyone know how to get JavaFX onto eclipse via a manual download? Unfortunately, the firewalls I'm behind prevent the "Feature Updates" feature from working. I've done a Google search but drawn a blank, so far.
