- Any submitted control must be a native JavaFX control (not a native Swing control)
- The control cannot be a reimplementation of an existing JavaFX 1.2 control
- Skin(s) must be available for the control and the control has to be skinnable via CSS
- Only a visual control can be submitted
A competition like this would certainly help with boosting the number of available controls for JavaFX (supplied by Sun and the community). Also it would go a long way towards making JavaFX a more viable technology for building RIA applications (both consumer and enterprise). If you have any further ideas for the proposed competition let me know in the blog comments.
