I'd have to agree.
Given 90%+ of Java development is server side, with
either thin client (Servlet/JSP/HTML) GUI's or the same,
jazzed up with the RIA mentioned below - AJAX and such,
I would say that *nothing* Sun does in rich client API's will
raise a lot of interest in the developer community - even if
it gives all it promises (and I am still not sure what that is -
the proof would be in the use).

No, I dont think it is aimed at the HTML bound
interface, even those improved with AJAX, but
could be used in an applet (with rich client -
