I'm new to the JAVA world but it seems like javaFX has a richer UI control option. Can I use that to create an extension? Or am i limited to swing and awt?

    Hi Bob,

    You can certainly use javaFX as it is bundled with Moneydance. We currently only use it for the embedded web view support. I haven't started using javafx at all because I prefer the more native-looking appearance of swing, at least on the mac.
