     Hello Tomasz
     
    The Windows SDK and JRE will only be made available externally as part of a IBM Product package (such as, but not limited to, WebSphere Application Server (or similar IBM product) or the IBM Eclipse SDK)
    Therefore SDK on Windows is not available in this Beta.
     
    As  to your second question I'll find out and clarify.

     JavaFX is not part of Java 8 Standard Edition (which is what the beta is), so no, JavaFX is not included.

    That is strange. Oracle already merged java and javafx and according to their roadmap: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javafx/overview/roadmap-1446331.html javafx will be fully integrated with java 8. Since Swing is a dead project it looks like IBM Java can't be a replacement of Oracle Java on workstations, am I right ?

    I believe that Oracle plan to "co-bundle" JavaFX with their implementation of Java 8 SE.
     
    Note that your link says "Oracle plans to standardize JavaFX, with the goal of having it included in the Java SE 9 umbrella".

     so, until Oracle won't release JSR, JavaFX won't be a part of IBM Java ?
