At the JavaOne keynote this morning, James Gosling and Jonathan Schwartz gave a demo of the new Java App store in front of 20,000 Java developers. The Java App store is new online store for Java apps. It’s just like the iPhone App store for Java. Oh .. and it has about a billion potential shoppers. One of the very first apps in the store (and as far as I can tell, the only music app) is an application called Music Explorer FX. This is a soon to be released Java FX application designed to help you explore the world of music. I’ve had the opportunity to play with the Music Explorer – it is really quite cool. (and it makes heavy use of the Echo Nest API, which makes it doubly cool). The developer of the application, Sten Anderson has written a teaser about the app on his blog. As he says, stay tuned for to find out when the app will be available.
