So I been working on downloading images asynchronously and concurrently. I was planning on using the async javafx package. I made a big assumption before reading the details of how the async package works. I thought I was going to be able to easily run concurrent javafx code. But after reading http://blogs.oracle.com/clarkeman/entry/javafx_async_task I see that the async package was made for running java code.
Is there a way to asynchronously and concurrently load javafx images, e.g. load on separate thread with the ability of main thread to access those images?
