I've read up a bit on Javafx but it still not clear to me whether this technology will allow *easy* hardware acceleration of graphics within an applet.  Do people know the answer to this?

Despite Flash's advantages in many areas of online casual gaming (especially mochiads etc), I think that hardware acceleration with applets could give them the edge over flash for many types of game.

this is probably what you are looking for:
https://scenegraph-effects.dev.java.net/

this is a sub project of the 2d scenegraph project which provides hardware accelerated effects. Java 6 update 10 enables the direct3d pipeline by default. There was also a general purpose 3d scenegraph announced but I don't know the state of the project.

Both are designed to be easily used from JavaFX script.

Under Linux, Gnash, a Flash interpreter, already uses OpenGL. Don't overestimate the impact of hardware acceleration in JavaFX

If I'm not mistaken Flash 10 (and I believe later versions of 9) uses scalable OpenGL/DirectX  to allow fullscreen and accelerated games to be made.
