JavaFX is Oracle's latest GUI library. It allows styling controls via 
CSS (styling was very difficult to do well with Swing, its predecessor).
JavaFX is available as part of the standard library since Java 8.

So yes you'll need to have Java installed to run that thing.
You don't have to know much about Java itself, deployment may be 
complicated though (depends on what the Eta guys did in that area).
