let’s see what Wiki says:

Quote

A rich Internet application (RIA) is a Web application that has many of the characteristics of desktop application software, typically delivered by way of a site-specific browser, a browser plug-in, an independent sandbox, extensive use of Javascript, or a virtual machine.

so, in essence, you need all the languages you would need for a modern web application (HTML, CSS, JS) plus what you need to communicate with your platform.

it is, but JavaFX alone won’t make a RIA.

In my views PHP is best language to learn and work on. Why? see below:
1.Open Source, PHP is completely free.
2.PHP can be easily embedded directly into HTML.
3.Platform independent can run on Windows Linux or Mac servers.
4.Run faster on the internet and easily integrate AJAX, Callback etc.
5.Interfaces very easily with Apache/MySQL
6.Lots of good books and on-line help.

1. as are lots of others. (Java­Script, C, C++, Java, Python, ...)
2. it can, but it shouldn’t. just check how many people are having problems exactly because they embed PHP into HTML.
3. that’s also true for most interpreted languages.
4. AJAX is completely unconcerned of the server-side code. whether you request a PHP source or a Java source does not matter the least.
5. like any other programming language that support those APIs
6. unfortunately, there is also a lot of outdated or worse material.

Hii ChrisNt,

Why are you asking for any other language to learn if you know Java??? Java itself is used to create web applications. The only thing you have to do is to give some of your time in HTML/CSS/JS (with little knowledge of XMLS) and that will be enough. Using Servlet and JSP you can create any web application in Java with some attention of web application structuring to be followed.
