The First Glance
WOW!! After viewing the sample application on Adobe site one has to be get impressed by the power and magic of it. This sample app gives you an idea what you and your users can have with Flex.
So is it all about Visuals?
RIA (Rich Internet Applications) doesn’t mean only visually rich but also flourishing from the application architecture point of view. In Flex world everything is arranged and placed together so you have to look-after less number of things but you get better results not only visually but also form architectural point of view.
So should you really opt for it? It depends upon the application requirements and the complexity of the user interface. Just don’t use it because every one in the town is talking about it. There are many things you can do using AJAX but can’t do with FLEX but its vicevarsa is not quite true.
