Evaluating any new technology can be a
challenge. This Short Cut is designed to
help web application developers (and
their team managers) understand if Flex
is the right technology for their company
or client. Although the authors of this
book have a strong understanding of the
Flex framework, this isn't a sales pitch
for Flex. The authors believe that Flex is
a good tool to solve many business problems,
but it is not a cure-all.
After reading this material, you'll know
what's good about Rich Internet Applications.
You'll know the capabilities of
Flex 2, how Flex works, and how much
it costs. We'll tell you about the challenges
you'll face in developing with Flex,
and show you the steps you'll take to create
and deploy a Flex 2 application.
