Flex - anyone using it

 12:27 pm on May 19, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'm curious to know if anyone is using Flex [macromedia.com] to create rich interfaces?

I (personally) do not believe that Flash makes for a good full interface environment, but perhaps Flex addresses the shortcomings Flash has/had in this area....

I did my first flex project a few months ago, too bad i can not show it because it is a pilot, but i can tell you that flex is a great product. But i think you don't understand how flex works, the flexserver GENERATES Flash movies! So everything which is possible in flash, is possible in flex.

Good thing about flex is that you can build amazing applications in a very short time period.

IE, i did build a search frontend with the Amazon Soap service within 15 minutes, and less as 20 lines of code.

Beware of the high license costs, about 20k for a dual cpu. Good thing is that you can download a developer versions that keeps working :)

about 20k for a dual cpu

They care if the machine you put it on is single or dual processor? Isn't that a meaningless metric for licensing cost? ::confused::
