“Supposing is good, but finding out is better.”

Mark Twain

This chapter provides a background discussion of Flex, including what it is, what situations it’s suitable for handling, how it compares to other RIA technologies, and when you should not use it.

If you’re not presently concerned with background information, feel free to jump ahead to Chapter 2, where we introduce you to the Flash Builder IDE and have you import your first project.
