Chapter 1. Flex and AIR: Taking RIAs to the Next Level

Chapter 1. Flex and AIR: Taking RIAs to the Next Level

In this chapter I'll explain a little about creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and desktop applications using Internet technology, where the technology came from and how it is used today. I'll try to provide some basic understanding of Adobe Flex for the novice user. I will also look briefly at how Flash Catalyst changes that workflow and how it can make you more productive when creating Rich Internet Applications. Finally, I'll present a brief overview of some of the technologies that are commonly used for connecting a Flex application to a back end, because I'm going to be using different kinds of back-end technologies in the examples throughout this book.
