Why use Flex?
Applications developed using Flex ensure rich user experience through intuitive interaction with the application and presenting information in a visually rich interface. The end compiled output is Flash which is the most ubiquitous client software worldwide.
Flex allows development of applications that support complex business logic to run at the browser, rendering a feeling of “quick response” and no refresh.
The highly evolved client environment of Flex allows the applications to process large amount of information at client-end without any noticeable change in performance of the applications. This is in contrast to conventional DHTML applications which routinely crash if the record set is scaled up.
Flex enables advanced interactivity between client and server allowing high performance data transmission. This makes Flex an ideal RIA framework for enterprise applications.
Flex supports diverse modes of presenting data with an integrated development model for complete customization and control. Applications developed with are highly customizable and make the most of Flex to deliver complex customers needs.
Flex brings innovation in a common development and design model. Flash is no more a “designers only” tool.
Flex offers a strong development model that combines ActionScript and MXML.
How Flex Works?
Flex IDE is developed on Eclipse and can be used as a stand-alone Integrated Development Environment. Flex IDE offers powerful features that include rich editors, a versatile debugger and in-built objects.
