Flex encompasses both a standards-based programming model that will be familiar to professional developers and a set of products designed to enable efficient delivery of high-performance RIAs. RIAs combine the responsiveness and richness of desktop software with the broad reach of web applications to deliver a more effective user experience. Flex applications take advantage of Adobe® Flash® Player 9, enabling developers to seamlessly extend the capabilities of the browser and deliver richer, more responsive client-side applications as well as a more robust integration with server-side functionality and service-oriented architectures.
