But it is pretty cool.
No need for AJAX calls, just use the very neat HTTPService object. No worries positioning your screen items, just drag and drop them. Nothing to do to handle different browsers, as a Flash file is going to look identical on any browser.
I’m not exactly sure how Adobe makes money out of this kind of thing. It all seems free, although I believe the original Flex did have some big licencing costs. I plan on taking advantage of Flex whereever possible from now on, so I’m hoping it stays free and it continues to be supported.
And how about Adobe AIR.. Well, there’s a whole new interesting approach that is really a very short hop from Flex.
