Macromedia Flex

Anil Dash points to the blog by Christophe Coenraets: “Flex consists of a presentation server installed on top of a J2EE application server or servlet container, a rich library of user interface components, an XML-based markup language used to declaratively lay out these components, and an object-oriented programming language to handle the user interactions with the application. The end result is a Rich Internet Application (RIA) rendered using Flash Player and developed using industry standards and a development paradigm familiar to developers…The basic idea is that Flex addresses the well known limitations of HTML in terms of providing interactive user interfaces and smart client-side data manipulation.”

Could Flex be the platform for rich internet applications?
