Flex: Adobe's proprietary, partially open-sourced RIA front-end language Adobe FLEX is a software development kit released by Adobe Systems for the development and deployment of cross-platform Rich Internet Applications based on the Adobe Flash platform. Flex applications can be written using Adobe Flex Builder or by using the freely available Flex compiler from Adobe.


Language

The following list summarizes key points about Flex technology:

   * Flex applications are SWF files.
   * Flex is a programmer-centric way to create Flash-based rich internet applications.
   * Flex applications are rendered using Flash Player 9.
   * Like all Flash RIAs, Flex SWF files are processed by the client, rather than the server.
   * Flex can connect to server-based applications like ColdFusion, PHP, ASP.NET and Java.
   * You can retrieve plain text or XML data via HTTP.
   * You can retrieve Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messages using web services.
   * You can work with Java remote objects (POJOs, JavaBeans, EJBs and ColdFusion Components) using LiveCycle Data Services (previously Flex Data Services).
