Title:

What is Flex?
Flex is very prominent and familiar with professional developers. Flex is a set of products designed in an effective way based on efficient delivery of high performance.

Flex is a standard-based programming model for high performance rich internet applications. Flex application will take advantage of adobe flash player 9 and this will enable developer to extend the capabilities enables the client with richer applications in real time.

Flex framework represents the presentation tire in multitier architecture applications and will be easy integrated with server-side functionality. If you want to create flex application then, you will start this application on Flex builder, which is IDE with visual layout, debugging, skinning, coder hinting and styling for developing rich Internet applications.

What are various features that make to adopt Flex?
I have started coding with flash since the flash version 4 and get them started coding with flash 4 by the way the only available functions in this version. Later version of flash like Flash 5 until Flash MX 2004, the coding in flash was improved too much with action script 2.0. Therefore, using advanced technology like advanced games advanced application with communication interacting with server, reading data configuration from Xml files.

However, as if now flex changes my way of working with coding writing. I want to get this technology due to it functionalities so I have stated discovering Flex and their programming classes and functions.

I have kept a function in flash to real XML file and parse it to next or previous record and I was passing this function once needed. Now and with Flex, we have predefined http classes that will work after passing URL.

With Flex has predefined functions and classes that enable us to read or synchronize data perfectly. These predefined functions and classes will work for us automatically so that I should focus on animation and interactivity. First, try to use it and see the difference. Personally, I am using Adobe Flex as tool to create RIA (Rich Internet applications).

RIAs developed into adobe Flex is the cross browser and platform compatibility. Rich internet application developed in Flash player.

Implementation of Flex player made the adobe flash player to more and more user's machine.
