[etech06] Kevin Lynch (Adobe) Rich Internet Apps and the Service Oriented Client


Client technology for web applications.

We have Ajax, but there are some things we want to do – vector graphics, safe cross-domain scripting, storage better than cookies, etc.

This morning he’s announcing the connection of flash player to ajax. Open sourced in AFLAX (the framework around ajax and flash) and dojo.storage.

These are all enabled by Flash Player. The flex framework is a way of typing in xml and script code to generate these apps. Flex/Ajax bridge. All these components are downloadable free.

He shows a demo of a flickr browser app that uses ajax and flash, with server logic in Rails.

He demos another application that doesn’t use flash but has a data connecter component that updates pages and local desktop data simultaneously in more or less real time.
