    Can/Should you use Flex 2 for standalone GUI application development?

      I'm new to Flex 2 and am wondering if it's a viable solution to my problem.

      I have some Java apis that access database data. I am trying to develop a front end GUI tool (non-web) to display and manipulate the data. I'm wondering if I can use Flex 2 to develop some sort of GUI application.

      1) Is Flex 2 a good idea to use here instead of Java SWING?
      2) Can Flex 2 be used here? or does the integration between Flex 2 and java have to include an application deployed in a J2EE server and using the Flex Data Services?

      Thanks.
