The answer is: absolutely yes. it's not a only a good choice. it's the best choice.
As you are a newbie. I'll explain it shortly. You will create a front-end interface to allow the users to build the t-shorts runtime. Then you will build a service (php/coldfusion or whatever) server-side to receive the orders with all the specifications, process it, and return the result to the client. Flex provides the best structure to do something like that.
From a GUI point of view, within the physical bounds of the window provided to flex by the browser, there is nothing you could do in any client-side language that you cannot do with Flex and ActionScript. I would say for a rich content site like you're suggesting, your options are Flex or Swing.
As a web-site user I'm more comfortable letting you run a flash application on my machine than a java application.
Also, while Swing can do any of the eye-candy and effects that Flex can do, you'll be coding them all yourself. To get cool transition effects in Flex, all you need to do is to say you want them - all the work is already done.
Thanks for answering me,ciwee_ufrj .
But in the t-shirt editor,. The users can upload their own image as a logo of the t-shirt and the t-shirt templates can be updated by the administrator anytime .Also , the users will be allow to save and resume thier works.
Is Flex supports above requirements?
Bencwai, let's figure that a t-shirt can be described by a set of images that have properties. Like position, width, height, rotate and so on. You can persist these informations in a database and Flex perfectly allows you to do that.
Upload images : checked http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=5534a12f
Templates updated by administrators - checked
Users can save and resume - depends.
if users can save their works remotely, it's ok. If you intend to save their works locally, there are some restrictions. check this link for further informations:
