S, it kind of depends on what you want to do. Flex
applications (large and small) deploy as flash files, so I assume
they could be included in a webSphere
1) Flex "talks" to back end data via Web Services and / or
java objects - this is something I am sure WebSphere can handle
(although I am no expert). FDS is required if you want your Flex
app to interact with back end data in real time - If that's
something you need, it is available for free, at entry level.
2) I would drop an email to Shlomy Gantz, the owner or Blue
and manager of the NYC Flex group. If he can't do it, I'm sure he
knows someone that can. Drop me a line at domalley AT medifit.com,
or reply here if you need more help/information.
