Our company is currently investigating technical
possibilities for developing a RIA connecting to an existing Java
(JBoss) server application. The current UI (HTML) is outdated and
not flexible enough. From my point of view (GUI designer) Flex
seems to meet our requirements. Because the GUI has to present
complex data structures in a clear way I like to use a dynamic
environment that users can modify to meet their tasks.
Java Webstart seems another possibility with the same
advantages. And one main advantage of Webstart is that you don't
need to purchase something like Flex Data Services for advanced
data connectivity with the server.
Does anyone has experience with both techniques and does
anyone know what we should investigate before making this
