in a couple of month, I'll start working on a personal
project. I have the main idea since a long time in my head but, I'm
still looking for the right tools to develop it. Right now, I have
always work with Flash and never use Flex, but have done some
research on it. I have see some nice Flex project but still have
some issue with it!
So far, the only advantage I have see from Flex is that you
can embed a web page... so here some question:
Why file size is so big compare to Flash (around 130kb)?
Most of the Flex apps are looking the same so, I am wondering
if we can do everything or we have to follow a pre-defined
Can we do everything in Flex that can be done in Flash?
What is the best tool for RIA, if I am going to code mostly
Is the preloader can be skinnable so it not look like it is a
1) The flex Framework code.The benefit is lsee coding for
2) The app can look anyway you want. It is just easy for
non-designers to just use the Halo skins.
3) Essentially. It all SWF, running in the Flash Player.
6) Depends. One is a classic, application centered
development process and methodology. No
"timeline", "frames", etc.
there are others. Google will get you a lot of discussion.
