While deciding on RIA technologies corporate wide, couple of
major drawbacks which are indicated over and over is the missing
support in Flex for 'HTML content inside a Flex application' (Adobe
adressed this in AIR and to an extent we can use the iFrame type
solution, but is not foolprood) and the 'Right Click ' feature
Infact, at times these two features are very much the reason
to go for a hybrid solution than a full fledged monolithic flex
application. I was curious to know, how far Adobe is working on
addressing these prime issues. Any insight?
I am confident that there will NEVER be full html support in
the Flash Player. It would make it too large. Well, "never" is
pretty extreme, lets say "forseeable future". There has been no
indication form Adobe that this is a seious consideration.
AIR is going to be the solution to this issue.
I don't recall hearing anything about the context menu.
Well, if file size is an issue, why not leave that decision
to the end user who is will to accommodate/compromise for the
purpose of having functionality!.
It is interesting to see that there is no mainstream
reasoning around, inspite of seeing this topic hanging in the air
