    Java Swings Vs Flex which is better?

    purusothamyb

      Hi,

         I do not know whether this is the right place to post this thread. We are planning to replace Java Swings client with Adobe Flex GUI. So I am in the process of analyzing the performances and advantages of Flex over Java Swings.

       

      So, Can any one kindly let me know whether Flex supports all the features of Java Swings (like components... etc).

       

      Actually my backend server is also Java and the communication between client and server is based on CORBA.

       

      So, considering all these constraints please comment on this.

       

       

      Regards,

      Purush.

          Both support object-oriented GUI development. The same core ideas apply to both, so the jump for a developer isn't too intense. Perhaps the largest difference is that Flex has XML layout files which is a nice plus (although many abuse the capability of injecting logic into it as well). JavaFX is the Java-world answer to Flex, so you may want to play around with that first since it will be more familiar.
