Presentation: "Rich Internet Applications for the Enterprise with Flex and Apollo"

Track:   Ajax & Browser-Based Applications

Time: Friday 13:00 - 14:00

Location: Fleming Room


For the last two years, the industry has shifted its attention back to the client and the user interface. Noticeable progress has already been made, putting pressure on IT organizations to deliver better user experiences.

The incremental improvements that we are witnessing today are just the first steps on a path towards "high definition" user interfaces: real time data, in-context collaboration, vector graphics-powered expressiveness, rich media integration, and offline capabilities will soon become standard attributes of any client application.

In this session, Christophe will introduce you to Flex, a complete solution for building this new breed of applications that combine the richness of desktop applications with the reach of web applications. Combined with Apollo (the code name for Adobe's new cross-platform client), Flex applications can run inside or outside the browser.

Christophe will provide an in-depth overview of the Flex programming model and focus on the integration with existing Enterprise infrastructure (Spring, Hibernate, Portals, etc)
