Flex Actionscript 3- The Future of Rich & Interactive Applications! - Articles Surfing

With the advent of Flash and Flex technology, the era of static websites no longer holds much value. Today, there is a high demand for rich Internet applications and this new beta version Flex Actionscript 3 offers a truly RIA environment. The latest Actionscript is the most recent advancement in flash animation technology. Be it data synchronization, automated testing, or any enterprise-oriented service, the new Flex version supports all runtime applications.

Many developers consider Flex Actionscript 3 as the 'big brother' of Flash; however there is a thin-line of difference between both the technologies. While Flash empowered animators to create visually stunning web applications, Adobe's latest beta version is just a bigger sandbox for developers to play in with their creativity. Flex Actionscript 3 might have excellent animation control, but not all developers are good designers. But being equipped with fabulous business logic, Flex offers a complete application development tool which can be a great tool for both designers and developers. With task separation provision, both developers and designers can get the best of the latest version of Flex and build much richer applications.

This beta version of Flex architecture is platform and browser independent. It means it can effectively run on all major browsers as well as devices. The applications developed on Flex can be deployed easily and offers high-performance user experience.

Flex Actionscript 3 has excellent animations, graphics and multimedia features and facilitates fully functional RIA development through lesser coding and that too fast turnaround time. Flex technology is a combination of GUI and Actionscript code. While the Flex based client-server applications run on the client browser, it synchronize with the database through server-side scripting technologies like Perl, ColdFusion, .NET, PHP, and Ruby.

Some primary benefits of Flex Actionscript 3 can be summarized as follows:

' Dynamic websites having RIA applications
' Components reusability
' High performance data synchronization
' Unparalleled interactivity features with excellent audio and video streaming facilities
' Cross-platform independent
' Easy application integration

Let's highlight some Dos and Don'ts about Flex Actionscript 3 development

Always prefer MVC architecture,

Model-View-Controller (MVC) technique offers the simplistic code design format where you can control the flow of info and logic. Developers working on same project can also share their work without any interruption through this MVC architecture.

XML file handling is not top priority

For large enterprise applications, it's redundant to load and parse XML again and again during runtime. It might be worthy for smaller applications, but for large applications, the loading will make the application slower.

Avoid mixing Actionscript with MXML

The design part in Flex Actionscript 3 is implemented through MXML and the business logic is implemented through Actionscript. As the two processes are different, it's advisable not to mix them. In this way, the application with separate layout and coding functionality will be easier for others to understand.
