Re: Future of Adobe Flex as a RIA in 2018

Hi Najeeb

Piotr mentioned it already but I want to let you know that Apache Royale is
in heavy development now and it makes you have the same fast development
with AS3 and MXML that you'll have in Flex, but targeting HTML/JS/CSS in
the browsers (as well SWF, but I's not as well developed that what we have
in html now)

I recommend you to check this so you can decide better:


As you can see in the examples, the code is almost the same as Flex, but
the example is running in almost any plataform browser.
You can use Cordova or AIR to go mobile.

About native, some day Royale could compile directly to native iOS, native
Android...as we do now with SWF and HTML different outputs.
In the other hand, Royale HTML output seems to be very optimized, and with
the latest mobile devices, I think HTML is a good option in terms of
performance and you'll be targeting lots of devices with only one

Hope this helps
