Introduction to RIA(Rich Internet Application) and Adobe Flex

I wanted to contribute to open source projects and for that I have started to get through on RIA (Rich Internet Application) and Adobe Flex2 for creating user-friendly web-based applications/admin panel.

My friend Mukesh Gupta who is working on Adobe Flex with me in Magnet Technologies , and he has helped me for learning Adobe Flex.

What is Flex?

Adobe® Flex™ 2 is a complete, powerful application development solution for creating and delivering cross-platform rich Internet applications (RIAs) within the enterprise and across the web. It provides a modern, standards-based language and programming model that supports common design patterns and includes an Eclipse™ based development environment; advanced data services; and a fast, enterprise-class client runtime based on ubiquitous Adobe Flash® Player software.

How is Flex different from Flash?
Flash is the leading authoring tool for web developers, multimedia professionals, animators, and videographers who want to create rich interactive content. Flex 2 products enable more application developers to leverage the powerful Flash runtime to create data-driven RIAs. In addition, developers can use Flash and Flex Builder together to add rich interactive elements to a structured, Flex based application.
What do I need to start building Flex applications today?
The fastest, easiest way to get started is to use Flex Builder 2 software. Or, you can download the Flex SDK, which includes the Flex framework and compiler, enabling you to develop Flex applications using the IDE of your choice.
Do I need to install the Flex SDK if I use Flex Builder?
No. When you install Flex Builder, you automatically get the Flex framework and everything you need to start building Flex applications today.
