View Full Version : When to use Adobe Flex for a webapp?

07-15-2009, 11:51 AM
Hello all,

I am evaluating whether or not to use for Adobe Flex 3 and ActionScript 3 for a web application that I am going to build.

This web application has a customer base and an administration panel. The changes made in administration panel are displayed on customer base.

The administration panel is basically going to require creation of forms, interaction between the forms, storing/retrieving the data to/from database etc. This will be used on company intranet only.
The customer base is going to have a lot to images which will have to displayed in a nice way, preferably with image scrolls, slide-shows etc. This site would be available on public internet.

Would it be a good idea to use Adobe flex for both of these categories or should I just use Flex for customer base and make the administration panel with some MVC-based framework like Zend or Symfony, making use of HTML templates.

Any suggestions... :confused:

Thanks and Regards
