Christophe Coenraets Weblog: Flex at Max
Christophe Coenraets Weblog: Flex at Max: "Norm Meyrowitz (Macromedia's president of products) then introduced Rod Smith, VP of Emerging Technologies at IBM. Rod started by sharing the feedback he gets when talking to Enterprise customers: they want a richer user experience and very good enterprise integration. Rod talked about Flex as the presentation-tier technology that can meet these requirements. The IBM emerging technology group has been working with Flex for a while. Rod introduced one of his developers who demonstrated a financial application they are building with Flex. In their configuration, the Flex presentation server is running on top of Websphere, and the rich client application delivered by Flex is communicating back with Websphere, MQ, DB2, and web services."
