It’s a small world afterall! Ook Ad\venture overweegt om t.b.v. een aanvullende dienst binnen het platform Flex te gebruiken. Uiteraard zal ik niet diegene zijn die daadwerkelijk aan de slag gaat met, maar van wat ik er tot nu toe van heb gezien. lijkt het mij een toegevoegde waarde hebben in aankomende ontwikkeling(en).

Wellicht als e.e.a. definitief is, dat wij nog contact met jou opnemen. met wij bedoel ik dan m.n. Rene Smit………..

I expect a lot of Apollo. The integration of the flash runtime and the acrobat reader into one will give so much possibilities. Image the kind of pdf’s you can create when you can use the (Apache Tamarin) scripting module: It is already possible to include a form in a pdf, but than you can also add powerful validations and conditional checks. I also think this is a smart move when adobe wants to compete with Microsoft’s Vista with build in pdf creation and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

I think the last real advantage is that it gives you a true cross-platform development language; no debugging on different browsers or different operating systems any longer (and oh, did you see the Debugger in Flex Builder? 😉 ).

One final comment regarding Apollo; it doesn’t only do Flex/Flash and HTML/JavaScript, it will also do PDF!
