Flex Your Portal
Looking to add some "pizazz" to your portal? If so, maybe you've considered Flex, but wondered how it can be integrated into WebSphere Portal. Well, wonder no longer...a new article published on IBM developerWorks takes you step-by-step through the process of integrating Flex with WebSphere Portal.
Why Flex? Well, if you are already familiar with it, then you know how it can help deliver richer Web apps; if you are are not, Flex is an open source software development kit for the development and deployment of cross-platform rich internet applications (RIAs) based on the popular Adobe Flash platform. How popular? By some estimates about 98% of all PCs support Flash, making it one of (if not the most) widely installed software technologies worldwide...so you probably needn't worry that your users won't be able to run Flex-enabled applications.
When you are ready to get started, begin by reading "Integrating Adobe Flex with IBM WebSphere Portal" for all the details!
