Adobe Flex allows you to create Rich Internet Applications with an engaging user experience using an Eclipse based IDE (Flex Builder). The applications run consistently across browsers and operating systems within the Flash Player browser plug-in.

I think a video describes more the thousand words, so here is a 12 minute recording of a sample application we developed with Flex and connected to an SAP backend. Companies like Indo in Spain use Flex today to provide rich web based UI’s on top of their SAP backend (here you can find more info about their implementation). Interested? Join us at SDN Day (Las Vegas and Amsterdam) and you will learn the fundamentals of creating Flex applications and connecting them to an SAP backend.

As part of the session we will install the latest Flex Builder 2 on your machine and get you started with some examples you can take home and expand. We will also talk about the integration between AJAX and Flex so you can enhance existing AJAX sites with Flex/Flash like Google Finance.

If you want to get an early start (or cannot attend SDN day) you can download a Flex 2 trial version here and find lots of samples and tutorials here.
