Rich Internet Applications

RIAmore offers rapid prototyping and development of Rich Internet Applications based on Apache Flex/Adobe AIR technology.

On the server side PHP and MySQL are used, combined with either the Zend Framework or the Drupal Content Management Framework.


In this section Actionscript, Flex and AIR applications are shown that demonstrate the fast responsiveness of Rich Internet Applications (RIA).

Since RIA technologies operate on the client side, serverload is reduced. This also means that a more lightweight server can be used.
