Hello Filippo,

thank you very much for being here and answering questions! I am wondering what Flex actually is about. Before I start diving into it, I'd like to know something about it:

What kind of apps/user interfaces can I create with Flex?
In which way does Flex differ from other technologies, such as JSP, Swing, ...?
What are the benefits compared to other technologies?

I am not an expert in user interface technologies. Maybe you can give me a short overview about what Flex could do for me, if I wanted to create a user interface. Thank you very much!

Pretty much anything you like (except on an iPhone).


In which way does Flex differ from other technologies, such as JSP, Swing, ...?

Its pretty simmilar to Swing - both can produce rich client applications that can run in browser plugins.


What are the benefits compared to other technologies?

Phew. There is no short answer to this. I suggest you do a little browsing of the Adobe website, see what Flex can do, then download Flex and give it a try.
