As the World Wide Web's landscape has evolved from the days of multimedia-void static HMTL pages, the need for a dynamic interactive medium for Web applications has become apparent. Adobe Flash, as many developers know, is the most widely distributed, capable technology for achieving this new Internet medium. But Flash developers can't achieve the features expected from modern Web applications with Flash alone - for Flash's resources to be put to proper use, Flash must team up with a server-side technology capable of functionality such as database access and file manipulation. Microsoft's newest Web technology, ASP.NET, is a perfect counterpart for Flash, putting powerful capabilities at the fingertips of Flash developers, created using a programming language that is both friendly and familiar to ActionScript developers. ASP.NET ASP.NET, like other Web platforms su... (more)

ASP.NET Presentation Tier Since the inception of the World Wide Web in 1989, HTML has been the medi... (more)

The Executable Internet

As the Internet evolves, the demand for a Web interface that rivals the functionality of desktop applications has become evident. The solution is the "executable Internet," a rich-client technology boasting a client-side browser plug-in capable of making the user's experience of a Web page much more interactive and powerful. The combination of ASP.NET and Macromedia's Flash Remoting is one of the most compelling rich-client interfaces available to overcome today's development limitations. The Limitations In order to fully leverage the immense power of the .NET Framework on the W... (more)

Grab Hold of the Vine and Swing Over the Pitfalls

The world of Flash development can be a dangerous place. Although Flash offers the most comprehensive set of tools for Web site user interface development, there are numerous pitfalls that can cause a project to go sour. Flash's complexity can result in "two-day" projects taking two weeks, database access becoming nearly impossible, and file sizes that are daunting. I'll talk about some of the methods I've used to overcome these types of problems in a site I've recently developed, www.getfreshfruit.com. Get Your Fresh Cut Fruit Here www.getfreshfruit.com is a project I worked on t... (more)
