Re: flex 2
Yes, you need to have a platform that is supported by Flex - but it
works fine with IIS and Apache (check the requirements from the Adobe
site). You COULD also compile Flex apps locally and just deliver the
resulting SWFs to your web server as an alternative.
Yes. Lots of ways. Flash SWFs (which is ultimately what Flex is
generating) can connect to most web services, sockets and read XML from
anything that can provide XML output.
Very much, it's one of the most promising (and increasingly in-demand)
Rich Internet Application platforms. AS3 is also a good stepping stone
into Java, if you ever want to go that route.
