I attended a 2 day hands-on training on Adobe flex by Harish .
It seamlessly integrates with XML based systems,and is a complete visual treat to work with.
Athough the licenses are a little on the higher side(~$700),so for the time being for my own aquaintance,I am working with OpenLaszlo.
It seems that the latter is somewhat a little less mature than the former,but since it is fed by the Open Source community,there would definitely be a lot of adding to it..
I have move to a more fun and happier life since my last post..more about the events in future posts!
