Allaire on Rich Internet Applications

The Java Developer’s Journal has posted an interview with Jeremy Allaire discussing ColdFusion MX, JRun 4 and Rich Internet Applications.

I don’t think Macromedia Flash has grown popular because of Java applets failure, but rather because of it’s own inherent benefits; an approachable scripting and design environment; a powerful and capable object model; strong built-in support for remote communication and back-end integration; very small, lightweight distribution of the runtime, and the ability to design very small, lightweight client applications because of its vector-based design, and finally the phenomenal ubiquity across pretty much every major browser, operating system and device platform.
