My rule of thumb is that if there is data. like a database. then yes. Flex
is the way to go.

Subject: [flexcoders] I don't know if I need Flex (please help me to decide)



Hi! I will try to explain my situation:
I'm a Flash developer (not a good one, just one more...), I know AS3, OOP, I
can read MXML and I've read a lot about Flex in the last days, although I
have never used it.
And there's a reason for that, the SWF size, I'm from Argentina, and here
internet is really slow in many places (mine is 128kbps for example, so to
load a SWF of just 150KB I need to wait approx. 10 seconds)

I was reading about RSL's to solve that, and it looks good, but I think
could be a lot some "problems":
1) the first download will be very slow
2) if my RSL is not cached for any reason then nobody will be visiting the
site again
3) what happens if I need to protect some project? I've read an article
about Nitro-LM with RSL's (I don't know if it's the best option, for the
moment I have never protected any code...), but if our RSL is encrypted,
will be cached then?
4) I don't know, is there any other problem with RSL's? what do you think?

I was reading about using Flex without the Flex Framework, and I like that
idea, but what happens if I need a component? just one? I need to include
again +200KB of code?

I was thinking in working purely in AS3 and reusing some classes from Flex
without embedding all the framework (my first goal is to make a really light
I want to use Flex because there are some classes and components that I
don't have in Flash, and I need them, like RemoteObject.

So, I need some of the Flex Classes but I need a very light SWF.
Is possible to achieve that with Flex?
