Advertising To provide an application and service such as the RMX to AUGs and their members for no charge, we must have advertising to help support the network. The RMX is a desirable advertising platform precisely because it is so specialized—it represents an effective way to communicate to a very targeted market. The RMX advertising system is network-wide; individual partner AUGs do not have control over the advertising on their sites, although there are accommodations for them to supplement their sites with additional advertising that they control.

The Flex framework utilizes a mixture of a custom XML format called MXML and ActionScript 3—you cannot use any previous version of ActionScript with Flex 2 or 3. There are no timelines in the Flex world; it is structured entirely by components, driven by events, and held together with robust data binding. Even though developing applications is entirely different in Flex than in Flash, it is important to understand that both result in the creation of SWF files—the compiled format of the Flash Platform.

While Flash enables a wide breadth of possible experiences, Flex was designed from the ground up to build applications. The emergence of Flex will likely lead to a cleaner differentiation between coding and noncoding roles of the Flash Platform, with a big chunk of the coding moving into Flex. Certainly, there will be people who continue to straddle the divide, knowing, and even mastering, both Flex and Flash. And it will continue to be unclear for some time how precisely this will play out—how much heavy-duty ActionScript will still be conducted in Flash, how much will separate cleanly out to Flex.
