SAP Is Using Adobe Flex

SAP TechEd conference opens in Vegas. The big guy is using Flex as a client for Java

Yakov Fain's JDJ Blog

SAP TechEd conference opens today in Vegas. The big guy is using Flex as a client for Java. Here's an abstract of the presentation called "Next Generation of Client Technology for SAP ". When I suggest my clients using Adobe Flex as a front end for Java, the first question they ask is "Who else is using it." I was answering with a couple of super heavy-weight players from Wall Street. Now I'll add one more: the third largest software company in the world.

SAP is a very expensive software, and to make it more affordable, they want to offer their services ala cart. One of the directions SAP is taking is exposing more and more interfaces to their internals in the form of  Web Services, and Adobe Flex client is an excelent consumer of such services.
