I'm just wondering if anybody has got any experience in integrating Flex or OpenLaszlo with Rails and which people prefer. I've seen some of the tutorials but am pondering which one, if any, I should turn to: http://coenraets.com/tutorials/flexonrails/flexonrails.html http://www.liverail.net/articles/2006/04/16/rubyon... http://weblog.openlaszlo.org/archives/2006/01/anno...

If you are talking about Flex2, which is the one with the great demos and the free IDE + SDK, than you should consider that it is just for Flashplayer 8.5, which is still in beta, while Lazslo stuff runs on any flashplayer. They are both somehow similar to RHTML-templating: Code is embedded inside XML files

I did some tests with Flex and Laszlo (nothing to fancy) and I've seen that Flex is almost twice as fast as Laszlo.

I've worked with Flex2 and the latest Laszlo release talking to rails over XML-RPC and SOAP. Flex2 seems to be more polished, with better interface components. Laszlo has less polished components, but they are much easier to extend. Just my 2 cents ;) Shawn
