Anyone on the list used Macromedia Flex and the "Halo experience model"?
I am working on a project where we are either going to build our own visual
gui toolkit / interface spec in flash or adopt the Halo model with some
changes. Our development group can handle the server client relationship
of things usining jsp's or the flex model. What I am trying to acertain is
if we can reduce the amount of custom "gui" design while preserving and
developing good interaction for the project we are working on. One thing I
like conceptualy is that their hopefully will be outside support for
componenets of our application that would allow it to improve visually
without major rework. The issue here is will Halo be supported enough to
do this so that overtime it becomes like an interface spec?
Also interested in what people think about the way Flex is positoned for
creating rich media apps. From Macromedia's own words it looks like they
are tyring to give developers a visual tool kit to do reasonably good
interaction design without actually doing "interaction design".
Sorry to push another topic onto the list then the mac/win gui mouse
