Dear Sir,

Does the book cover some hands on experience in using RIA application?

What does it mean when they say RIA runs within a sandbox?

Thanks and Regards,
Sahana

Yes, the book is written in a tutorial style.

To answer your second questions, a sandbox refers to the fact that JavaFX Script programs run on a JVM in an environment that protects the client machine, requiring the user to authorize actions such as file access.

By the way, my "Helping you become a JavaFXpert" weblog at http://JavaFXpert.com has lots of information about JavaFX, including the latest happenings. Today's post (April 1, 2008) in that weblog, by the way, contains a link to the video of one of the JavaFX Script presentations that I did at JavaPolis last December.
Here's a direct link to that post.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for providing me those links. I look forward to reading them .

How is using this better than using AJAX which is used in most of the application these days?

Thanks and regards,
Sahana

Hey Sahana,

Hope this article helps you to find the difference! I think technologies will have pros and cons.

IMHO, Which one to put to use will definitely depend uopn the problem space at hand, not from the solution space!
