Hi

I need a technology similar to the new Microsoft technology "SilverLight" 1.0. (SilverLight works with .Net 3.0 and it looks beautiful & powerful)
Here is a link to it : SilverLight

Please help me to find a similar technology in J2EE.

Thanks in advance!

Maryam

Maryam,
Per Microsoft, Silverlight is a "cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web."

It sounds like Flex (Flash based) is more of a competitor then J2EE. J2EE doesn't stive to address this. The only Java plugin around is applets and these are rarely used in a J2EE application.

You can still use J2EE as your back end with flex.

Although not yet ready for prime-time, JavaFX might be worthwhile watching in this area.

Flex with J2EE sounds good and as Ulf has already pointed out Java-FX is going to rule.

We don't know yet, but hopefully it is
