The RIA world has been seeing intensified competition since last year's releases of Microsoft Silverlight and Sun JavaFX,
which joined the Adobe Flex/AIR to become the major RIA development platforms.
Even though all three of them intent to reach the the same goal, richer user experience and more creative media delivering, the technologies behind them are vast different. But how different from a RIA developer's perspective?

So let's compare them.


like in reference of Built-in UI Controls
Flex - yes
Silverlight - Very limited to none
JavaFX - Via Swing

just post your comments
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
