ABSTRACT
San Francisco, California-based Macromedia Inc. is set to deliver the beta of a new Flash-based server and presentation-tier framework for building rich Internet applications, getting a leg up on Microsoft Corp., which is working on its own "Flash killer," according to sources. Macromedia will announce the technology, known as Flex, at its developer conference this week in Salt Lake City, Utah officials said. Sources said Flex closely resembles the Flash killer code-named Sparkle, which is being worked on at Microsoft. Sparkle technology is expected to be rolled out to developers writing applications for Microsoft's forthcoming "Longhorn" wave of technologies, sources said.
