Subject RE: rich clients in Flash with Cocoon?
Date Thu, 07 Oct 2004 21:26:01 GMT
This sounded to me like they were using Cocoon as an XML data source for
binding to a
Laszlo dataset requiring no integration of the technologies.

While a Laszlo serializer would certainly be interesting I imagine that
recompiling
the SWF for each request would hurt performance.  One of the key
advantages I see in using
RIA technologies like Laszlo is that you get a continuous user interface
without the need
to keep going back to the server to get new pages.  A precompiled SWF
calling back to
Cocoon for XML data would seem to be able to do that today.

Cheers
Adam
