Migrating from Flex to HTML5

Leveraging next-gen technologies to deliver the best digital experiences

It’s been couple of years that Adobe donated the Flex Framework to the Apache Foundation. Ever since that, the road has been downhill for Flex. No doubt that Flex-based development was a strong option for developers in the past, but HTML5 is fast becoming the preferred option owing to its rich features.

HTML5 is a core technology mark-up language and can be used for front-end development of a website. Flex had become popular when Jobs had famously ignored Flash products on Apple products. However, HTML5 works on Apple Devices as seamlessly as Flex did at its peak. Using this new technology, developers can create responsive apps like a breeze. It supports the latest multimedia content and adds new syntactic features. It offers significant improvements in the quality and capability of browser-based web applications. The apps work effortlessly across multiple devices, resolutions and browsers. Recognising the wide scope of this new technology, many enterprises now want to move their apps from Flex to HTML5.

While this may be a prudent move, the transition is definitely not a smooth process. It usually involves writing an application from scratch, and that is never an easy task. Apart from the tough task of coding again, it is also very difficult to maintain the existing application UI. But enterprises can make this switch easily by partnering with e-Zest and leveraging its deep understanding and experience of working with HTML5 and its related technologies – Javascript and CSS.
