Adobe Donates Flex to Apache

In a move that appears to be another step away from its Flash platform, Adobe has submitted the code for its Flash-based Flex framework to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) to be managed as an independent project.

While the company pledged its continued support for Flex -- along with its underlying Flash technology -- Adobe also suggested that Web application developers in the future would be using HTML5 rather than Flash.

"In the long-term, we believe HTML5 will be the best technology for enterprise application development," the blog post stated. "We also know that, currently, Flex has clear benefits for large-scale client projects typically associated with desktop application profiles."

Flex is an SDK (Software Development Kit) that includes a compiler and a number of libraries that can be used to build cross-platform Rich Internet Applications (RIA) that run on Adobe Flash. In 2008, the company placed the SDK under an open-source license.

The ASF will now vote on whether to take on Adobe Flex. The open-source software body has not commented on if it will agree to manage the technology's development. If it does, however, it may not be long before Flex becomes an Apache project. In 2010, when Google submitted Wave as a potential project, ASF approved the technology within a month
