This session explores the application architecture options for building applications using Adobe's Flex Framework. Although choosing the right architecture can be something of an art, science and religion it should fundamentally start with an understanding your requirements and what is available. Over the past two years a number of 'micro-architectures' have been created for Flex including Cairngorm, PureMVC, Mate, Swiz and others. We shall take a comparative look at these and discuss the relative advantages and disadvantages.
