Adobe Flex

If your site is purely animations (like some company timeline from the start of the company to the current date), it's well suited for this use case.

ASP.NET

ASP.NET is very well suited for building web applications for users that have good experience with .NET framework and C#. The learning curve is very mild and allows for very quick development of applications because of all the templates that can be utilized (available with Visual Studio). Moreover, Visual Studio 2015/2017 community edition is free and contains a large set of features for developing, compiling and debugging ASP.NET applications. From personal experience with the introduction of Web API it is very easy to build RESTful APIs and it is a breeze to publish on IIS servers with a click of a button. Additional advantage is when using Azure services which also allows quick publishing of ASP.NET applications to the cloud with very little configuration needed.I would assume that it is more difficult to jump to ASP.NET from a different technology and programming languages. Even within ASP.NET it can be a bit of a steep learning curve to move from Web Forms to MVC for example.

Cons

  • It's heavy as it needs to load the Flash plugin first before rendering anything to the user.
  • Not future ready as there is no support for mobile and tablet platforms.

  • The documentation for much of the MSDN could be improved. That said, they have done a much better job with .NET Core.

Alternatives Considered

We are replacing adobe flex with Sencha.

.NET is most comparable to Java, the other main managed runtime being used. Both have their values, but .NET has the support of Micrsoft behind it and has some nicer tools. For example, I find Visual Studio much nicer than NetBeans or Eclipse. Now that Core is out, the primary advantage of Java, cross platform compatibility, is less of a factor.
