"A rich internet application is a web application that resembles a desktop application in many ways, but is delivered by a browser, virtual machine or from a browser plug-in. The most popular platforms for rich internet applications are Adobe Flash, and Java.

"There are a number of benefits of delivering business software through the web, such as easier administration and simplified accessibility. Traditionally, web applications often had limited functionality, composed of static pages, and were typically more complicated to develop than desktop applications.

"However, rich internet application frameworks make the art of developing highly interactive web applications to be a much more pleasant experience. These frameworks are a set of languages and tools which enable developers to create rich user interfaces for web applications. Programmers can deploy web applications that actually behave like desktop applications. This is achieved by a group of interrelated web development techniques which enable the client-side to create interactive applications. They also have other advantages, such as removing the need for users to deal with software updates."
