“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.”
