Forget about ajax powered web applications. Flex is the way to go.

Great looking product. Last year, I was looking to get 12 copies of the high end version of Flex at about $800 a pop at that time for my development team. It looked like an ideal extension from our existing and very substantial ColdFusion product suite. However, after the order was placed, we found that in order to deploy on network the product that we created with the $800 product, you need a Flex server license that ran $20,000 per processor on the server! There was no mention of that at all on their Flex front ends at that time. In fact, Adobe made it VERY hard to find that information at all so we could even confirm that we would have to have that as well. We eventually found that it was true, and cancelled our order. No Flex for us, even if Adobe changed their pricing, as we now have a serious trust issue with them. Just our experience, yours may differ.

Actually, you only need the LiveCycle Data Services server if you're in need of very high-end enterprise messaging. Adobe makes the "express" version of LCS available for free so long as you stay with a single processor (even if it's multicore). They also recently released BlazeDS, which open-sources most of what was previously only available in LCS and is available for free at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/blazeds/. It's possible BlazeDS may provide everything you need.

Thanks for the suggestion, but a single (even dual core) processor is inadequate for an enterprise with 16,000 internal customers and several thousand more external and 40 locations around the world. We have built more than 40 custom ColdFusion apps that get used continuously by our customers, and we wanted to use Flex for RIAs--but obviously we'd need much more horsepower than we'd get from something as lightweight as BlazeDS. The issue's not money for us, it's trust. We're sticking with ColdFusion for now because they haven't led us down the garden path there to this point--but we are evaluating potential replacements and migration strategy in the event that we feel we might need to in the next few years. Too bad, because we love CF and think we'd have really liked Flex, but trust is worth a lot more than money.

Just to clarify, for most users this is not an issue. There is nothing special needed on the server. Flex just outputs a SWF and works wherever Flash works.
