  • 3. What is RIA?
    Rich Internet applications (RIAs) are web applications that have some of the characteristics of desktop applications, typically delivered by way of a proprietary web browser plug-ins.
    Key characteristics
    • Richness by way of features not supported natively by the web browser such as video playback
    • 4. Advanced communications with supporting servers
    • 5. Consistency
    • 6. Offline use
    • 7. Performance
  • Cross Browser
    Works on Trident, Webkit, Gecko rendering Engines seamlessly.
  • 8. Compelling Cross-Platform User Experiences
    • Immersive media experiences & RIA
    • 9. Seamless, fast installation for end users
    • 10. Consistent experiences on Mac / Windows
    Flexible programming model
    • Integration with Web technologies
    • 11. Based on the .NET Framework
    • 12. Role specific tools for designers / developers
    Efficient, lower cost delivery, of high cost media
    • HD to Mobile

    • 18. Mac OS X and Windows
    • 19. Any web server
    Fast, easy install process + 3D Graphics
  • 20. Silverlight Technologies
    WPF and XAML. Silverlight includes Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) technology, which greatly extends the elements in the browser for creating UI, extending browser-based UI beyond what is available with HTML alone. Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) provides a declarative markup syntax for creating WPF elements.
    Extensions to JavaScript. Silverlight provides extensions to the universal browser scripting language that provide powerful control over the browser UI, including the ability to work with WPF elements.
  • 21. Silverlight Merits
    Integration with existing applications. Silverlight integrates seamlessly with existing JavaScript and ASP.NET AJAX code to complement functionality already created.
    Access to the .NET Framework programming model and to associated tools. Silverlight-based applications may be created using dynamic languages such as IronRuby and IronPython as well as languages such as C# and Visual Basic. Development tools such as Visual Studio can be leveraged to create Silverlight-based applications.
  • 22. Other Advantages
    Single, consistent runtime for browser-based applications.
    Performance is promising (Graphic card acceleration).
    There is an official open source implementation of Silverlight (Moonlight). Developed by Novell on behalf of Microsoft.
    Search engines can potentially index text within a Silverlight application, just as they can with Flash.
  • 23. Conclusion
    The design tools (Expression Blend and Expression Design) are comparatively new.
    Silverlight is a browser-only solution (Adobe has AIR, a desktop and browser based solution).
    Development on Windows platform only (while deployment is cross-platform).
    Yet to penetrate market as Adobe Flash continues to dominate even though it is feature-rich and developer friendly.
