How does Flash4j differ from other GWT based libraries like Ext GWT and Smart GWT?
Flash4j applications leverage the Flash platform. So you need the Flash plugin to run them. While the dependency to the Flash plugin sounds like a disanvatage
Flash still does certain things better and more efficiently than HTML5. One of the biggest argument against Flash is that it does not work on mobile. Guess what ? The above libraries either.
