Rich Internet Applications (RIA) is a completely new kind of web experience that offers the flexibility of an intelligent desktop application. It combines the vital strengths of both web-based and desktop applications. It provides the facility to transfer the processing necessary for the user interface to the web client.
Rich Internet Application can be built by using the following technologies:
With AJAX the client and server interaction is asynchronous, or in other words the client server interaction is not based on requests. Making the best use of this technology, the server can upload data to the browser without waiting for a request. The advantage of this technology is that rich internet applications built on AJAX are fast and easy to download.
With applications built using Flash technology, a flash player is used to render flash content to users. It is mostly used in rich internet applications to integrate audio and video content. This technology is ideally suited for applications where emphasis on animations and graphics is high.
Microsoft Silverlight is a powerful tool for creating and delivering rich Internet applications and media experiences on the Web. Silverlight is a new cross-browser, cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework for building and delivering the next generation of media experiences and Rich Interactive Applications (RIA) for the web. It runs in all popular browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Opera. The plug-in required to run Silverlight is very small in size hence gets installed very quickly.
Some of the major advantages of Rich Internet Applications are:
It also helps in reducing the network traffic significantly. A rich internet application-specific client engine can be more intelligent than a standard Web browser when it comes to decide what data needs to be exchanged with servers. This can speed up individual requests or responses because less data is being transferred for each interaction, and overall network load is reduced
