OpenLaszlo | the premier open-source platform for rich internet applications

OpenLaszlo lets you write Flex 2 applications without shelling out cash to Adobe. Plus, you can compile it to run as a Flash swf file, or as DHTML. Looks pretty good.

One thing to watch out for, though… at least on the Windows platform. It creates a batch file that sets the JAVA_HOME environment variable and then starts the Tomcat server (on my machine, it was here: “C:\Program Files\OpenLaszlo Server 4.0.2\Server\lps-4.0.2\lps\utils\startup.bat”). If you had the wrong JAVA_HOME value set during the install (I upgraded my JDK after I installed OpenLaszlo, so it was pointing to an old folder), the Tomcat startup will always point it at the old value, so go rip this line out of the batch file before you stumble over it like I did.
