I have been playing around with ColdFusion MX7 flash forms and noticed another format called xml, after playing with that it seems like a better idea because I could add my own skins etc…

Which one of these, flash or xml forms would be best to use within my applications? is this something thats just a new fad or something thats here to stay?

sorry for the questions but i would like to use something which will be around in 2 years time and not just a whim.

I would say XML would be a better long term solution. It is heavily used across all programming languages.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
