Example text

4. Primary Apollo Technologies There are three primary technologies included within Apollo, which fall into two distinct categories: application technologies and document technologies. 1. Primary Application Technologies Application technologies are technologies that can be used as the basis of an application within Apollo. Apollo contains two primary application technologies, Flash and HTML, both of which can be used on their own to build and deploy Apollo applications. 1. Flash One of the core technologies Apollo is built on is the Flash Player.

In essence, it provides a platform in between the desktop and the browser, which combines the reach and ease of development of the web model with the functionality and richness of the desktop model. Note: Apollo is the code name for the project. The final name had not yet been announced at the time of this writing. It is important to step back for a second and point out what Apollo is not. Apollo is not a general desktop runtime meant to compete with lower-level application runtimes. This means that you probably wouldn't want to build Photoshop on top of Apollo.

Neither the runtime nor the development tools are tied to a specific OS. The same is true of Apollo. Not only does Apollo provide the cross-platform reach of web applications, but, just as importantly, Apollo applications can be developed and packaged on virtually any operating system. In fact, Apollo itself does not have a compiler or specialized IDE. Apollo applications just consist of web content, such as Flash and HTML. Any tool that can edit an HTML or JavaScript file can also be used to create an Apollo application.
