Enterprise web applications today are increasingly evolving in the direction of Rich Internet Applications (RIA). The ability to combine easy deployment of the web with rich desktop functionality on the client to deliver a quality end-user experience has made the RIA approach particularly attractive to e-businesses that wish to lower infrastructure cost without compromising user productivity. There are different RIA-related technologies presently available such as Java Desktop (JDNC), Java Web Start, DHTML, Flash, etc.
As client-side processing without server involvement takes on a bigger role in the interface logic, it is vital for the client-tier to address globalization requirements equally well to ensure correct application behavior that meets local user's Àôs expectations.
