Q.Rich User Experience over the Web? A. XBAP

Tim blogs about the British Library WPF (XBAP) application – XAML Browser Applications (XBAP) are full featured WPF applications.  WPF Wonderland notes that XBAP does restrict the WPF feature set, but XBAP is definately the way to get a visually rich WPF solution deployed via a browser.  MSDN has the full feature set of XBAP here. The British Library used XBAP over WPF/E for a reason – but at the expense of cross-platform, cross browser.

Ian Moulster lists the other possible solution for rich client experiences – Atlas, WPF/E and ASP.NET.  As Ian nicely states, before chosing a technology you need to resolve the Reach vs Fidelity issue.  Flash is another consideration.

Tim’s blog also answers the question about the difference between WPF on XP and Vista.
