yFiles FLEX Product Types

Looking for a web-based diagramming solution?

Have a look at our JavaScript / HTML5 diagramming library yFiles for HTML, which we recommend instead of yFiles FLEX for any new development and if you don't need to use Flash for other reasons.

Product Types

yFiles FLEX is available in three different editions.

yFiles FLEX Client provides sophisticated client-side graph visualization and editing, and can be combined with the optional yFiles FLEX Client Layout Extension for client-side automatic layout.

Or for server-side layout, consider our two server bundle options: yFiles FLEX Java Server Bundle and yFiles FLEX .NET Server Bundle. Each includes the yFiles FLEX Client as well as a server component that provides state-of-the-art automatic graph layout and analysis.
