With ESRI's announcement of not supporting .Net WebADF, I've been testing out different APIs and I am kind a getting comfortable using Javascript API. I specially like it fact that I an easily add GIS functionalities to asp.net pages and be able to mingle around with server side stuff...
My question is.. is Javascript API going to be around for a long time. I've built about half dozen of large WebADF apps and about half dozen smaller apps, and I will have to port all these apps to something else soon.
I don't want to make a mistake again by selecting wrong API and having to do it all over again.

I don't know the percentage, but seems like FLEX and Silverlight is whole lot more popular than Javascript API.

Also, do any of you not comfortable about your code visible to anyone who cares to look at it.
I have mixed feeling about it.
