The Laszlo system is pretty slick. I've seen their presentation at a
Macromedia conference before and chatted with some of the folks about
their stuff (I even got a free shirt :-). This was the same
conference where Macromedia announced that they were working on
Flex. If you have to design web applications in Flash this is a
great way to approach it.
Alas, the problem remains that you are just editing text files,
compiling, testing, etc. I found this process to be tedious. In
fact, it is one of the main reasons I moved away from Flash for the
web connected GUIs I work on, once I realized what Revolution could
do. The Revolution approach of being able to interact with your
controls and data in the dev environment is such a time saver IMO.
