Rich Internet Applications with Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR

mikepotter's picture
mikepotter - Fri, 02/01/2008 - 10:28am

Companies like eBay, AOL and are using Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR to build engaging rich Internet applications in the browser and on the desktop.

Adobe Flex 3 is a highly productive, open source framework for building and maintaining expressive web applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops and operating systems. It provides a modern, standards-based language and programming model that supports common design patterns and includes an Eclipse™ based development environment; advanced data services; and a fast, enterprise-class client runtime based on ubiquitous Adobe Flash® Player software. Flex enables developers to create highly interactive, expressive applications that dramatically enhance user experience, increasing customer satisfaction and user productivity.

Applications written with Adobe Flex can easily connect to a Drupal powered server using the Services module. To see this in action, head to the Flex Showcase at Powered by Drupal and Flex, the Flex Showcase allows developers to easily add their own Flex powered applications and share them with the world.

Adobe AIR is a cross-operating system runtime that lets developers combine HTML, AJAX, Flash and Flex to deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop. Adobe AIR allows developers to use familiar tools such as Dreamweaver, Flex Builder, Flash CS3, Aptana Studio, and even Notepad to build their application and easily deliver a single application installer that works across operating systems. Developers using Adobe AIR can build highly engaging, visually rich applications and combine the power of local resources and data with the reach of the web.
