Editorial Review

Adobe Flex Builder 3 Standard software is a productive Eclipse based development tool for creating rich Internet applications for Adobe Flash Player or Adobe AIR, enabling intelligent coding, interactive step-through debugging, and visual layout and design of the user interface.

Content Assist displays code completion hints as you enter MXML, ActionScript, and CSS code.

In MXML Design mode, you interact with your Flex applications visually; dragging and dropping components on to the design area, selecting and resizing components, and so on.

When you create a project, Flex Builder switches into the Development perspective so you can begin developing your application



Top reasons to buy Adobe Flex Builder 3
  • Powerful coding tools: Take advantage of editors for MXML, ActionScript, and CSS; syntax coloring; statement completion; code collapse; interactive step-through debugging; and more.

  • Rich visual layout: Visually design and preview user interface layout, appearance, and behavior using a rich library of built-in components. Create or extend those components easily if you need to.

  • Interactive data visualization: Create data dashboards and interactive data analysis by simply dragging and dropping a chart type and linking it to a data source using the Flex Charting library.

  • Skinning and styling: Customize the appearance of an application using CSS and graphical property editors to quickly set the most commonly used properties and preview the results in Design view.

  • Integration with Creative Suite 3: Import ready-to-use creative assets directly into Flex quickly and easily with new Flex Skin Design extensions for Adobe Flash, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Fireworks software.

  • Code refactoring: Find references to classes, variables, and methods, and rename them easily.

  • Native support for Adobe AIR: Build desktop applications with the same skills and codebase as your RIAs with new desktop components and Adobe AIR development tools.

  • Powerful testing tools: Use memory and performance profilers to investigate memory use and analyze where applications are using resources.

  • Advanced data services: Invoke web services or request XML data via HTTP using a rich, built-in library of data access services. Use open-source BlazeDS to easily connect applications to back-end services, leveraging Remoting and AMF, a binary, high-performance HTTP-based data transport. You can also add real-time data push and pub/sub messaging.

  • Open-source framework: Beginning with Flex 3, the entire Flex framework is now available as an open-source project. Flex Remoting and Flex Messaging are also available as open source in BlazeDS.

Flex Overview
Flex is a free, open source framework for building highly interactive, 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. MXML, a declarative XML-based language, is used to describe UI layout and behaviors, and ActionScript 3, a powerful OO programming language is used to create client logic. Flex also includes a rich component library with over 100 proven, extensible UI components for creating RIAs, as well as an interactive Flex application debugger.

Rich Internet applications created with Flex can run in the browser using the ubiquitous Adobe Flash¨ Player software or on the desktop on Adobe AIRª. This enables Flex applications to run consistently across all major browsers and across operating systems on the desktop. And using Adobe AIR, the cross-operating system runtime, Flex applications can now access local data and system resources on the desktop.

You can accelerate application development with Adobe Flex Builder 3, a highly productive, Eclipseª based development environment, and Adobe Live Cycle Data Services ES, a set of advanced data services that can be used in Flex development. Both of these products are available for purchase.
