Flash Builder 4

14 May 2010
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Flash Builder 4, newly recruited into the Adobe Creative Suite for the release of CS5, is essentially a program for building interfaces that collect data (through forms) and present data (through views) from server databases. Previously called Flex Builder, the program is a distant cousin of Flash Professional, but a close fit with the new Flash Catalyst CS5 ( ).
  • Pros: Built around the powerful Flex coding tools., Standardized Eclipse development platform., Spark skinning tools (for design)., Easier database connections., Friendly design tools for formatting data collection and presentation elements., Integrates smoothly with Flash Catalyst.
  • Cons: Coder-centric environment has steep learning curve., Software is for coding experts only., No export to mobile devices., Powerful testing and coding features are available only in the Premium edition (which does not ship with CS5).
