Adobe Integrated Runtime & Flex 3

[ Business]

Adobe Apollo is now AIR – Adobe Integrated Runtime and the easiest way to develop for AIR is Flex Builder 3 (beta). The Flex 3 SDK is also available on Adobe Labs with nightly builds as well as a public bugbase.

There are quite a few changes between the Apollo Alpha (aka "M3") and the new AIR (aka "M4") builds so you’ll have to make some source code changes to rebuild your Apollo apps. It’s not a big deal – I had my Apollo app – an administrative console for a website – up and running as an AIR app in just a few minutes. Despite the new Flex 3 SDK, my (recompiled) Flex apps and my new AIR app seem to work just fine with my existing CFMX 7 and CF 8 sites.

And tomorrow I get a whole day of training on AIR so I’ll have more to say in the next few days.
