Adobe and Salesforce.com have partnered to launch the Adobe Flash Builder for force.com, which Adobe says increases developer productivity for creating rich Internet applications in the cloud. The product can be used to enhance existing Salesforce CRM implementations and custom-built Force.com apps, or build new apps altogether.

"Flash Builder for Force.com is a jointly developed IDE that provides a single, powerful tool for building cloud-based RIAs, which can easily be deployed to end users through the browser using the Adobe Flash Player or directly to the desktop via Adobe AIR," explains Michelle Perkins on the Adobe Flash Platform blog. "This tight integration enables client-side data management and synchronization between cloud and client, simplifying the development of applications that seamlessly run online or offline across operating systems and devices, while taking full advantage of the proven scalability, security and reliability of the Force.com platform."

You can get an idea of what the product is about in the following introduction video.

Features include:

- Professional Eclipse-based IDE, unifying Adobe Flash Builder and the Force.com IDE into a common, highly productive environment for building a variety of Force.com applications.

- Code-editor, design-view, browser and cross platform compatibility.

- User interface capabilities with more than 100 easily customized, reusable components, including access to motion graphics, drag and drop capabilities and more.

- Data visualizations including built-in interactive charting and animation components capable of processing large data sets.

- Pre-built integration with Adobe LiveCycle Data Services for client-side data management and synchronization services, automatically synchronizing data between the Force.com database and an Adobe AIR secure local data store on the client, allowing developers to build apps that seamlessly span connected and disconnected environments.

Final delivery for the product is expected to go down in the first half of next year. A developer preview version is currently available at the Salesforce developer site.
