Product Information


Adobe Flash Builder 4 (formerly Adobe Flex Builder) software is designed to help software developers rapidly develop cross-platform rich Internet applications (RIAs) and content using the open source Flex framework. It includes support for intelligent coding, debugging, and visual design and features powerful testing tools that speed up development and lead to higher performing applications.


Data-centric development:

  • Bind methods to UI components using a simple drag-and-drop approach
  • Integration with Adobe Flash Catalyst:

  • Import Flex Projects (FXPs) created using Adobe Flash Catalyst software, saving time and improving the quality of the user experience
  • FXPs contain functional UI elements, including MXML, ActionScript language coding, component skins, and graphical assets, enabling developers to focus on core application logic
  • Network Monitor:

  • Break out of a loop during a debugging session using run to line
