Flash Builder, formerly Flex Builder, enables rapid creation of rich Internet applications (RIAs) based on the Flash platform and Adobe AIR applications. Flash Builder provides a rich Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for visual design and coding and comes with a whole host of powerful features to speed up your development.

What's new in Flash Builder 4.6

Adobe AIR Native Extensions

Take advantage of Adobe AIR Native Extensions to pair native C, Objective-C and Java libraries with your ActionScript and Flex code. This makes it possible to add platform specific features to your applications that leverage the native APIs of Apple iOS, Android and the Blackberry Playbook.

Unit testing for mobile applications

Supports the FlexUnit unit testing framework for mobile projects. Execute tests live on a connected device over a WiFi connection.

Monitor network activity for mobile applications

When debugging your device over a WiFi connection, you can monitor all the network data that is being sent and received.

Captive runtime

A new feature of Adobe AIR 3 provides the ability to embed the runtime in your final application. It removes the requirement for users to have AIR pre-installed on their computer or device.

What's new in Flash Builder 4.5

Mobile app development

Build standalone Flex/ActionScript applications for one or more mobile platforms (Android, BlackBerry, or iOS). Design and code views support mobile development using mobile-ready components. Test mobile applications on the desktop using a mobile Adobe AIR runtime emulator, or test on locally connected mobile devices using a one-click process to package, deploy, and launch. Deploy, package, and sign required resources as platform-specific installer files for upload to a mobile application distribution site or store.

Metadata code completion

Benefit from metadata code completion that enhances existing content assist functionality by providing suggestions for both Adobe Flex Software Development Kit (SDK) and custom metadata tags.

Code generation and templates

Use QuickAssist/Fix to rename and manipulate variables, generate getters/setters and event handlers, organise imports, and more. Use the override/implements feature to define methods from a superclass or interface. Plus use over 100 new best-practice code templates (aka snippets) for ActionScript, MXML, and CSS.

Invalid reference live highlighting

See references to invalid variables, methods, classes, and interfaces as you are typing in the code editor, and then use the Quick Assist/Fix features to generate stub code.

Bidirectional designer/developer workflow

Take advantage of new support in Flash Builder 4.5 and Flash Catalyst CS5.5 that enables designers to open, make changes to, and save Flex projects that were either created or previously edited in Flash Builder.

Roundtrip editing in Flash Catalyst

Use the new edit in Flash Catalyst feature to quickly make changes to component skins. Changes made in Flash Catalyst CS5.5 are automatically reflected in Flash Builder.

Improved large-application performance - available in Premium editions

See up to a 65% reduction for refactoring operations on projects with a large number of dependent libraries, a significant reduction in memory used when profiling complex applications, and improved profiler responsiveness.

Updated platform support

Take advantage of new platform support for Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) and the standard Eclipse for Java distribution; the Cocoa version of Eclipse on Mac OS X; and Adobe Flash Player 10.1, Adobe AIR 2.5, and Flex SDK 4.5.

New Spark components

Use powerful new Spark components in Flex SDK 4.5, including the new Spark Datagrid, Form, and Image controls for web/desktop applications. Plus rapidly prototype user interface elements and build component business logic by creating custom Spark component classes. Then use Flash Catalyst to convert visual artwork and skin components.

Integrated copy of Zend Studio 8 - available in PHP editions

Create Flex/PHP projects using a wizard, introspect PHP classes, and debug using the integrated debugger. Develop, test, and debug faster, troubleshoot issues quickly, and improve team collaboration.

Design View improvements

Speed up development with Design View enhancements such as rendering improvements for complex projects, auto-collapse of data-binding expressions, warnings for incompatible SWCs, visual feedback for drag/drop operations, and improved performance.

Powerful coding tools

Adobe Flash Builder is a powerful Eclipse based IDE that includes editors for MXML, ActionScript and CSS, as well as syntax colouring, statement completion, code collapse, interactive step-through debugging, code generation and more.

Create mobile apps

Build standalone Flex/ActionScript applications for one or more mobile platforms (Android, BlackBerry, or iOS). Design and Code views support mobile development using mobile-ready components. Test mobile applications on the desktop using a mobile Adobe AIR runtime emulator, or test on locally connected mobile devices using a one-click process to package, deploy, and launch.

Rich visual layout

Visually design and preview user interface layout, appearance, and behaviour using a rich library of built-in components. Extend the built-in components or create new ones as needed.

Powerful data visualisation

All editions of Flash Builder support data visualisation components including bar, line, area, pie charts and more along with an advanced data grid that supports column reordering, sorting and filtering.

Integration with Creative Suite

Import design assets created using Adobe Creative Suite components such as Adobe Flash Professional, Illustrator, Photoshop, or Fireworks, or import a complete application user interface created using the Adobe Flash Catalyst interaction design tool.

Advanced Debugger and Testing Tools - Available in Premium editions

The included debugger supports a range of features including breakpoints, conditional breakpoints, watches, run-to-line debugging and much more. A Network Monitor and other advanced testing tools in the Premium edition help to ensure your RIA's function as expected.

Integrated Zend Studio - Available in PHP editions

Create Flex/PHP projects using a wizard, introspect PHP classes, and debug using the integrated debugger. Develop, test, and debug faster, troubleshoot issues quickly, and improve team collaboration.

And much more

Flash Builder comes with many more features such as advanced refactoring for ActionScript code, capabilities to create custom Flash components, comprehensive styling support, and more.
