With Adobe AIR the Adobe Integrated Runtime web developers use their

existing Flash, Flex, and Ajax skills to build rich, cross-platform desktop

applications. Adobe AIR in Action is a compact, example-driven tutorial that

introduces and illuminates Adobe AIR.


Adobe AIR is one of the hottest topics in rich application development. This

exciting new technology is still in beta, but it's already being adopted by such

web giants as eBay. With AIR, web developers use their existing skills to build

rich applications that flow seamlessly between the Internet and the desktop.

Adobe AIR in Action introduces AIR to developers familiar with Flex and

JavaScript, showing them how to build solid AIR-driven desktop and hybrid

applications. Using small examples, the expert authors walk web developers

through the new topics they will need to develop AIR applications for the

desktop. Readers will learn the essential features of the AIR API with examples

and code samples that web professionals can use to get up and running in AIR

quickly. The book describes how to create and customize native windows and

how to read and write files and folders on the local file system.

Web developers who read this book will be able to take instant advantage of the

increased resources available to desktop applications. Sometimes-connected,

web-enabled applications are gaining in popularity, and web developers of all

stripes will want to add these skills to their toolbox.


Easy-to-follow tutorial approach

Covers desktop and hybrid desktop/web application styles

Designed for Flex, Flash, Actionscript, and Javascript developers

Every chapter walks readers through several code examples
