Join James Talbot, as he reviews the new features in Adobe Flex, Flash Builder, and AIR for mobile application developers. This course covers the Spark components for building mobile user interfaces in the Flex SDK, and the AIR support for native extensions, which enable applications to use parts of the host operating systems that were previously unavailable. The course also describes new testing and network monitoring capabilities available with Flash Builder 4.6, and the ability for Android applications to be deployed without relying on a separate runtime.
If you're a Premium lynda.com subscriber, you will have access to the exercise files for use throughout this title. After you download them, place them on your desktop for easy access. Inside of that folder are all of the exercise files needed for each chapter. You can see that there is a Snippets folder, and inside of the Snippets folder are just some text files that you can cut and paste from to save on typing when you're adding code to your application. You can also see we also have all of the finished solution files located in the Solution folder, and then the starting files that I'll tell you to use when you're actually developing your applications are located in the Starting folder.
If you don't have access to the exercise files, don't worry. You can still follow along by creating your own assets.
