Adobe Announces Availability of Adobe Flex 2

Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced the availability of the Adobe Flex 2 product line and Adobe Flash Player 9, and introduced a new tiered licensing model to bring the power of Flex development within reach of every application developer. With powerful tools based on Eclipse, a robust data services offering, and the introduction of the free Adobe Flex 2 Software Development Kit (SDK), Adobe is equipping developers to build a new class of rich Internet applications with improved usability and effectiveness.

Category leaders across various industries - including Boeing, Dow Jones Indexes, Samsung and SAP - have been actively using Adobe Flex software and the Flash Player to build next generation Web applications that combine the benefits of desktop software with the reach of the Web to create more valuable user experiences.

The Flex 2 product line provides developers with a comprehensive, integrated set of tools and technology for fast, end-to-end development of rich and innovative web applications. With the Flex 2 SDK and Flex Data Services 2 Express, a single-CPU production license that provides message-based data management services, developers have everything they need to build and deploy complete rich Internet applications with no software licensing costs. For increased productivity, developers can use Flex Builder 2, an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that includes a library of built-in controls and services for application development and UI design. Flex Data Services 2 empowers developers to create data-intensive applications that include real time data synchronization and collaboration capabilities.

Additionally, Flash Player 9 provides a more secure, lightweight, and robust runtime environment for enterprise-ready rich Internet applications. Flash Player 9 offers Flex developers up to 10 times faster performance through ActionScript 3.0 and a new ActionScript Virtual Machine (AVM), making it a suited client runtime for next generation rich Internet applications.
