RIA in a new avtar with Flash Builder 4

Adobe Flash Builder, formerly Flex Builder is already out with beta tag at present. Personally, I dislike the renamed brand as Flash Builder. Already, many have misconception that Flash and Flex are similar! The only common point is that both supports ActionScript (ECMA 335), but so what? Application of both suits are totally different. Of course, the SDK brand remains same, Flex SDK version 4, Gumbo.

It is near to Adobe’s Creative Suite family. In Flash Builder 4, you can work with Flash MovieClip, import designs from Catalyst. So is pointer in that direction.

Data centric features are really attractive, be it data binding or data object like Hibrnate in java, representing data as POJO. But, this is limited to CRUD only. Flex 4 has backward compatibility – with halo components!

Features with newer IDE is welcomed, especially network monitor. This eliminates need of httpfox and such third party browser plug-in!

Overall, Flex 4 seems to be reached to the community expectations! 🙂 Here is something more. Tim Buntel says this.
