Overview

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, 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.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

Of the seven titles I have purchased since the release of Adobe AIR runtime and Flex 3 this has to be the more useful.

The authors did a wonderful job in presentation, using real world examples that can be modified to put into real world programs allowing you a fuller understanding of the Adobe AIR environment and its application in programming today.

Now I hope they come out with an even more in-depth book as a follow up to this one as there is so much more detail to cover on this subject.

If you are beginning AIR development I recommend this book be added to your library for reference.
