    extended case studies

    The attraction of this book is the collection of 11 extended examples. Each is a case study in how to use AIR to code desktop applications. There is a slight irony here in the trajectory taken by Adobe. Its original products, and probably still its main revenue sources, were for desktop usages. Think Postscript and PDF. But the rise of the Web caused it to develop Flash for web applications. Now here, we come back to the desktop. The book's examples involve Java as the programming language. Extensive usage is also made of XML and HTML. You are encouraged to use the examples as a basis for modification for your own needs. The examples are verbose, but luckily you can also get these from the accompanying website. The examples do vary in their complexity. You may want to pay especial attention to the Map application. This involves accessing a SQL database that comes with AIR. The code shows how to make the necessary tables. If you have in mind a 'serious' application with lots of data, then often you'll need a SQL database for it. The example here shows that this can be straightforward.
