Go AIR

Now there is no need to use IIIrd party components for making a Flash Application as a Desktop Application.

Adobe® AIR™, formerly code-named Apollo, is a cross-operating system runtime that allows developers to use their existing web development skills to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop.

AIR is a cross-operating system runtime being developed by Adobe that allows developers to leverage their existing web development skills (Flash, Flex, HTML, JavaScript, Ajax) to build and deploy rich Internet applications (RIAs) to the desktop.

Supported Operating Systems:

  • Windows Windows XP SP2
  • Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
  • Macintosh Mac OS 10.4.8 and 10.4.9 (Intel and PowerPC)

The Adobe AIR beta includes the SQLite embedded database for use by Adobe AIR applications.

Adobe AIR 1.0 will not have built in support for communicating directly with databases. However, it will be possible to write Database drivers in ActionScript (leveraging binary or XML sockets), which would allow Adobe AIR applications to communicate directly with a database (both local and remote).

Adobe AIR will provide a set of APIs to make it easy to develop connected applications that work while offline.

AIR APIs are only exposed to Flash content via ActionScript 3 / AVM2, and thus Flash 8 / AVM1 SWFs will be able to run, but they will not have direct access to the Adobe AIR APIs.
