Adobe Flex is a collection of technologies released by Adobe Systems for the development and deployment of cross platform, rich Internet applications based on the proprietary Adobe Flash platform. The initial release in March 2004 by Macromedia included a software development kit, an IDE, and a J2EE integration application known as Flex Data Services. Since Adobe acquired Macromedia in 2005, subsequent releases of Flex no longer require a license for Flex Data Services, which has become a separate product rebranded as LiveCycle Data Services.

If you need help with respect to training, there a number of resources available. First and foremost, instructor lead training is available throughout the world. Adobe provides a certified curriculum set to the highest standards. Certified Instructors provide the materials and additional insights into materials.

Things to be careful of when selecting the right partner.
<li>Be wary of companies that simply provide training! Make sure the instructor you receive has been in the field in last 6 months
<li>Make sure they are certified by Adobe. There are plenty of Non-certified courses out there. You will get what you pay for.
<li>Spend time in the technology before you get to class.

    Adobe Flex 3

    ==Flex and ColdFusion==
    Flex 2 offers special integration with ColdFusion MX 7. The ColdFusion MX 7.0.2 release adds updated Flash Remoting to support ActionScript 3, a Flex Data Services event gateway, and the Flex Data Services assembler. Flex Builder 2 also adds extensions for ColdFusion providing a set of wizards for RAD Flex development. A subset of Flex 1.5 is also embedded into ColdFusion MX 7 middleware platform, for use in the ColdFusion Flash forms feature. It is possible to use this framework to write rich internet applications, although its intended purpose is for rich forms only.

    Flex Application Development Process

    Everything below is directly sourced from the help file in version 2.0 Beta 3:
  • Define an application interface using a set of pre-defined components (forms, buttons, and so on)
  • Arrange components into a user interface design
  • Use styles and themes to define the visual design
  • Add dynamic behavior (one part of the application interacting with another, for example)
  • Define and connect to data services as needed
  • Build the source code into an SWF file that runs in the Flash Player
