Publisher Comments:

Thoroughly vetted by Adobe's AIR development team, Adobe AIR 1.5 Cookbook addresses fundamentals, best practices, and topics that web developers and application designers inquire about most. The hands-on recipes in this cookbook help you solve a variety of tasks and scenarios you may encounter using Adobe AIR to build Rich Internet Applications for the desktop. It's an ideal way to learn the nuances of Adobe AIR, with practical solutions you can use right away, and detailed explanations of why and how they work. These recipes will help you:

  • Build an AIR application with Flex, Flash, or HTML and Ajax
  • Create a database and connect it to your application
  • Put together native menus for PCs and Macs
  • Work with the Service Monitor Framework
  • Utilize the Adobe AIR Update Framework
  • Create branded desktop experiences with custom chrome and custom application icons
  • Distribute your AIR application with the Seamless Install Badge

And more. Adobe AIR 1.5 Cookbook includes dozens of recipes from rising stars in the AIR development community-David Tucker, Rich Tretola, Marco Casario, and Koen De Weggheleire-along with the best solutions posted by visitors to the Adobe AIR Cookbook community website hosted by Adobe and O'Reilly (www.adobe.com/go/air_cookbook). If you're ready to expand your skill set with Adobe AIR, this is the book you've been waiting for.

Book News Annotation:

For intermediate-level developers, this reference explains how to use Adobe AIR 1.5 to build Rich Internet Applications for the desktop in each of the three development environments: Flash, Flex, and JavaScript. Tucker et al. who develop rich internet applications and teach Flash, Flex, and AIR, describe basic information on developing applications and application settings; working with APIs that are included with AIR, including the file system, a network monitoring framework, and the embedded SQLite database; and distributing and updating applications, including using the AIR Update Framework and install badges. Every explanation details the problem and solution and contains code for each development environment. An additional chapter on developing mashup AIR applications is available online. The book is not meant for those who are new to ActionScript 3 or JavaScript. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Now that Adobe AIR has been in alpha/beta for a year, and in official release for two months -and now that Rich Internet Application design and development has become a staple of business growth strategy in many circles -there 's a rapidly growing circle of developers who have begun using it themselves, and who are eager to expand their skill sets. Adobe AIR Cookbook is for them.
