For users of Flash Builder who are comfortable working with programming languages and who understand server-side web programming, Labriola et al., who develop Internet applications, instruct on and work with Flex and Adobe products, and train users in the software, explain how to build applications using Adobe Flex 4 for the Flash platform. Through 18 lessons, they describe how Flex applications should be built, the relationship between the two languages used (MXML and ActionScript), how to load data into applications, how to use the Flex components and write them, the performance implications of the code, and practices that should be used to write code that is scalable, manageable, and reusable.
