AIR [ActionScript]


This is an implementation of the PropertyCross application using Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR), the SDK for which is freely available from Adobe. It also uses the Flex and Parsley frameworks, both of which are also freely available from Apache and Spicefactory.

AIR allows you to develop Android and iOS applications using ActionScript. It uses the Flash Player virtual machine (with an extended API) to abstract away from the underlying hardware, with access to device capabilities such as GPS and camera. It also allows custom native extensions to be bundled and accessed through the virtual machine.

Flex is an enterprise application framework for the Flash Player virtual machine providing UI components (and an associated UI framework), binding, advanced data structures and other essential utilities. It also introduces the MXML language to allow the declarative creation of user interfaces.

Parsley is an inversion-of-control framework for ActionScript providing amongst other things dependency injection and a messaging framework, allowing for better separation of concerns.
