Adobe rolls out Flash Builder 4, ColdFusion Builder IDE

updated 09:45 am EDT, Mon March 22, 2010

Flash Builder replaces older Flex app

Adobe has formally launched Flash Builder 4, a new suite of web development tools. The software replaces Flex Builder, which was originally intended to aid only with rich Internet applications based on the Flex framework. Flash Builder is said to have improved coding and testing features, as well as support for the future Flash Catalyst design/development bridge.

Accompanying the software is the Flex 4 framework, which introduces the Spark skinning and component architecture. The technology breaks appearance apart from an app's underlying design, allowing changes to one or the other without having to manage code as a whole. The Premium version of Flash Builder is meanwhile being paired with the new ColdFusion Builder IDE, an Eclipse-based IDE for app development founded on the ColdFusion server platform.

Flash Builder 4 Standard costs $249. The Premium edition is $699, and beyond ColdFusion Builder IDE includes testing tools. Releasing separately is the Flash Platform Social Service, which makes it possible to link Flash apps to 14 networks -- including Facebook, MySpace, Google and Twitter -- using a single interface.

    Wrong pricing

    Wonder where you guys got your figures -- you go to the Adobe site, and it's $299 -- and that's just the UPGRADE pricing.
