Adobe's Eclipse-Based Flex Builder 2 Now Mac-Compatible

"With Flex Builder for the Mac more exciting and more engaging experiences will be in reach for greater numbers of people"

Adobe's Eclipse-based Flex Builder 2 last month shipped in a version for Macintosh Platform. "The response to Flex Builder from the Mac developer community has been overwhelming and positive," said Jeff Whatcott, vice president marketing and business development for Adobe's Enterprise and Developer Business Unit. "More and more," Whatcott continued, "the Web is about experiences. With Flex Builder for the Mac more exciting and more engaging experiences will be in reach for greater numbers of people, regardless of their development platform."

Flex Builder 2 for Macintosh is an extension of the powerful Adobe toolset for designing and deploying a new class of rich Internet applications. The release of Flex Builder 2 for the Macintosh is aimed at helping developers and designers build engaging Web applications that combine the benefits of desktop software with the reach of the Web.

Its powerful Eclipse-based IDE combines powerful ActionScript and MXML editors, a visual UI designer, and integrated debugging. With the free license version of the Flex 2 SDK, developers have everything they need to build and deploy complete RIAs with no software licensing costs. Adobe Flex Builder 2 is available for an estimated street price of US$499. Adobe Flex Builder 2 with Charting is available for an estimated street price of US$749.
