I take inspiration by the excellent tutorial Napolux , Flex 3 and Adobe AIR APIs Feedburner , which shows how to write a simple application (or widget) Adobe AIR using Flex 3, to show how to accomplish the same thing using Adobe Flash CS3. If you wish, also, you can take advantage of the extension for creating Adobe AIR applications. It is not necessary for the purposes of this tutorial, compile your AIR application as an executable, you can use the code proposed as a simple Flash movie "affix" to your Web pages

Google Chrome allows you to create desktop applications from a Web page? In fact, as indicated in the menu item, it is simply allowed to create a shortcut to a shortcut that - in turn - opens a window without the address bar and without all the "frills" of the browser. This does not mean that we have created a desktop application, we only created a link to the same Google Chrome mode - so to speak-chrome-less.
Feature simle, but more ambitious, had already been proposed by the Mozilla Foundation in 2007, through the project Prism . This is definitely the most versatile and articulate, also accompanied by a useful extension that allows you to create desktop applications menu of FireFox, like Google Chrome .
However, both solutions are far from the technology Adobe AIR . Before anyone mistake them it is worth noting the differences between a desktop shortcut that opens a window with a menu and a desktop application real hard.
Adobe AIR , in fact, unlike the solutions offered by Google Chrome and Prism allows you to:
- Virtually complete access to the system running the application, with the ability to read and write files. Possibility to extend its functionality through DLLs (dynamic link library), extensions, and third-party products such as SHU Player (see Deploying Adobe AIR applications: by AIR Badges Player to SHU )
- Manages the application as the other system applications: Install and Uninstall
In Actionscript 3.0 for beginners: lesson # 1 we saw the necessary steps for creating a project in Flash CS3. So I came up with the idea of automating, somehow, this process due to the features of Adobe AIR .
Adobe AIR applications have the advantage of being relatively small in file size thanks to the installation of separate Adobe AIR 1.0 runtime libraries . This advantage, however, it can become a real problem when you are ready to deploy an Adobe AIR application, both on the network (ie the browser) either on a rigid support such as a CD / DVD.
I created this little Adobe AIR application for all fans of the SuperEnaLotto. This application, very funny, you can:
- Generate six sextuplets (with or without repetitions) to play
- To enter or generate a sestina and check how many times you should play to make 3, 4, 5 or 6
Obviously if someone ever make a nice 6 with this "play" remember me with a small donation
Turning on various blog (thanks Frank) and thanks to discussions with Julius , I realized that, in addition to the extreme interest in Adobe AIR , there is also a lot of confusion, and rightly so. Both developers and users continue to not be clear about what it is, what it is for and how it is developed in Adobe AIR . I decided, therefore, to collect the various discussions in this sort of FAQ to try to clear a little 'what actually is hiding behind Adobe AIR.

A total makeover to my studio ! To be enjoyed especially the part where I put the latest work efforts, prototypes and logo-facelift
I "resurrected" my article written a few 'years ago. I've slightly revised, updating a little bit here and there, but I think it is still relevant and interesting.
What is a development language? A computer, alias PC (Personal Computer), has a language of its staff. This language is called machine code, to mean that every machine, so any computer (PC compatible, Apple, Unix, etc ...), it has one exclusive owner. The programs that we see "turn" on our PC are mainly carried out by the mysterious object called a microprocessor. This is the heart, the intelligent unit, of each electronic processor. In reality, an application is not executed only by the microprocessor but leans, so to say, in what is called the operating system: a layer software provided by the manufacturer of the machine (see, for example, the Apple Macintosh).
