Open source Flex 4 makes it possible to reach new levels in social networking

The updated open source Flex 4 framework, also now available, includes a new component architecture for RIAs providing complete separation of appearance and functionality, enabling each to be changed independently without affecting the other.

The new skinning and component architecture, code-named Spark, builds on top of the existing MX architecture, providing a much more efficient mechanism for developers and designers to work together to control the appearance of their Flex applications.

Data centric approach is possible through this.

Introspect Java PHP, Adobe Cold Fusion, REST, and SOAP services will display methods and properties in the new Data/Service Explorer

FXPs contain functional UI elements, including MXML, Action Script language coding, component skins, and graphical assets, enabling developers to focus on core application logic. This can be done by importing adobe flex projects.

You can generate a detailed audit trail of all data passed between the local Flex application and the back end, assisting with debugging and performance tuning.

Display comments in MXML and Action Script editors using AS Doc.
