Flex 4 is a huge update, and its combination with Flash Catalyst and AIR 2.0 has
broadened the possibilities both on the authoring side and the publishing. It is
now a simple matter to create Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) that seamlessly
merge designer-led user interfaces with developer-led interactions and data inte-
gration. AdvancED Flex 4 covers all aspects of the Flex project lifecycle from the
workflow enhancements of Flash Catalyst to integrating with data services and
web 2.0 APIs, to testing and securing the final product.
Using a practical hands-on approach, the book illustrates exactly how to create
robust and scalable enterprise-grade RIAs. It includes tutorials on data binding,
building Flex themes with Illustrator and Flash Catalyst, creating AIR 2.0-powered
desktop and mobile applications, and optimizing designer and developer work-
flow with Flash Catalyst.
You will also learn about the benefits of a Test-Driven Development process,
and effectively integrating Flex 4 with Java, PHP, SOAP, and other server- and
will be ready to create applications that can use Ajax and Flex 4 together. The final
part of the book is a unique and eclectic mix of advanced topics including mash-
ups, migrating existing web content to RIAs, Flash platform security, 3D rendering
using Papervision3D, and audio and video streaming.
Through reading this book, you will benefit from the wealth of information
and years of experience the authors hold, and will build on your existing knowl-
edge to take your Flex skills to the next level. Whether you’re a Flex 4 beginner
or an intermediate user, this book provides all the information you need to
become a real expert.

I would like to dedicate my work on this book to my dear wife, Caren, and my two adorable sons, Ayaan
I would like to dedicate this book to two people who have helped and inspired me in the past few years:
Shashank Tiwari and Eric Feminella.
Shashank is one of the most prominent figures in the Flex and Java communities. I met Shashank Tawiri
over two years ago and have had the pleasure to co-author AdvancedFlex 3 with him. In addition, we have
spoken together at conferences and worked together to create cutting edge Flex applications. Shashank
has inspired me in many ways, has shown me the importance of being involved in the Flash community
and has motivated me to write the AdvancedFlex 3 book. Most importantly, he been a true friend. Check
his blog here: www.shanky.org/ and follow him on Twitter: @tshanky
I would also like to thank Eric Feminella who has inspired me, mentored me and helped me to become a
better Flex Architect. I had the pleasure of working with Eric at Weight Watchers three years ago and I
have found that Eric is one of the smartest, yet extremely humble, people I have ever met. He has a deep
understanding in OOP, Architecting Flex apps, as well as RIA in general. Check his blog here:
and follow him on Twitter:
Last, but not least, I would like to dedicate the book to my wife Jordana, our 2 year old daughter Romi
Scarlett and our new addition, 6 week old Ariel Rocco. Writing a book takes time away from my family and
I want to thank them for putting up with me while I had to work long nights and weekends to complete this
Writing a book is a long process and as James Michener said,
"I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent re-writer."
