Flex developers use relatively new technology called Flex that is based on Macromedia Flash. A cross-platform and cross-browser technology, Flex development services are used to create rich internet applications and user interface. Flex developers are attracted towards this technology for the main reason that it is an open source technology and does not require license fee. Therefore, it is a cost-effective option for the developers. The applications to be developed using Flex requires three essential things: development environment, testing environment and production environment.
The development stage of the applications is comprised of modern and yet time-tested architecture involving XML and MXML markup language. Highly professional Flex developers use ActionScrpit — flash player core language — to achieve interactivity. ActionScript is based on the ECMAScript standard. Usually, tools that are used in Flex development applications involve Flex SDK 3, Flex SDK 4 with Adobe Flash Builder.
