    Any news on Mac OS X support of Workshop Studio? My license is gathering dust.. Also, of some interest is that in latest beta of IDEA there is the beginnings of Flex support. Seems that the Adobe boys are going to get some heavy weight competition.. /Henri Karapuu
  3. Licensing Pricing?[ Go to top ]

    Any info on how this will be licensed? what would be the cost of the combined IDE?

    You can download and use the SDK for free. The SDK can be used in any IDE because your just writing xml files. The mxml files can bee compiled using ant as the sdk includes ant tasks for automating the flex compiler. I have flex2 integrated into JDeveloper and it works really well. I don't have code completion, but big deal as the flex docs, which are quite good, make it easy to find what you need. Also since compile is done by ANT the compile errors are displayed in the IDE. My ant tasks include the swf file in my war and away you go. I like flex a lot, but I'm not sure I would pay for it.

    the combined cost would be 999.00 / user seat, and we're hoping it will be available by the end of the month. This will be quite a bit cheaper than buying the two products individually. (adobe flex with charting is around 749.00/seat)
