About this Book
It’s possible that some readers will still feel that we’ve tried to cover too much territory by including both Flash and Flex coverage in one book. That is a fair critique. By including both, we necessarily had to compromise at certain points, opting to show code examples more suitable for Flash at some times and code examples more suitable for Flex at other times. Although this can be seen as a weakness, we also see it as a strength. We think this provides a greater context for understanding AIR, and it allows you to make better decisions about how best to solve a problem when building AIR applications. Ultimately, you’ll make up your own mind about whether our approach works well or not, but we certainly encourage you to view the book from our perspective.
