Develop Flex Applications in Visual Studio
One of my colleague is developing a web interface featuring couple of RIA components. He has chosen Silverlight for its “buzz”, “light-ness” and its support of languages like C# and so forth. I engaged myself for the week in his R&D activities in choosing and exploring different components, techniques and libraries etc. I availed the opportunity and do bit exploration on Flash/Flex scene and found, Ensemble Tofino using which you can develop Flex applications from Visual Studio…great product indeed…
It allows you to create Visual Studio solution/projects for Flex app, let you debug (with breakpoints of course), you can navigate ActionScript classes from Visual Studio’ Object Browser, and above all, Intellisense code completion and the best part is, its FREE!
