Android Trader Application with Flex 4 and AIR

I recently blogged about building a Real Time Trader Desktop Application using Flex 4 and LiveCycle Data Services. I posted the source code for the AIR version and the Browser version of the application. The next logical step was to build a Mobile version. I used Flex 4 and the prerelease version of AIR for Android.

Watch the video:

I made some changes to the User Interface to work better on a smaller screen, but for the most part, this version of the application uses the same code as the browser and the desktop versions: same data feed, subscription logic, model, controller, components, etc. This made it amazingly easy to take an existing Flex application and deploy it on Android… Three different deployment targets (Browser, Desktop, Mobile), same programming model, same language, same tools, same code.

The developer prerelease of AIR for Android is now available. More information here.

    Christophe, I work with Flexicious, a DataGrid control for Adobe Flex, with support for Filter, Pagination, Footers, Print, Print Preview, Excel/Word/Html Export, PDF Export, etc built in.

    I wanted to get in touch with you to explore the possibility of including the product in some of your demos, so we can show case our product, and your readers and the Flex community in general is aware of the availability of a product like ours that can shave many many man hours off the development timelines of Enterprise LOB applications.

    […] The Adobe AIR runtime and SDK are both downloadable for free. AND… one of the most exciting and compelling reasons you should make it a point to start building apps with AIR is that you will soon be able to go mobile! Check out the AIR for Android program to see how you can write AIR apps that run natively on your Android device! I’ve built a couple of apps myself for my Nexus One and I’m personally very excited about how easy it is. You can have the same application running from your desktop that could be communicating with a LiveCycle Data Services server or BlazeDS ported over to your mobile device in minutes. An example of one such application can be found here. […]
