Ajax at Adobe with Dreamweaver CS4, Adobe AIR and More

The new Adobe® AIR™ runtime enables Ajax developers to build rich Internet applications (RIAs) that deploy on the desktop. AIR applications run across operating systems on the WebKit HTML engine and are easily delivered using a single installer file. With Adobe AIR, Ajax developers can use their existing skills and code to build responsive, highly engaging applications that combine the power of local resources and data with the reach of the web Developer benefits.

Benefits of Adobe AIR for developers using Ajax include:

  • Use existing code, plus Adobe Dreamweaver® software, Aptana Studio, or another IDE, and common Ajax frameworks to deliver applications to the desktop that complement and expand your browser applications.
  • Take advantage of the desktop capabilities of Adobe AIR to build applications that are more responsive, engaging, and valuable for users.
  • Deliver the same code on the desktop as in the browser thanks to the open source, cross-operating system WebKit engine.
  • Feel more confident about the reliability and stability of your Adobe AIR applications knowing that they use proven, open technologies such as WebKit, SQLite, and ECMAScript.
