Hi Martin & Alain,

Good Answer.

Then I need to decide. Ok, I decided to go `for Flex`.

With this I have established a realization.
     ActionScript 3 is Fundamental in developing applications `with 
Flex` and/or in developing `for Flex`.
     Flex4j (Flex for Java) can be also be used in developing 
applications `with Flex`
     There are a lot of technologies `on-top-of-Flex`.

Another question:
1. What tools do I need to get started in developing `for Flex`
2. Should I be concerned of the technologies that are `on-top-of-Flex` 
if I focused on developing `for Flex`.

To avoid confusion with the `with Flex` or `for Flex`
`with Flex` will be using Flex as an application for the Flash Platform.
`for Flex` will be improving Flex as a Framework.
