Subject Re: [FlexJS] FW: Cross-compiling to build components

Hi Alex,

sorry for the late response.
I didn't mean to use the same code base for the SWF and the HTML
components, but only the same programming language: ActionScript!
Of course you would still have to learn different low-level APIs
(DisplayList versus browser DOM/BOM), but at least you could use the same
language and the higher level constructs from AS3 like packages, classes,
interfaces and the superior IDE support that exists for ActionScript.
