Subject RE: alternatives to flash builder
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2013 15:10:48 GMT
Most recent switch to Flash Builder 4.7 was nothing but disappointment.  I
don't know if it happens to anyone, FB 4.7 hangs on me many times, and it
uses substantially more CPU power, and I have to restart it at least once
every hour, when the hang up happens at the wrong time, my workspace would
be broken and I would have to rebuild the workspace.  It went so bad that
eventually I had to switch back to FB 4.6.  Furthermore, I submitted a
serial # request to update 4.7, the ticket was closed and Adobe made not
contact with me.  I started to worry if I could rely on Adobe for any future
Flex development

My projects generally are broken down to a few library projects and one Flex
project.  While FlashDevelop is my favorite choice of AS3 IDE, the lacking
of multiple-project support makes it inconvenient for me to use FD for
serious development

I have not tried FDT or IntelliJ IDEA, and I would love to hear anyone with
experience of both providing some insights on their pro's and con's.

You ca use open source FlashDevelop IDE with Apache Flex SDK.
