Tutorial: Flex for Android in 90 Minutes

· Java Zone

Learn more about Kotlin, a new programming language designed to solve problems that software developers face every day brought to you in partnership with JetBrains.

If you are looking for a quick way to get started building Flex applications for Android (even if you don’t have an Android device), check out this tutorial: FlexAndroid90Minutes.pdf.

You can download the supporting materials here: FlexAndroid90Minutes.zip.

This tutorial will be posted as a DevNet article in a couple of weeks, but I already wanted to make it available here because a number of people have asked for it. It is based on the hands-on session I delivered at MAX, with additional information and instructions.

Here is a quick outline:

  • Part 1: Creating a Basic Mobile Application
  • Part 2: Using Mobile Item Renderers
  • Part 3: Navigating and Passing Information between Views
  • Part 4: Creating an Action Bar
  • Part 5: Integrating with the Device Capabilities (Dialer, SMS, Email)
  • Part 6: Using a RemoteObject
  • Part 7: Using a Local SQLite Database

In this tutorial, you build a fully functioning Employee Directory application. The end result is the application available on the Android Market. (Just search “Employee Directory” in the Android Market).

 

As always I appreciate your feedback to continue to improve the tutorial.

Thank You,

Christophe
