When it comes to rich and interactive content for the desktop browser, the flash platform is still one of (if not the) best platform on the market. But the close bond between the Flash platform and ActionScript has made it less accessible for other developers (especially Java developers). Flash4j is here to fix this situation. It started as a Java API for Apache Flex, except now we are adding support for other Flash-based libraries to give you even more capabilities. In this release we rewrote the framework from the ground up, fixed a handful of bugs and added an entire set of new features.
