Macromedia Flex is the first version of the Flex platform, originally released by Macromedia on March 29, 2004.[1] After the acquisition of Macromedia by Adobe Systems in December 2005,[2] it became known as Adobe Flex and is now known as Apache Flex.

Product history[edit | edit source]

Macromedia targeted the enterprise application development market with its initial releases of Macromedia Flex 1.0 and 1.5. The company offered the technology at a price of around US$12000 per CPU. Required for deployment, the J2EE application server compiled MXML and ActionScript on-the-fly into Flash applications (binary SWF files). Each server license included 5 licenses for the Flex Builder integrated development environment (IDE).
