Adobe shows off Apollo alpha

Posted on Tuesday, Mar 20 2007 @ 04:55 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Adobe presents an alpha version of its new Apollo cross-platform technology for web developers. This new program will enable developers to build Flash, Flex, HTML, JavaScript and Ajax based applications for the desktop.
Apollo enables developers to create applications that combine the benefits of web applications – network and user connectivity, rich media content, ease of development, and broad reach – with the strengths of desktop applications – application interactions, local resource access, personal settings, powerful functionality, and rich interactive experiences.

Apollo enables familiar application interaction models, including drag-and-drop support, rich clipboard access, and desktop and system shortcuts. Furthermore, Apollo applications run as regular applications, and do not have to run within another application or shell (as web applications do by running within the browser).
