Part I: Creating a Simple RIA with Flex 3
Note: The current release is Flex 4. This page is for Flex 3. To get started with Flex 4 and Flash Builder 4 (formerly known as Flex Builder), see the Getting Started page on the Flex Developer Center.
In this module, you will learn how to create a simple rich Internet application (RIA) that retrieves and displays photos from the Flickr API based on user-supplied keywords. To build this application you will use Flex Builder, pre-built Flex components, and the Flex HTTP service.
The following application is an embedded SWF file created by using Flex Builder; it is not a screen shot. Type a search term, like "Adobe," into the text box and click the Submit button to retrieve and display photo data from the Flickr API.
NOTE: the images displayed are coming from a public photo feed. The results may be unpredictable and Adobe is not responsible for the contents of the feed itself.
