What is Firefly?

Firefly refers to a set of components available on the new Flash MX Data Connection Kit. From the website:

The Data Connection Kit provides prebuilt connections to web services, XML data, databases, and application servers so you can easily access, save, and display data.

I saw a demo yesterday of how easy it is to create “data aware” components which hook together into rich, dynamic applications. Very impressive stuff. You can find out more here:
