Flash / JS Integration Kit Released Under an Open License

Mike blogged the news yesterday, but just in case you avoid his blog in favor of mine, I’ll blog the news, too. As you might have noticed from Kevin Lynch’s Flash Platform white paper, we recently released the Flash / JavaScript Integration Kit (beta). The kit allows you to call JavaScript functions from Flash, and to call ActionScript functions from JavaScript. Not only can you invoke functions seamlessly across environments, but you can also pass most data types back and forth, as well, such as:

  • Objects
  • Arrays
  • Strings
  • Numbers
  • Booleans
  • Dates
  • nulls
  • undefined

The Flash / JavaScript Integration Kit works across all major platforms and browsers, and is available over at osflash.org for free under an open license based on the Apache 1.1 software license. Here are all the important links:

Submit any bugs or feature requests at the development site. Check out the integration kit in action over at MXNA. And finally, if you build something cool with the kit, let me know.
