Flex Application Starter Toolkit Article in DevNet

John Bennett, a Macromedia Consulting Architect, recently published an article covering MC’s Flex Application Starter ToolKit (FAST). Here is an excerpt from the article…

“FAST addresses two fundamental aspects of Flex application development: event logging and data communications. To support event logging, FAST provides an API modeled after Java’s log4j and a Flex-based event display console. For data communications, FAST exposes a simplified programming interface that provides robust error handling, client-side data caching, diagnostic and performance information, and an underlying architecture that supports large applications and facilitates team development.”
