BluePrint Flash Builder code example plugin available on Adobe Labs

[via The Blueprint Eclipse plug-in is live on Adobe Labs (for Flex Builder 3 and Flash Builder 4) on the Flex Doc Team blog]

So, “What is Blueprint”, you may be asking yourself:

Blueprint is a plugin for Adobe Flex Builder 3 and Adobe Flash Builder 4 that allows users to query for Adobe Flex and Adobe Flash code examples found on the Web directly inside of the development environment. The purpose of this preview is to assess the level of community interest in this type of customized search interface for code examples.

Very cool indeed! For more information, check out the Flex Doc Team blog’s entry over at http://blogs.adobe.com/flexdoc/2009/06/the_blueprint_eclipse_plugin_i.html, or download Blueprint directly from Adobe Labs at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/blueprint/.
