If you have done Java development using Eclipse IDE, you are going to love IDE Factory. IDE Factory brings a lot of features to Flex development. Following is the list of features (brought by IDE Factory in FB3), I think would be super useful:-
- Package Explorer, I love the SWC and Flex/Flash framework stuff
- E4X Expression Builder
- Format Flex Source Files – Yup, it can format all source files in the project
- Extended Wizards for creating ActionScript class/interface and MXML components
- Cairngorm support
Apart from these, there are some other stuff like asdoc generation, flex-unit tests generation, UML generation, etc.
I am sure, it’s going to evolve to be super useful and would become must-have tool for Flex application development.
It would be great, if they can add support for other Flex frameworks (PureMVC, etc).
