This past week I was able to write a small application with the Flex 4 API and FlashBuilder. I have quite a bit of previous experience with Flex 3 and wanted to write a quick note on my first impressions of the new environment.
I like seeing Oracle leverage non-Oracle technology, like Adobe Flex and AIR. I hope that trend continues for Oracle…while Microsoft goes off to build things like Silverlight and Apple simply decides to avoid support for Flash altogether on their iPhone and iPad devices. I haven’t played with these widgets myself yet, but I do like the idea and sure we will be leveraging them.

Even Flex Builder with all its awesomeness is not without its own set of quirks. It seems the introspecting utility does not handle collections(arrays, arraylist, string) properly.
