Actually, Air relies on the Adobe Air Runtime which is a tad different than the Flash Player browser plugin in that it doesn't run in a browser. Though it is launched from a browser much like Java Web Start.
So if i have flash playar we can use as like swing applications?
No, not really.
So you can use Adobe Air to create rich desktop like applications. They are like Swing in that they run on the clients computer. Not like a web application which runs inside the browser. But both Swing and Air use gui widgets/controls to display forms and content in a frame much the same way.
However, while the presentation of the content can be similar between Air and Swing, the methods of developing an Air application are much different than that of Swing development.
