Hi All,
I need some help in getting started on Adobe Flex. I am using Eclipse 3.3.2 as my IDE. I am confused on how to get started. Should I use Adobe Flex SDK or Flex Builder. I have downloaded Flex SDK. Now how to get started on building a Flex project. Also Flex Builder comes with a 60 day trail. Do we have Adobe Flex Builder as free for development purpose. In the Adobe flex site I am not getting any useful information as such.
Please help me on getting started on Adobe Flex. Thanks in advance.

Hi Siddharth,
Start using the flexbuilder 2 or 3, 60 days evaluation is enough. FB also provide you help/API about flex. Once you get hands on Flex then you can plug the flex sdk in eclipse I m sure.

I don't have an idea you would like to follow the flex UI track or interested in Flex data service which provide Web-service, RPC and HTTPService call on back-end [java,CF,PHP,..] code.

Here is flex help:

I agree. Here's the link:
