Is it practically to develop Flex applications without using Flex Builder? It seems that there are no feature rich free/open source Flex IDEs.

Yes, it is entirely possible to develop Flex applications without Flex Builder using some of the open source IDEs which provides few good features if not all such as debugging, code hinting, syntax coloring, compilation and so on. have a look at the list http://www.riaspace.net/2009/01/flex-developer-tools-ides/

Thanks for the list. I tried Flex Developer, but to me it isn't powerful enough to make developing Flex applications productive.
