Answer very briefly

Java with Flex, is the easiest server side combination, since have a lot of (the most) common elements?

Impending DB remote access in Apps with Flex is relatively easy? what db type is most common? eg MySQL

DB may be and locally access(no remote),...? is easiest than remote db access or the same implement? what db type is most common in this case? SQLite may embedded in Flex?

Flex Builder 4 as downloaded now, includes ALL NEWEST Edition of Flash Air/Player support?

My License is of Flex Builder 4 IDE Standard, this key may used for all editions/subeditions except non-Standard & 3 or 5(when gets out)?

What do you mean by "common elements"? Remember ColdFusion, which is another choice, is an Adobe product so there is alwasy likely to be good support for that technology.

Yes. No idea - what ever sort of relational database you like really.


DB may be and locally access(no remote),...? is easiest than remote db access or the same implement

Shouldn't make any difference (unless your netwrok is rubbish).

Yes.

You'd best speak to Adobe, but I'd asume all editions of FB4. That's how it worked with FB3 anyway.

I mean the code syntax is more likely near Java than anything else? second comes cfml? After this?

SQLite may embedded in Flex? like almost any database?

ActionScript has a fairly similar syntax to Java.

Not sure what the question is here - are you looking for a database to embed in the client? And if so (unless perhaps the client is AIR), why?

Flex on Java has become more popular since the rise of the object mapping frameworks like BlazeDS and others.

Whatever the server-side is using. In a Java server-side scenario you may be using BlazeDS to allow a Flex RemoteObject to communicate with a Java server-side object that knows how to do database persistence.

The AIR runtime has a local embedded database but not the Flash runtime.

I believe FlexBuilder should still come with a newer version of Flash and Air runtimes but you can always get the latest from the Adobe site for free. I'm not sure about your licensing question. Your license agreement would inform you better than me.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
