Apollo for Adobe Flex Developers Pocket Guide


Apollo for Adobe Flex Developers Pocket Guide
Mike Chambers | O'Reilly Media | ISBN 0596513917 | Mar2007 | CHM | 138 pages | 366KB
Written by members of the Apollo product team, this is the official guide to the Alpha release of Adobe's Apollo project, the revolutionary cross platform desktop runtime from Adobe Labs.

Adobe Apollo Pocket Guide for Flex explains how to build and deploy Flash-based Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) to the desktop using Adobe's Flex framework. This book describes concisely how Apollo works, and offers numerous examples for those who want to start building RIAs for the desktop right away.
Why put RIAs on the desktop? They're already supposed to offer the responsiveness of desktop programs. Unfortunately, web browsers can't support all of the interactions we expect from applications. You can't drag a file into an RIA and have it act on that file, for example, or have RIAs interact with other applications on the computer.

Adobe Captivate 3.0


Adobe Captivate 3.0.0 Build 580 | 162MB
Adobe® Captivate® 3 software enables anyone to rapidly create powerful and engaging simulations, scenario-based training, and robust quizzes without programming knowledge or multimedia skills.
Adobe Captivate is a screencast program that outputs swf files using a Microsoft Windows computer. It can also convert Powerpoint files to Flash files.

This software lets the operator build and edit interactive program demos and lessons very quickly. It has an efficient screen-capture movie mode that snaps a sequence of still images and then builds mouse movement simulations to create the appearance of a running program. By using Adobe Flash Tweening technology, Captivate is able to create screencast in a much smaller filesize than needed for a real full-motion screen capture movie.
Users of Captivate can edit Captivate presentations to add captions, clickable hotspots, and change the time items appear and disappear. The hotspots can branch to other slides in the presentation, or to outside webpages.

Captivate supports the import of still images, PowerPoint, video, and audio tracks onto any Captivate slide. This allows presentation of large amounts of complex information using Captivates portable Flash .SWF output. Although creating Captivate presentations required Microsoft Windows, output can be played on computer platforms such as an Apple Macintosh, Linux Computer, or portable devices that supports Flash player 5.0 or higher.

Captivate supports the import of still images, PowerPoint, video, and audio tracks onto any Captivate slide. This allows presentation of large amounts of complex information using Captivates portable Flash .SWF output. Although creating Captivate presentations required Microsoft Windows, output can be played on computer platforms such as an Apple Macintosh, Linux Computer, or portable devices that supports Flash player 5.0 or higher.

Captivate is often targeted toward the corporate e-learning departments, industry trainers, and professional educators, but is helpful to anyone who wants to capture and edit screen recordings. For the educator, the product comes with several pre-built exam configurations allowing you to test a student's learning using multiple answer and fill in the blanks exam questions. Captivate supports the automatic sending of a user's exam results to the test giver's email. Additionally, the product supports many e-learning standards such as SCORM and AICC. The output can be published to a web site, saved to a CD, or sent via email. Captivate is 508-compliant which is especially effective when manually populated with detailed information.

The product was originally known as RoboDemo. In 2003 Macromedia acquired San Diego-based eHelp Corporation and the product became known as Captivate. The product overlaps in part with Macromedia Breeze. In 2005 Macromedia and its products, including Captivate, was acquired by Adobe.
