Thanks You are very helpful. i set the info (height - width - frame) in standard properties of Flash Professional CS5.
As far as programmatically, no, not setting a explicit scaleMode, or align, or anything, should I be? No metadata tag - wasn't aware I needed that using Flash Pro.
Thats good to know about Tweener, wasn't ware PB already had it, i'm using TweenMax, but will be very easy to switch to Tweener (Tweener was an old fav of mine in my Flash days)

UPDATE: If you are looking for the solution to the original question asked it is as follows:
It sounds like it's the switch to Flash Professional which is causing troubles, not your own code. Still, to make sure, can you (if you haven't already) build that same Hello World app in the new IDE and try again?
It also doesn't sound like you are probably anywhere near having the problem with oversize manifests. Still, to help you learn: the .bar file package that gets created is really just a .zip file with a different file extension. If you extract that (make a backup, then rename one of them to have a .zip extension, then unzip, or just use your usual unzip application) you'll see two folders inside, one with the MANIFEST.MF file in it, and the other called air/ and containing all your .swf files and other assets. The manifest file is just a text file that tells the system what it should expect to find in the .bar file, including "hashes" for each file so the integrity of the data can be checked as it's installed in the PB.
Followed Up By:
OK OK OK great news. After doing the HelloWorld, I decided to delete the airi, xml, bar and swf of old file, and regenerate them all to start fresh, and it works! [...]
As for anyone looking for the solution to distorted screen size, it is as follows:
this problem was brought up or something similar to it about a week ago. but may be helpful to you. in the following thread a user experienced the same problem and modified their xml file to fix the sizing issue:
hope that helps. good luck!

Hey guys! Happy Holidays! About finished with my PlayBook App, before I try to submit to Blackberry anyone wanna critique it / make suggestions? I exported it for the desktop so you guys can use it. Simple Dribbble api app, pulls content, displays it, hopefully will be first dirbbble app on playbook!
