Playbook Development Tools

Good day.


I'm attempting to develop an application for Blackberry tablet but unfortunately I don't have Adobe Flash Builder or Adobe Flex. However I do have Adobe Flash Professional CS4. Is there a possibility that I could package a simulate an application using just this tool?

You can create applications in Adobe Flash Professional CS using the expansion of AIR 2.5 and compile the final application from the command line using of SDK.

Simulation directly from the Adobe Flash CS will not work with all the features of the SDK, so
Simulation is better to run from a command prompt using BlackBerryPlayBookSimulator.

• using Flash Builder and Flash Professional to create applications targeting the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet
