Roundtripping between Flash Builder 4.5 and Flash Catalyst CS5.5

We’ve all seen how the roundtripping between Flash Builder 4 and Flash Catalyst CS5 just sucked. You just couldn’t do it in a workable manner. When the MAX preview releases came along, well, things got a little bit better. But still, it was not a practical way of doing things.

Now we have Flash Builder 4.5 and Flash Catalyst CS5.5 and things are really shaping up. We can finally do roundtripping, even multiple times. Just look at this video in which I demonstrate exactly that and some other cool new productivity features in Flash Builder 4.5

  1. William R. Cousert says:

    Will round tripping work with Android projects?

  2. Unfortunately, at the moment, only Flash Catalyst compatible projects can be used for roundtripping. I’m sure Adobe’s working on that as well for a future update.

    However, that doesn’t mean you can’t do roundtripping at all. You can still use library projects that contain your components en you can do roundtripping with those. You just have to maintain your mobile application from within Flash Builder.

  3. Any ideas how to do Localization with a Catalyst compatible project? When adding the /locale/{locale} directory to a project you get a warning telling you that it is a Flash Catalyst Project Incompatibility.

  4. The way I use localization is to load an external SWF at runtime. That SWF contains the localization resource bundles. That way you don’t have to change the compiler settings.

    Take a look at this for more details:
