logo

Most of flex developer install the flex builder by selecting “Stand-alone IDE” configuration. While developing application using flex + java they have to depend on other editor or IDE. So here there is a way in which you can do the java development form the flex IDE.

There are two types of installation configuration when you install flex.

  1. Stand-alone IDE :“ This includes a customized version of Eclipse, and its own Java Runtime Environment (JRE). This version will not have java development tools preinstalled so you can’t do the java development. (For java development you need to install JDT (Java Development Tools) which we will see later in this article.)
  2. Plug-in :“ This will install flex builder 2 Plug-in on Eclipse (if you are currently using Eclipse 3.1.2 /3.2 on Macintosh OS X.). With this installation you can do development on java and flex simultaneously form one IDE.

For updating Java Development Features in Flex IDE You need to install Java Development Tools (JDT) plug-in.
You can download & install the JDT plug-in from following location
http://easyeclipse.org/site/plugins/eclipse-jdt.html

Or

You can install JDT from Flex Builder.

Following are steps to install JDT form Flex Builder.

1. Open Flex Builder IDE.

2. Navigate to: Help Menu >> Software Updates >> Click on Find and Install.
Flex Help Menu

3. Now Install/Update Dialogue box will open. Select “Search for new features to install” and Click on Next button.

7. Now Accept the License Agreement and Click on next.

8. Select the installation path (By default it will be your Flex builder 2 directory) and Click on Finish.
