I was wondering if it is possible to have a standalone copy of eclipse and add Flex as a plugin?
That would be here then http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Flex:Install_Instructions#Flex_Builder_2_Plug-in
If I run into any problems along the way I will let y'all know.
I did have one problem with the installAnywhere FlexBuilder2_B3_05-08.exe for flex. I kept getting an error message after it sets up the install process saying..."please select another location to extract the installer to" apparently this is something to do with a corrupt file so downloaded it again and it worked....I also removed my old version of flex builder prior to installation
There are no server licensing costs with 2.0. The SDK and runtime are free (including the compiler). You can build and distribute whatever you want with them. Flex Builder, the IDE, is not free and will cost less than $1000. Flex Data Services, an optional back-end server, is probably gonna cost a helluva lot, but it's not needed in most cases (and there's a limited free edition).
I have installed flex as a plugin to eclipse and things are working in pretty much the same way so all is good....except trial is still there :(
