When I heard that AIR allowed me to leverage jQuery I was
excited! I would like to leverage these great features to extend
CS3 applications. For instance, writing Dreamweaver extensions
jQuery to do major parsing for say, writing complex DW translators.
natively (this is just one example).
Is there a way to leverage Adobe AIR to extend CS3
applications like Dreamweaver? I thought about possibly performing
interprocess communication via Flash embedded in a DW floater, but
its looking like I'm stuck getting Flash to talk back to DW's
any ideas? Is WebKit actually communicating over a socket? My other
resolve would be to write a mini HTTP service in Java (maybe AIR?)
that could leverage DW's HTTP I/O API to communicate back and
Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Otherwise, all I can say is
that AIR's xcross platform appeal (looking nice) should be extended
to extend Adobe xcross platform products! This would be ideal as it
would result in value added resale of more Adobe suites. -I can
think of another company that loves it when developers extended
their (Office) suite of application with their own development
Doesn't look like this is possible at this time. Which is a
shame. A better choice would be to use Java for a cross platform
solution and communicate via sockets.
Perhaps Adobe will see the value in VAR (value added resale)
of their products. Right now, it appears that Microsoft's Office
Suite/Expression/Silverlight suite is the best bet for developing
VAR software solutions for my clients.
