    The running machanism of FlashBuilder released apks ?

      There is just only a <classes.dex> and the swf file in the apk (by FlashBuilder),

      it looks like the AS3 code still compile to a SWF, not DEX,

      and the swf will install to the classes.dex to run,

      right?

          I don't know what the dex includes specifically, but at some point your byte code (SWF) will need to be interpreted by native ARM code (aka the AIR runtime), in order to execute your application. I imagine the dex includes a bit of native ARM code to register your application with the runtime (or possibly includes the runtime itself with a captive install).
