I received an email from the editor informing me that the book is now printed and will be available in bookstores next week (from July 5th, 2010).
An online version is also available.
Here is the cover of the book :
Adobe published some stats about Flash Player, in case you did not already them :
98% of Internet connected PCs have Flash Player
75% of web video is viewed using Flash Player
98% of enterprises rely on Flash Player
I found this screencast quite cool. In less than 14 mn, James Ward, a well-known technical evangelist for Flex and Adobe, shows us 3 or 4 simple ways to fetch data from a backend written in Java and how to render this data in a Flex application using the DataGrid component.
