Microsoft Visual Studio users get Flash development capabilities

SapphireSteel positions its technology as enabling an alternative to Microsoft's Silverlight RIA platform

Offering Windows developers an alternative to Microsoft's rival Silverlight rich Internet technology, SapphireSteel Software on Monday is releasing an IDE providing Adobe Flash capabilities for Microsoft's Visual Studio software development platform.

To be formally launched Monday, Amethyst is an IDE with Flex, Flash, and ActionScript development capabilities for Visual Studio 2008 and 2010. Microsoft-based developers can design, code, and debug Flash applications and Flex applications without being forced to use an unfamiliar IDE, SapphireSteel said. Adobe AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) capabilities are offered as well.
