  • Offers solutions on how to approach and utilize OOP

AdvancED ActionScript 3.0: Design Patterns is for Flash and/or Flex developers seeking a better understanding of object-oriented programming and the knowledge to utilize it in a manner practical to the language itself.

Templates for applications are also provided to help you bring colleagues up to the same secure application standards. If you are less familiar with either Java or Oracle PL/SQL, you will not be left behind; all the concepts in this book are introduced as to a novice and addressed as to an expert.
