Chapter 3Your First Apollo Mission
Building Your First Apollo Application
You can build your first Apollo desktop application leveraging Flex Builder 2.0.1, the Apollo Flex Builder Extensions, and, of course, the Apollo runtime. Apollo development involves a workflow that is common to all Apollo applications and includes creating an application descriptor XML file (
