Using Flash Builder’s Mobile Workflow with Flash Professional Projects
Flash Professional and Flash Builder both have mobile workflows. If you want to use the mobile workflow of Flash Builder with a Flash Professional project take a look at the video at the end of the post.
The basic idea is to use Flash Professional and/or Flash Professional Project type in Flash Builder as the compilers. They compile the swf’s, but do not handle the packaging of the mobile application.
Then you create a Flash Builder ActionScript Mobile Project that does the compiling and publishing out to mobile devices, with the compiling turned off. The compiler projects still put the debug symbols to allow debugging with the mobile project to work with full Flash Builder breakpoints and trace statement capabilities.
When you want to make a change, just make it in the Flash Professional Project in Flash Builder and it will compile the new swf to the ActionScript Mobile Project’s bin-debug. Then you can launch it through the mobile project to test/debug.
