  The ActionScript Open Source Libraries
  By Greg Stein - 1/24/2007 01:47:00 PM

Our friends at Adobe recently started hosting their open source
projects on Google Code. We wanted to hear a bit more about their
experience moving ActionScript 3 libraries over to Google Code, and
here is what they had to say:

    The ActionScript Open Source libraries are a set of ActionScript 3
    libraries created by Adobe that make it easy to work with online
    APIs in Flash and Flex applications. There are libraries included
    for Flickr, YouTube , Mappr, as well as a general utility Library
    (corelib), a unit testing framework (Flex Unit), as well as a
    complete library for reading RSS and ATOM feeds.

    We recently moved these libraries from our own Adobe Labs site to
    Google Code, and have been very happy with the results thus
    far. The projects were always intended to be community run
    projects, but our initial deployment site did not have the
    infrastructure in place to handle hosting an open source project
    with multiple developers. As the libraries became more and more
    popular, and as we continued to get requests from developers to
    improve and contribute code, we decided that we needed to move to
    a system that would better allow the developer community to
    contribute to the projects.

    We looked at a number of code repositories, but decided on Google
    Code because it had all of the features that we wanted
    (Subversion, Issue Tracking, Downloads, Wiki and Groups), and
    integrated them in a way we felt was intuitive and
    straightforward. We did run into some initial problems moving the
    code from our Subversion repository to Google Code, but with some
    help from Google, were able to make the transition.

    We have already seen more participation from the developer
    community, and have added new features and fixed some bugs. We
    expect that the projects will continue to grow as more developers
    start working with ActionScript, Flash and Flex.
