Before a building can be built, the foundation must be laid. This lesson is that foundation for further Flex development. You will leave this lesson knowing that you can manipulate the Flex Builder workbench in ways that make the process of Flex development easier and faster. Along the way you will create the three main application files that define the major sections of the FlexGrocer application.
Part of the study of any new body of knowledge is learning a basic vocabulary, and in this lesson you will learn the basic vocabulary of both Flex development and Flex Builder. You will understand terms such as view, perspective, and editor in relationship to the Flex Builder workbench. You also will understand the terms and processes that transform the text entered in Flex Builder into a file of the type Flash Player can consume at the browser.
