This article describes the basic principles of the Spark architecture, and how Spark makes it easier for developers and designers to work together.

What do you think of Flex's new component architecture?

This kind of separation between "looks" and "structure" (children etc.) is exactly what I have been waiting for in a UI framework for years!

I was impressed with Flex 3, but Flex 4 proves that Adobe more than any other company understand the visual element of software.

And no, I am not an Adobe employee, or paid to say this. I am merely a Java developer who is disappointed with Swing and SWT.
