I was looking through the posts for Flex and I admit I am new and to Flex and never though about giving it a try. Before I dive in, I want to understand what IDE support is available. I read about Adobe Builder but I think it has a commercial license. Any Eclipse plugins or support?

Also, currently I am just working with Spring and Tomcat. If I plan to use Flex how does the technology stack change? Do we develop web applications in a similar fashion?

Bear with me I am absolutely new to Flex.

FlexBuilder is an eclipse plugin, though a commercial one. There are no open source alternatives. you can however wourk without FlexBuilder just using eclipse. Its not perfect but you can get by.

There are open source and commercial third party IDEs but none of them have all the features that is provided by Flex Builder, have a look at the list http://www.riaspace.net/2009/01/flex-developer-tools-ides/
