Hi Friends,

I am new to Android. This is my first post over here.

How can we use Flash/Flex for UI and Java for business Logic. Is there any feature provided by android for this intercommunication or do we need to use any third party for this?

Please suggest.

Thanks,

Flash is predominantly used in web apps. If you're writing a native Android app -which I assume you're doing- then you'd use the Android UI toolkit, not Flash. There may be some weird way to use Air for the GUI, and Java code for the rest of the app, but that would be a weird hack. What benefits do you see in using Flash instead of Android's native GUI classes?

We are assuming that flash will provide more interactivity with rich UI, we are creating an application to view videos in one part of the tablet, and ads and related videos in other parts. The data will be pulled from the local database itself.

Can we implement such a feature with android UI toolkit?

Yes, that's no problem. I don't see how Flash could provide more "interactivity", but then, I'm not sure what you mean by that.
