Terminology Conventions

The word Flash has different meaning in different contexts, such as a browser plugin or the authoring environment. This book follows these naming conventions:

Flash

Refers generically to Flash movies and the Flash technology.

Flash MX

Refers to the Flash MX authoring environment.

Flash MX 2004 (Flash 2004)

Refers to the Flash 2004 authoring environment. Flash 2004, released in September 2003, is the sequel to Flash MX. Flash Remoting in Flash 2004 is the same as Flash Remoting in Flash MX.

Flash MX Professional 2004 (Flash Pro)

Refers to the Flash Pro authoring environment. Flash Pro offers all the features of Flash 2004, plus a forms-based UI and some additional components. Flash Remoting in Flash Pro is the same as Flash Remoting in Flash 2004 and Flash MX, although there is additional support for access to SOAP-based web services.
