Until recently, building plug-ins for programs like Photoshop may have taken months with the C++ plug-in API. Now with the release of Creative Suite SDK, Flex and Flash developers can create Flash based extensions for most of the Adobe CS5 family of products. Using CS ActionScript wrapper libraries (CSAW) in the CS SDK along with the CS Extension Builder plug-in for Flash Builder, developers that have traditionally worked on Rich Internet Applications for the Web can now harness their existing skills to rapidly build new functionality for Adobe desktop applications.
This session will demonstrate a practical use case of how CS SDK can bridge the Designer and Developer worlds by building a Photoshop extension that integrates Enterprise class LiveCycle Data Services (LCDS) with a ColdFusion server back end to enable real time collaboration between photo editors and web application users working as a team.
