FCG : a Flex Code Generator
FCG is an AIR application, currently under development, which primary goal is to automatically provide the base code for your RemoteObject based Flex applications. Basically, it means that it reads some code from the server side, and creates a bunch of MXML and AS files to boost your productivity. Its goal is not to create a ready-to-use application, but to provide the tools you need to do so as quickly as possible


  1. Hey, You have done a fantastic job. I will definitely digg it and I’ll suggest to my buddies. I am sure they will certainly be taken advantage of this great site.

  2. JavaScript is the only language that Eclipse Monkey supports out of the box, but you can contribute additional ones by using the org.eclipse.eclipsemonkey.language extension point and following the standard practice for creating additional components for the Eclipse platform. This extension point describes the interfaces to implement for integrating an additional language with Monkey.
