MapQuest announces beta launch of new API for Adobe ActionScript.
The beta launch of a new API for Adobe ActionScript has been announced by MapQuest, a Internet, wireless and business solutions provider, enabling developers to use a toolset with the benefits of ActionScript 3.0.
MapQuest said the new API option within its Advantage API allows developers to build rich applications with Adobe Flex or Adobe Flash software, using a true, native API for ActionScript. It claimed this enables improved developer productivity without the problem of runtime abstraction layers, which can slow the performance of applications.
According to MapQuest, the new ActionScript API offers the possibility of lower development costs, faster time-to-market and improved interactivity, alongside the company's mapping, routing, geocoding and search features. It confirmed that future improvements will expand the possibilities further, enabling developers to customise location-based applications with substantial control for the end-user.
