20.12. Deploy an AIR Application as a Native Installer

Problem

You need to interact directly with the native processes of the operating system.

Solution

In AIR 2, use the new NativeProcess class and an application distributed via a native installer.

Discussion

Adobe AIR 2 introduces the concept of native installers and the possibility of interacting directly with the native processes of the operating system. This new addition means that now it is possible to package and distribute an AIR application via a native installer (e.g., a DMG file on Mac OS X, EXE file on Windows, or RPM or DEB file on Linux). Applications that are distributed via a native installer allow you to interact with the operating system’s native processes, using the new NativeProcess class. This new class allows you to create much more complex and refined applications compared to the possibilities of AIR 1.5.
