Adobe Flex Builder Workspace Structure

In a nutshell, Adobe Flex Builder Workspace is a file directory that contains all your project related files, such as MXML, ActionScript, Images, Libraries, and XML. But how does a typical structure of Flex Workspace look like?

Assuming you create a Flex project called HelloWorld, and use C:\flexworkspace as your workspace, you will see the following directories under C:\flexworkspace:

  • .metadata
  • HelloWorld

.metadata contains the flex workspace configuration files, which you usually do not need to touch.  All your project files are under HelloWorld (the project name) folder.

Under HelloWorld folder, you will see some things as follows:

  • .settings
    Project configuration files

  • bin-debug
    Compiled swf and related application files

  • html-template
    Html wrapper page

  • libs
    Your custom classes

  • src
    Source files, components, and assets

  • .actionScriptProperties,  .flexProperties,  .project
    Additional Flex Builder configuration files

In most cases, what you need to work on are the src and libs folders.
