Clear Toolkit for Flex Goes Private Beta

Clear Toolkit is a collection of productivity tools for enterprise Flex and Java developers

Clear Toolkit 3.0 is a set of components, code generators, and plugins created by software engineers of Farata Systems. It's been used internally in multiple Flex enterprise projects by Farata's consultants.  In September of 2008, its version 3.0 goes private beta.  This toolkit will be available free of charge.

Clear Toolkit is not an architectural framework. It consists of a set of components that extend Flex frameworks and tools built on top of these components that substantially increase productivity of the enterprise Flex developers. Each of these components can be used independently when needed. Here’s what’s included in Clear Toolkit:

Components library is an swc file that includes a number of enhanced Flex components like Datagrid, ComboBox et al.
