ActionScript 3 API Service on Google App Engine

I have just uploaded a new ActionScript 3 reference / online documentation API to Google App Engine. Basically, the service takes an ActionScript 3 class name (or a fragment of a class name) and returns the URL for the online documentation for the specified class.

For example:



    "items": [
        { "path": "String.html", "name": "String" },
        { "path": "mx/utils/StringUtil.html", "name": "StringUtil" },
            "path": "mx/validators/StringValidator.html",
            "name": "StringValidator"
    "version": "flex3",
    "base_path": "http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/langref/"

All responses are returned as JSON encoded data.

Right now, it returns API information for Flash Player 9, Flex 3 and AIR 1.1. It is possible to add new API information.

You can read more information on the service page at:

Post any comments, questions, suggestions or bugs in the comments.
