J:ACK samples

J:ACK was an event-based component framework for MacroMedia Flash 5, published as open-source project. My contributions were the framework foundation, some of the higher level components, the associated documentation and the website (2). The library provided a collection of components. Most of these were visual user-interface widgets. Proof-of-concept applications demonstrated the capabilities of the framework and its skinning features (3, 4).
