I made AIR Native Extension that can run java applications on Windows AIR.

The following image is a capture.

You can download the sample application on

How to use
  1. Please set jvm.dll path on your pc. Maybe 64bit Java doesn’t work well. So please set 32bit jvm.dll
  2. Skip class name so far. I will explain
  3. Push start button. When you can see “java vm start” message, It means java vm start well.
  4. Push call button, then you can see current time strings on the screen.
    The time was provided by java application.

    If you access http://localhost:9991/ , then you can see current time strings on your browser.
  5. Push stop button, then java vm will be destroyed.
Inside a little

Please see the folder you installed the application.
Then you can see the following files or directory.

|- log4j.xml
|- *.jar

ANEj ( I named ) will call the following static method in the class you specified.
static boolean init();
static boolean start();
static boolean stop();

So If you want to try another java program,
Please change or add classes / *.jar.
( If you put some.jar on libs folder, the sample application add some.jar on the java classpath )

I will start ANEj project on Google Code, and add c code and as code in the near term.

I updated Gravity Mail.
This version features is “Tag” based management messages.

I want to make e-mail client application like my blog site using e-mail for my private purposes.
This page is Gravity Mail information page in Japanese.
But some images help you to understand it. I hope….

I am making e-mail client application using Adobe AIR.
Please see the details.

But this application is in development.

I released airxmail version 0.7.

New feature


If you use draft implementation, please change this version.

I made a class for syslog output for Adobe AIR.
Because I want to see logs using linux “tail” & “grep” command.

How to use UDPSyslogTarget
import com.coltware.airxlib.log.UDPSyslogTarget;

var syslog:UDPSyslogTarget = new UDPSyslogTarget("");
syslog.facility = UDPSyslogTarget.LOG_LOCAL1;
syslog.program = "AdobeAIR";
syslog.filters = ["com.coltware.*"];
syslog.level = LogEventLevel.DEBUG;
syslog.includeCategory = true;

Line 3. Set hostname and port(default is 514)
Line 4. Set facility
Line 5. Set program name

Other properties are same as TraceTarget class.

If you don’t know how to use TraceTarget, please see HERE.

Can’t get email from POP3 or IMAP4 server with Airxmail.
Can’t send email to SMTP server with Airxmail.
But Why ?

But It is difficult to make the answer.
Because Airxmail is a library to communicate servers.
So you should know which is the problem, server or client ?

But How ??

Airxmail library support flex logging(mx.logging) functions.
So you can get debug logs using this functions.
The log text show you the communication between server and client.

1.Log sample ( IMAP and POP3 )
2.How to use flex logging functions.
  2-1 ) Output using standard( trace() ) classes.
  2-2 ) Output to file instead of trace()

2.How to use flex logging functions

Flex logging function is not depends output facility.
So you can decide the log output facility.
1st step: explain how to use flex logging using the class in FLEX SDK ( not depends on any library to output log )
2nd step: explain how to write log file using my classes
Because standard classes in FLEX SDK in only support standard output(?) ( trace() output ) as far as I know.

2-1 )

import mx.logging.Log;
import mx.logging.LogEventLevel;
import mx.logging.LogLogger;
import mx.logging.targets.TraceTarget;

private function init():void{
	var logTarget:TraceTarget = new TraceTarget();
	logTarget.filters = ["*"];
	logTarget.includeCategory = true;
	logTarget.level = LogEventLevel.DEBUG;

Please invoke init method in your initialize step.
In my usual case, I write these code.

<mx:WindowedApplication xmlns:mx="" width="100%" height="100%" xmlns:local="*"

That’s all.
You don’t need to write stace() function in your code.

You can see these code in airxmail library.

private static const log:ILogger = Log.getLogger("com.coltware.airxmail.imap.IMAP4Client");
private static const _log:ILogger = Log.getLogger("com.coltware.airxmail_internal.IMAP4");
_log.debug("CMD[" + cmd + "]");

Airxmail output a log automatically using flex logging functions.
You can see more detail at
Flex logging function is many functions , like filter output and change output format etc …

Current Airxmail subversion repository version has these 2 category.

“com.coltware.airxmail_internal.*” is low level log like protocol debug.
“com.coltware.airxmail.*” is more user level log.
But there was not clearly border, so please check the source code if you want to know more detail.

2-2 )
use FileTarget class in airxlib library.
FileTarget class support to write log file on your desktop pc.

import com.coltware.airxlib.log.FileTarget;

private function init():void{

  var fileTarget:FileTarget = new FileTarget(); = File.desktopDirectory;  //  set directory path
  fileTarget.filename = "airxmail.log";              //  set filename
  fileTarget.append = false;                             
  fileTarget.filters = ["*"];
  fileTarget.includeCategory = true;
  fileTarget.level = LogEventLevel.DEBUG;

I made air app that it convert o’reilly ebook app file to epub file.

STEP1 ) Buy o’reilly ebooks from Android market.

If ebook app support to export epub format, please use it. But some app doesn’t support ….

ex) Flex4 Cookbook, and etc ….

Then Go on the Next Step….

STEP2 ) copy to sdcard from apk file using appMonster or other app…..

STEP3 ) mount android to PC using USB cable.

STEP4 ) Install “export epub” app and execute it.

STEP5 ) Drag and drop to the following image. Then wait a minute.
Screen shows “DONE” label. Then you can find epub file in the same directory.

I don’t know the app can extract epub file from iPhone app because I don’t have mac and iphone.
This air application use airxzip library.
airxzip library is as3 zip library for Adobe AIR.

I made airxmail swc file on google codes.
The file is draft implemetation version for IMAP4.
So if you don’t want to use draft version, please wait…

It doen’t support IMAP4 all functions.
But it is available to get e-mail message from imap server, like gmail imap.

These code are sample to connect and get message from gmail account.

Create client instance
import com.coltware.airxmail.imap.IMAP4Client;

private var client:IMAP4Client;

public function init():void{

	client = new IMAP4Client; = "";
	client.port = 993;
	client.socketObject = new SecureSocket();
mail flow to connect and get e-mail
//  Set handler for Folder Result

//  Set handler for UID list result ( uid is a key to get e-mail from server )

//  Set message handler 

//  Set username and password, and invoked connect method

//  get subscribed folder list

// logout 
Implemantation of folder result handler
private function folderListResult(event:IMAP4Event):void{
  var folder:IMAP4Folder = event.result as IMAP4Folder;
  trace("NAME=>[" + + " --> " + folder.nameUTF8 + "]");



If the folder’s noselect property is true, you can NOT select mailbox,



If you want to get ALL messages from the folder,


If you know the folder name ( ex “INBOX” ) and want to get ALL messages form the folder,
you don’t need to get folder list, so you can change main flow source as following below..


// client.lsubBlocking();
Implemantation of message get handler

// result for search method
private function uidList(event:IMAP4ListEvent):void{
for(var i:int = 0; i

If you want to know how to get e-mail message.
Please refer to HERE.

private	function messageHandler(e:POP3MessageEvent):void{
	var msg:MimeMessage = e.getMimeMessage();
	//  attachmentChildren are only parts has attachments files.
	//  Don't need to check all children to extract files
	var attaches:Array = msg.attachmentChildren;
	if(attaches.length > 0){
		for each(var attach:MimeBodyPart in attaches){
			if(attach is MimeBinaryPart){
				var binPart:MimeBinaryPart = attach as MimeImagePart;
				var bytes:ByteArray = attach.bodyByteArray;
				//  v0.5 and less than r69 version has BUG !!
				//  binPart.getHeader("Content-Disposition"); is both available
				var contentDisposition:MimeHeader = binPart.contentDisposition;
					var filename:String = contentDisposition.getParameter("filename");
					filename = MimeUtils.decodeMimeHeader(filename);
					log.debug("Filename => " + filename );
					//  save Desktop directory, plese change following codes as you like
					var file:File =	File.desktopDirectory.resolvePath(filename);
					var fs:FileStream = new	FileStream();,FileMode.APPEND);
