Your workflow may require developing prototypes for client or stakeholder reviews or for vetting ideas with other designers and Flex developers before reaching the actual development phase of the project. A working prototype can help sell your ideas by showing functional design elements instead of static wireframes and written notations.

Flash Catalyst is an excellent tool for quickly generating a functional prototype without writing any code. Using the built-in wireframe components, the Flash Catalyst drawing tools, and early design comps, you can very quickly build a working model of your application.
