Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR)

Definition - What does Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) mean?

Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) is a runtime environment by Adobe Systems that allows developers to build rich Internet applications (RIA) across a variety of devices and platforms, including PCs, smartphones and TVs.

Techopedia explains Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR)

AIR provides a broader functionality range to Web developers, especially those experienced with Adobe platforms (like Adobe Flash). AIR facilitates the building of Internet applications based on HTML, Java and ActionScript. AIR’s functionality range also includes browserless runtime characteristics, which makes AIR perfect for RIAs deployed by desktops.

AIR platform development benefits are easily identifiable. For example, an AIR application requires packaging, digital signing and installation on a PC’s local file system, which creates extra application security. Because AIR is a known software source, spyware and virus risks drop dramatically.
