At Adobe MAX 2008, Adobe announced the new Flash Platform concept, and this has replaced the branding formerly known as Adobe Engagement Platform.

In 2005, Adobe Systems bought Macromedia. The Adobe Engagement Platform was the announced name of the product line resulting from the merger of Macromedia Flash with Adobe Acrobat.

There are five pieces to the platform's architecture. The universal client (principally Adobe Reader and Flash Player), server-side components, application architecture frameworks (such as Cairngorm), development tools (such as Dreamweaver and Adobe Flex), and the Adobe Solutions Network partner comm.

In 2008, the new Flash Platform similarly includes:

  • Flash Player
  • Flash Authoring Tools such as Flash Professional, Flex, and Flash Catalyst
  • Flash Server products such as Flash Media Server, BlazeDS, and LiveCycle DS
