Flash Components (deprecated)
Yahoo! offers the ASTRA Flash components to complement the existing set provided in Adobe Flash CS3. These components are easily skinnable and fully documented, and wide selection of examples are available to help developers get started quickly.Download
Flex Components (deprecated)
Yahoo! offers the ASTRA Flex components for use in your Adobe Flex 3 applications. These Flex components are designed to work like any other components for Flex with familiar properties, styles, and events. They're fully documented, and each component comes with multiple examples that demonstrate its various uses.
Utilities Library (deprecated)

APIs including geocoding, local search and traffic APIs along with an advanced marker and overlay system to allow you to easily render geo-data on the map.
Badge Kit (deprecated)
The Badge Kit is an XML-based framework for rapid development of small interactive Flash applications. You can learn how to use the Badge Kit very quickly, and most of the usage scenarios require no knowledge of Flash.
