1. Create a Flex mobile Project

2. Name the Project and set the Flex sdk version

3. Create the View type of the application Tab-based view application

4. Set up the Data connection by choosing HTTP service connection

5. Set the service name, and URL for data retrieval, set the URL parameters

6. Test the data connection and see the data result format

7. Run the Application by selecting the desktop phone model or a connected device

8. View the final Application
