Flash Lite Online Packager is an experimental online tool for packaging a Flash Lite application into a SIS file for deploying on Symbian platform. The online tool is reaching to its end of lifecycle and Nokia will not continue the service by June 30, 2013. If developer needs to packager their Flash Lite application for existing Symbian devices, please use the manual method (see Q&A below)
We also want to encourage developers to start looking at alternative for application creation, such as Windows Phone developer for Lumia devices and Java/Web apps for Asha devices. If you have more questions, please reply to this post.
Q. Can I continue to develop with Flash Lite for existing devices?
A. Flash Lite is still running on lots of Nokia devices. However, our new devices will start not to have the technology. We encourage developers to start looking at alternatives for application creation, such as Windows Phone development for Lumia devices and Java/web apps for Asha devices.
Q: Without the online packager how do I package my Flash Lite app?
A: The online tool provides an easy way to package your app. However there we have document other ways to package Flash Lite app manually here: Create Flash Applications with Carbide.c++

Q: When do you shutdown the server?
A. We are planning to shutdown the server by June 30th, 2013.
