How to connect Air with Thunderbolt?

How do I connect Air with Thunderbolt?
Bought Air in Oct 2011 and Thunderbolt today. 
Does Mac OS X (10.6.5) work with Thunderbolt?
Do I need a special cable other than what came in box?

Hey moxiedoggy,
Welcome to Apple Support Communities! It sounds like you want to use Target Display Mode to use your iMac as a second screen to your MacBook Air. Since your said your MacBook Air is from 2011, it should have the thunderbolt, and you can connect the two computers using the following instructions:
Use an iMac with Thunderbolt as a display
If you have an iMac with Thunderbolt, any other Mac with Thunderbolt can use it as a display. The iMac will play both the video and audio from the other Mac.
Connect the Thunderbolt cable to the Thunderbolt ports on each computer.
Make sure both Mac computers are turned on and awake.
Press Command (⌘)-F2 on the keyboard of the external display Mac.
If you want the external display Mac to play audio as well as video from the primary Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Sound, and then click Output. Select the external display Mac from the list of devices.
You'll want to go over the requirements for using Target Display Mode here, along with other FAQs:

    Are you referring to mirroring or you just unable to set up homesharing.
    AirPlay Mirroring requires a second-generation Apple TV or later, OS X 10.8 or better and is supported on the following Mac models: iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer). It also requires the computer to be using wi-fi.

  • HT5219 Can I use 2 displays when I connect a 1920x1080 display through Thunderbolt to the 27 cinema display when it´s connected to the all new 13" Mac Book Air with thunderbolt?

    Can I use 2 displays when I connect a 1920x1080 display through Thunderbolt to the 27 cinema display when it´s connected to the all new 13" Mac Book Air with thunderbolt?

    Thank you, I have read that I could daisy chain the HD RAID enclosure on one of the thunderbolt ports with another monitor, if the monitor were at the end of the chain, but I do not know if the other port would still simultaneously support yet another external display at the same time.

    Is the display turned on? Sometimes it is the simplest of solutions, when details are missing.

    How i connect iBooks with itunes on my nas?

    I have been suckered by this problem too. I had all my e-books, mostly PDFs, saved on my NAS and available in iTunes. I wanted to access them from my old iMac with OS X 10.6.8 and my new iMac with OS X 10.9. But when the files were moved to iBooks, they disappeared from the NAS and now I'm in a mess. Thanks, Apple :-(

  • Connecting AIR with external database

    Is it possible to connect AIR application to the external database in MySQL technology?

    Are you trying to connect to a MySQL database on a web server somewhere? If so, by far the easiest way to do so is to use some sort of application server layer (e.g. PHP, ColdFusion, Java) on the web server, and have the AIR application call the PHP (or whatever) code to get the data. That is the approach that all the links Greg has given you are talking about.
    Of course, in order to make that work you need to know enough PHP/Java/ColdFusion to write that middle layer. In the example you're asking about, the information it wants to know is the name of the server that the MySQL database is running on, and the MySQL username and password for the MySQL account that your PHP code is supposed to use. There are tons of resources on the web for writing PHP code that accesses MySQL, so you'll find much more and better information in other places than what you'll find in the Adobe AIR forums.
    However, maybe you want to have the MySQL server running directly on the user's computer rather than on a web server somewhere. In that case you would have a few options:
    Run a web server and application server (e.g. Apache and PHP) on the user's computer and use those to connect between the AIR application and the MySQL server.
    Write Java code to communicate between the MySQL server and the AIR app, and call that code using Merapi (http://merapiproject.net/)
    Run the MySQL server on the user's computer and call the server directly from AIR using ActionScript. While there is no built-in support for MySQL in AIR, there is a third-party (open source) library for calling MySQL directly from ActionScript available here: http://code.google.com/p/assql/. I haven't tested it so I have no idea how complete it is, but it's a solution to consider.
    However, in all three cases you're depending on some external pieces that have to be installed and loaded separate from your AIR application. (For instance, most users probably don't want a MySQL server running on their computer all the time if they aren't using your AIR app all the time -- so you'd want a way to start and stop the server, which also couldn't be done directly in AIR.) People do write applications that use external resources like this, but it's not the easiest thing to implement.
    If you're really wanting to run the database locally, the best solution (assuming it works for your needs) is to use AIR's built in local SQL database engine (based on SQLite). If you've looked at that option already, and found that it doesn't work for you, I'd be interested to know more about what you're trying to accomplish that you can't accomplish with the AIR local database.

  • Anyone else having trouble connecting MBP with thunderbolt port (TBp) and 27"iMac with mini display port (MDp)

    I have a 27" Imac.i7 with mini displayport and MBP13 i5 with thunderbolt port. Some time ago I tried to connect my old MBP with miniDP  to The 27"iMac I Failed so did the apple centre they refunded cable costs and said I'd be contacted by Cupertino. That was 9 months ago, now replaced MBP with 13 inch(**** I can use my iMac as display!). Does not work phoned Fast Lane very helpful guy called JIM emailed me some software/firmware update links.  Still no display linking. One of the links was for a couple of updates for a TBp equiped 27" iMac mine is only MDp equiped. Failing to find any MDp updates in apple support.  Anyone have any Ideas!  My lad has a later 27"i5 he uses Xbox 360 no problem on his but it wont look at my MBP.
    Beginning to feel like some of the kit that went with a fully loaded 5500 worked eventually. Computer and FM radio, Photography kit fine, video capture audio capture forget it.  Too many crashes and resets made it impractical.

    Hi Shajon --
    Unfortunately, we're not permitted to give specific release dates/estimates - the best I can offer is that FMW 12c (which will contain WLS 12.1.2) is due to ship in CY 2013.
    I can probably provide you with the GlassFish chat example we have running on WLS (v.minor changes in API) to give you a sense of what it looks like.
