2008: Decision Year for RIAs - October 20-22, 2008 San Jose

Anyone who ever monitored or analyzed an application uses or has used averages. They are simple to understand and calculate. We tend to ignore just how wrong the picture is that averages paint of the world. To emphasis the point let me give you a real-world example outside of the perfo...
Today, Adobe has announced three software releases: Flash Builder 4, ColdFusion Builder, and Social service. That's right, after about two years of development Adobe has finally released Flash Builder 4 (a successor of Flex Builder 3). Why it took Adobe so long to release it? An exp...



There are many different types of command line options that programs need to recognize. Many languages (e.g.: bash and perl) has built-in processing of command line options; Java does not. The Java Command Line Options (JCLO) package performs this task for a va...

With the arrival of .NET 3.5, WPF and the RTM of Silverlight 2, .NET developers have more choices than ever for designing, developing and deploying compelling applications with rich user interfaces. However, there are other mainstream alternatives that don’t fall into the .NET camp. Wh...
Many Flex and Flash developers were waiting for these news for a year. The public Beta 1 of new Flash Builder 4, Flash Catalyst and Flex 4 SDK (previously codenamed Gumbo) has been released by Adobe. First, about the name change. What used to be known as Flex Builder is Flash Builder n...
I'd like to share with you my experience of working with LiveCycle ES 8.2. This strong player in the BPM space version has been released in July of 2008.
Eighteen months ago Flex 2 was released, which literally changed the way people think of rich Internet applications. Since then lots of things have happened in the Flex community. In 2007 Adobe announced that Flex will go open source, and now it has happened. All ActionScript 3 and Ja...
In my opinion this is THE biggest announcement that I?ve heard from Adobe since the release Flex 2 in the Summer of 2006. This is bigger than open sourcing Flex. This is bigger than AIR. Here's the news: Adobe is open sourcing AMF protocol and messaging under LGPL V3. Christophe Coenra...
The AMF file format is a binary file format representing a serialized ActionScript object. This file type is used in many places within the Flash Player and AIR for data storage and data exchange. In Flash Player 9 and AIR, the flash.utils.ByteArray class is the primary way AMF is hand...
'The Java backlash,' writes Bruce Eckel, 'has been building up steam, and we're starting to see some fundamental shifts because of it.' Java has been around for 10 years yet applets are not the primary way that we interact with the web. Applets are not ubiquitous, and everyone got exci...
Adobe has announced that a large portion of the next version of Flex goes open source under Mozilla Public License (MPL). Here's the partial list of what becomes open: mxml, compc, and ActionScript compiler, command line debugger FDB, Flex framework and RPC libraries and testing infras...
Neil Balthaser has been awarded a Patent relating to the online production of RIAs using RIAs over a remote connection. I find this incredible given the number of Flash applications that were around at that time that must have existed to be listed as prior art that would have shown qui...

As a Web developer, trainer, and conference speaker, the question I am asked most frequently is, 'Where is this industry going?' My answer is one simple word: Flash!!!
I am a Web application developer. That can mean a number of things these days, but in my case, it means I write code on both the client and the server to make a complete 'application.' For many of us, the client-side code is JSP - JavaServer Pages. Perhaps, like me, you find JSP to be ...
'Flex' - Macromedia's code-based way of building applications that target the Flash run-time - is being extended from today in an attempt to woo Java developers into bringing the power of Java to the Flash Player. 'You can still edit and code as a Java developer, but as you're doing it...
