As you probably already know, AIR 1.5 is now available. New features include database encryption, Flash Player 10 support, and an updated version of WebKit. I updated my Salesbuilder sample application to leverage the AIR 1.5 capabilities. Salesbuilder 1.5 leverages the new database encryption feature to allow you to secure your local database. The first […]
I will demonstrate some new and really exciting features of LiveCycle Data Services “Next” tomorrow (Monday), as part of my session called “Introduction to BlazeDS and LiveCycle Data Services ES”. I hope to see you there if you are interested in Data Services for Flex. Introduction to BlazeDS and LiveCycle Data Services ES Moscone West […]
Anil is now blogging about LiveCycle Data Services and BlazeDS at http://anilchannappa.org.
I will be speaking at FlexCamp Boston on December 12 at the Bentley College in Waltham. Last year’s edition was a big hit and I’m looking forward to speaking there again. The title of my Session is “Liberate your Data with AIR, BlazeDS and LCDS”. I will be showing some of the new and exciting […]

Other developers don’t use the data management service at all because of its perceived complexity. The Data Management Service provides a set of low […]

You can create a room, or join an existing one. In addition to chatting, MapRooms allows you to collaborate on a map: the application […]
LCDS 2.6 allows you to build AIR applications with automatic offline data synchronization. This feature leverages the SQLite relational database system embedded in the AIR runtime, but the advantage is that the data synchronization process is entirely automatic: you don’t have to write SQL statements or synchronization logic to keep your local database in sync […]
I recently posted an example of a “Live Help / Call Center” application built with Flex and BlazeDS. A number of you have asked me for the source code. So here it is…
I recently posted a number of examples (Yahoo Maps Collaboration and Collaborative Data Entry) showing how to use the BlazeDS / LCDS Message Service to build collaborative applications. In this post, I’m extending the Collaborative Forms application to provide an example of a more complete and real life “Live Help / Call Center” application.
After Yahoo Maps collaboration, here is another example of enabling collaboration in a Flex application using the publish/subscribe messaging infrastructure of BlazeDS. This example demonstrates “collaborative forms” (or “collaborative data entry”). Users in different locations can fill in forms “together” in a real-time and in-context collaboration session: changes made by one user are automatically reflected […]
