From Web to Desktop

Purchase Reports Online Yesterday Screenweaver HX was announced as part of the haxe framework.
With SWHX, you create an application by using two layers :

  • the System layer : written in haXe and using the Neko API, you can access the local filesystem, databases, network sockets… You can also easily extend its capabilities by writing your own DLL.
  • the Flash layer : written in haXe or any other technology capable of producing SWF, you can use this layer to display the graphical interface, handle user interactions, play sound and video…

Unfortunately I’m trying to install haxe/swhx on my Windows Vista but I’m not lucky at the moment 🙁

How To Write A Application Essay The second project is directly from Adobe labs, called Apollo (flash, html, and pdf together), and currently it’s only a long description of what it can do and a list of F.A.Q., but Adobe says it will be pre-released on Adobe labs in the second half of 2006..

I’ve also found a diagram which display makeup of an Apollo application.

Who Can I Get To Write My Paper For Me Apollo is the code name for a cross-operating system runtime being developed by Adobe that allows developers to leverage their existing web development skills (Flash, Flex, HTML, JavaScript, Ajax) to build and deploy Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) to the desktop.

Flex2 crazyness

After the interesting actionscript.it conference I decided to give more of my free time to http://www.smn.gob.hn/?please-write-my-essay-for-money Please Write My Essay For Money Flex2 and expecially to components creation.
I must admit that ActionScript 3.0 documentation is probably the best documentation I ever seen about flash, but I can’t say the same thing about Flex developement.
Once I had to look for advanced features of Flex components, advanced compiler options etc.. I began to slam against a wall. The developer compoents guide is incomplete and does not cover all the aspects and it has some errors probably due to incorrect revision after the beta program.
So I had to search in the livedocs, but here there are missing links (many links still point to the beta version and they’ve benn removed) and the informations are spread in completely different pages…

Anyway, this is my first test with Flex2 components.. I just made a porting of my color picker as2 component.. that’s because the builtin flex2 picker is too poor.

The problem with the compiled SWC file is that Flex displays also all the other classes used in the component as they are different UI components and I didn’t find anywhere how to compile with compc an swc file which exposes just the UIComponent I want. The documentation says about “-include-component” compiler option, but it’s an error because the compiler does not allow that option!
This is the script I’m using for compiling it:

1
compc -source-path="." -namespace http://www.sephiroth.it/2006/mxml mxml-manifest.xml -if assets.swf images\assets.swf -if CPicker.png CPicker.png -include-namespaces http://www.sephiroth.it/2006/mxml -output "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 2\Flex SDK 2\frameworks\libs\sephiroth\CPicker.swc"

Flash 9 Preview & Flex 2

On Adobe Labs (http://labs.adobe.com) it’s finally available a preview version of Flash 9. described as “A preview of the next release of the Flash authoring tool, scheduled for release in 2007, extends the capabilities of Flash Professional 8 to include support for the new ActionScript 3.0 language in Flash Player 9.”

To download the preview it’s necessary an Adobe account (you can create one, it’s free) while the installation needs a licensed copy of Flash Professional 8 or Studio 8, because a serial number will be asked during the software setup.
Finally, after Flex 2 Betas, we’ll try also the new Flash IDE!

By the way, Flex 2 seems available at http://www.adobe.com/products/flex/ !
As promised the Flex 2 SDK is available for free:

IE’s ActiveX D-Day

As Microsoft announced time ago, the next generation of Internet Explorer will change the way the browser handles ActiveX controls with a significant impact on how online advertising and streaming media content is delivered over the Internet.
The software maker plans to give Web developers an extra 60 days to continue making preparations.
The big push now is for developers to recode Web sites and Web applications to cater for the browser update. If not, users won’t be able to directly interact with Microsoft ActiveX controls loaded by the APPLET, EMBED or OBJECT elements without first activating the user interface with an extra mouse click.
