Flex Builder Linux will expire in 474 days

This release extends the time out considerably but I'm not sure if anything else has changed.


Building ColdFusion services with ColdSpring and Reactor, part 6

In the previous part, we saw how you can easily get up and running with the AOP features of ColdSpring in a ColdFusion project. But what practical use can this be put too ?
In this part I will show a simple piece of AroundAdvice that helps with reporting exceptions to clients of services. The next part will present a more complicated example - using BeforeAdvice to enforce security constraints and time-limited tokens.


Scotch on the Rocks, day 3 (live)

Sean Corfield, Event driven programming in ColdFusion
richer ui interfaces require more interaction (and less structured flow) than simply responding to clicks
decouple where things happen from what happens with them
multiple handlers for an event, how to define this:
configuration - ModelGlue, Mach-II, JavaScript and Flex
flex is more implict than JavaScript or CF frameworks - combobox listens to events on the dataProvider by itself.
convention - event user.list maps to user CFC list() method

Borre Wessel, Modularizing Flex, Cairngorm & Modules
adds complexity - do you have a good reason i.e. large, slow to start applicataion, is code easy to share cross project (i.e. a well written component)
main application (in applicationDomain hierarchy) needs to have ref to any class shared across module
rsl (non-framework) actualy make your app bigger, but are stored in the browser cache, so if your next app needs same one that will be faster to start
