Flex Programming Tips of the Week 0308b

Posted by Charles | March 29, 2008 .

There are more and more great contributions from Flex community, which is stronger and bigger. Here are handful of them in this week:

LiveCycle ES vs LiveCycle DS vs BlazeDS -Greg Wilson tried to clear up the confusion among these terms/products. Indeed it’s about time for just this. While the UI part of Flex RIA is maturing, the focus is (should) moving to the integration of server side business logics. The DS gong is playing a essential role within the RIA server domain.

Forcing Single Instance of Flex App – A straight up tip for who ever wants to develop consistent single instance application. I’m always confused by Microsoft Office’s inconsistent when open up their tools and found sometime it’s multi-doc, sometime is multi-instance. We can do better.

Next-gen Flex Sticky Tooltip – Utilizing tooltip for more sophisticated UI function is a popular trendy design approach within both AJAX and Flash/Flex based RIA development. This post is not exactly a “next-gen” but it does points to a very useful Flash tool, Away3D engine. The demo here shows the nice tooltip effect.

Free Flex Application Icons – when more and more Flex developers are NOT coming from Flash designer world, visual helps are increasingly needed to maintain the sexier-UI status of Flex applications. Thank you, Dolres Joya, for making Flex application beautiful as usual. Every small effort counts, thank you!

Have a good weekend!
