My ColdFusion VPS runs IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003.  I wanted to run Apache 2.2 on this server as well, and bind it to the IP address that IIS 6.0 wasn’t using.  I opened the IIS management console to force IIS to listen on a single IP address, but when trying to start Apache […]

One of my ongoing weekend projects is an AIR chat application, recently rechristened “JUICE” a.k.a. “John’s Ultimate Internet Chat Experience”. I realize that may only be the case for myself, but the project has been very educational and entertaining for me. The initial release used AIR/Flex as the front-end, ColdFusion and MySQL for the backend, […]

I recently built a console for inspecting arbitrary values contained in my data model.  I wanted something similar to the Flex Builder “Variables” window, and though I haven’t arrived there quite yet, I’ll share what I’ve got so far. The mechanics are a little boring: I extended TitleWindow, there is a TextInput where I enter […]

This is part two of a two part series. See part one, Messaging with Flex/ColdFusion via BlazeDS : Part 1 (CF configuration) This installment will go over setting up messaging in Flex, and assumes everything is working correctly on the server. Recall I will be covering two scenarios. A client-publish/client-subscribe model, and a server-publish/client-subscribe model. […]

I just went through setting up Flex / ColdFusion messaging via BlazeDS, and have come through it rather unscarred considering it’s my first time using Flex messaging. Most of the documentation I have regarding messaging is biased toward Java (including the sample apps included with BlazeDS). A lot of what I found online, though very […]

I started this post a few months ago while I was working on an AIR application that uploads files to a remote server (by way of an upload script).  I ran into this error, Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent; text=Error #2038: File I/O Error,  which caused me considerable grief until I discovered the simple solution.  I got […]

Adobe Flex 3 Bible by David Gassner doesn’t contain anything ground breaking or spectacular, but overall I was impressed with both the breadth and depth of the book.  Granted, at roughly the thickness of a real Bible (978 pages including index), it would be quite a shame not to achieve some depth. What I especially appreciated […]

I created a new site where I hope to start posting screencasts of some of the training I’ve been working on.  Nothing great yet, but I hope I can build up a helpful library over time.  More than anything it helps me understand these concepts better. URL updated. Well, here it is: http://flexplanations.com You’ll need […]

I first came across Flex Solutions, Essential Techniques for Flex 2 and 3 Developers, by Marco Casario, several months ago.  I was getting an itch to buy a new Flex book and this was one of the titles that turned up in my searches.  It received fairly high reviews at Amazon, but I was unimpressed […]

I may be doing an internship this summer, at which I will begin developing back-end support for my Flex applicatiopns using Cold Fusion.  I may be posting on that in the future, depending on how it goes.  I just wanted to document two resources I will be using along this process. The first is The Smith […]
