I’ve just spent a couple hours troubleshooting a problem that I should have realized sooner. I was trying to deploy a Flex/Java application to JBoss using a Maven script (with the JBoss 1.5 plugin) and I was getting an error like this: Error opening connection java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 505 for URL: http://localhost:8080/jmx-console/HtmlAdaptor?action=invokeOpByName&name=jboss.system:service%3DMainDeployer&methodName=undeploy&argType=java.net.URL&arg0=file:C:\Documents […]

You could experience asynchrony with Ajax, but as someone who’s used both considerably… I just find I have more time for fun when […]

The only SOAP requests I’ve ever made were made on the .NET platform. They’re not that much of a beast on .NET, but it wasn’t exactly a cake walk either. So I had been bracing myself for the worst trying to implement it in PHP. I should explain that my lab 5 client connects to […]

I’m almost finished with lab 5. On the whole it’s been pretty fun, aside from some of the frustration from minute details that take an hour apiece to hammer out. I had developed most of my application as a web app before the specs came out. Fortunately I was using Flex, so let me show […]
