In my previous post I pointed to the BlazeDS classes that need to be replaced in order to prevent ActionScript Number.NaN from turning into Long or Integer zeroes on the MessageBroker side. The recommendation boiled down to re-jaring flex-messaging-core.jar or placing the modified clas...
Adobe LCDS 3 really shines with its newly introduced model-driven development workflow. This article is not a review of its features, but rather an early feedback and some suggestions for future releases. Fire that guy who already reached his level of incompetency and said, “If one sal...
Yeah, it's this time of the year. Again. Making predictions is so tempting... This year I'll cover just the iPhone. Apple will let Flash Player on iPhone no later than October ’10. They don’t have a choice, if they want to stay competitive. Enough of a crippled Web browser already. Act...
The popularity of widgets these days has brought to attention the need for interoperability, i.e. for widgets developed for one site or platform to be able to run in other sites and widgets developed by different people to be able to work with each other. So much so that I know of ...

This is something that has been simmering below the surface for a while, but needs to come out in the open. There is a knowledge gap in the ColdFusion community and it is only getting wider. There are a lot of what would be considered 'entry-level' or 'junior' developers out there. The...
ColdFusion recently took a bit of a jump up to #19 on TIOBE Software's index of most popular programming languages (www.tiobe.com/index.htm?tiobe_index). I hadn't looked at this index in a while but it's interesting to see what CF is both above and below, and it's also nice to see the ...
If you thought that 2005 would end quietly in the i-Technology world, think again: it's going to end with a rumpus, a furore, an unprecedented worldwide commotion. Because the Secretary of the US Air Force Michael W. Wynne and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. T. Michael Moseley have just ...
I've been around software for 20 years now. Looking back, I have mixed feelings about the progress we've made. The end results have been amazing, but the process of building software hasn't fundamentally changed since the 80s. In fact, I see us making some of the same mistakes over and...
