Hi, am finding the series useful thus thanks. A couple of
- Day 2 Video: Creating custom event classes (23:06) crashes
my machine (Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise SP2, P4 with 1GB ram)
about 6 minutes in. Doesn't matter whether I have anything else
running or a fresh reboot etc.
- Perhaps I just don't know the setting to make the menu show
but the lack of a forward/back navigation is really frustrating
- I'm confused about LiveCycle (Day3). I've played with FB2
and Dreamweaver/CF and though not an expert have CF8 installed on a
different "WebServer" machine (Windows 2003 Server running IIS)
which then connects to various MySql databases. Now, I understand
that <mx:RemoteObject> uses AMF (i.e. faster than
HTTPS/WebService) and believe that RemoteObject will work with CF8.
And it seems that LiveCycle needs to sit atop an Application Server
such as JBoss (and not just IIS/Apache). Without really
understanding (despite wikipedia) what an application server is, am
I correct in saying that JBoss (apparently built atop Apache) and
LiveCycle are an alternative to IIS/ColdFusion? Or are they
supplemental? And when and why should one be used rather than the
other (it seems LiveCycle provides added features but . . . )? What
are the deployment cost implications?
I escalated the issues you are facing with the tutorials to
the concerned team.
LiveCycle DS and JBoss are not substitution for
IIS/ColdFusion. IIS and JBoss are servers. ColdFusion and LiveCycle
DS are software addressing different problems. LiveCycle DS (LCDS)
is free of cost if you are deploying it on one CPU and using it for
one application. There is an free version of LiveCycle DS, called
BlazeDS. BlazeDS has a subset of features from LCDS.
