Enterprise Flex Symposium

Attend this full day technical symposium. Meet with Flex practitioners, and get ready to build your enterprise rich Internet application right the first time. The speakers of this event are co-authors of the book "Development of RIA with Flex and Java" .

Session Schedule

Comparison of Flex Frameworks
Presenter: Yakov Fain, 9AM-10AM

The goal of any framework is to make the process of  software development and maintenance easier. There are different ways of achieving this goal. Some people prefer working with frameworks  that are based on the Model-View-Controller pattern, while other like dealing with class libraries of components. Each approach has its pros and cons. During this session we’ll go over the same application that was built using Cairngorm, Clear, PureMVC and Mate frameworks and compare the results.

Enterprise Portals with Flex: Challenges and Solutions
Presenter: Dr. Victor Rasputnis, 10AM-11AM

Web portals are popular ways to organize all kinds of enterprise information . Your organization may already have a number of Flex applications that should live together in the same Web portal, for example, market news, the latest stock prices, a charting application et al. Not only these Flex applications should be displayed in the same portal as portlets delivered by Flash Player, they should be able to communicate with each other. Developing of Flex portals may be both challenging and rewarding experience. This presentation should help you in making an important architectural decision – staying with one of the available HTML-based portals or designing a new one with Adobe Flex.

11:00-11:15   Break

Open Source Networking  Solutions for Flex Applications   
Presenter: Anatole Tartakovsky, 11:30AM-12:30PM

Open sourcing of Flex framework in general and its communication protocols and server-side components in particular play an important role in adoption of Flex by enterprises. While large scale applications most likely will be empowered by LiveCycle Data Services, the smaller ones will find open source server-side components very useful.  BlazeDS is an open source implementation of the highly-compressed AMF communication  protocol by Adobe. In this presentation you’ll get an overview of the AMF protocol, and we’ll show you how you can push the BlazeDS limits by adding server-side push techniques with this cost effective and efficient solution for RIA. Third-parties offer their versions of AMF implementation and we’ll provide a brief review of such software.

12:30PM – 1:30PM / Lunch (provided)

Free Eclipse Plugins for Developing  RIA with Flex
Presenter: Yakov Fain, 1:30PM-2:30PM

Eclipse can help tremendously in development of rich Internet applications (RIA)—especially if you have the right plugins. During this presentation we'll walk through the highly-automated process of  creation of RIA  using several  free Eclipse plugins that are part of the Clear Toolkit.  The first plugin will generate a CRUD application having Adobe Flex talking to  POJO on the server ,which in turn communicates with a DBMS.  Then,  another  plugin will generate ANT build script for this application. The third plugin will add logging  capabilities. Finally, you'll see a demo of DTO2Fx - an auto-generator of  ActionScript Data Transfer Objects based on their Java peers. The presenter will annoy you with not more than  five Power Point slides. He'll spend the rest of this presentation developing the application described above.

Developing  Flex applications for LiveCycle ES
Presenter: Dr. Victor Rasputnis, 2:30PM-3:30PM

Adobe LiveCycle is an SOA platform that runs on Java EE application servers, and this presentation is about creating enterprise workflows using this tool. You’ll see how to use a Web browser based UI written in Flex to streamline the part of the workflow that requires user interaction.  You’ll get familiar with  the process of extending LiveCycle with your application-specific services, and creation of complex PDF documents. You’ll also learn how to integrate LiveCycle ES functionality with your existing Flex-based applications.

3:30PM-3:45PM   Break

Enterprise Reporting with Flex         
Presenter: Anatole Tartakovsky, 3:45PM-4:45PM

Reporting  is often one of the most time consuming tasks in developing  of many enterprise application. Just using Flex printing API would require allocation of substantial budget and human resources.  This presentation will cover Flex printing techniques and work with PDF. You'll also see an advanced open source   Web reporter ClearBI.
