Re: [Flashcoders] AIR native extension - Windows debugging

2014-09-05 Thread John McCormack

Very comprehensive!
I suppose these are the hooks that Microsoft uses when a program crashes.

Henrik, I noticed that your subject has AIR native extension.

Are you of the opinion that AIR still has a long life ahead of it?
I ask because I like AS3 and would like to write some app's for delivery 
in AIR but am afraid to go down a dead end.

Ever wanted to play with classics like ReadProcessMemory in
Actionscript? Now you can!

I have written an ANE that exposes the Windows debugging API for use in
ActionScript. It comes with a asdoc reference manual for easy API learning.

It allows access to everything you'd expect from a basic debugger as
well as from an advanced debugger. You can control memory, work with
breakpoints, deal with debugging events and more! The underlaying C code
exposes a shocking 56 functions for use in actionscript. This is the
complete debugging solution.

It's still beta, but please check it out.

The rumors of Flash dying are overblown. The Flash and AIR runtimes are
still great at what they do.

Apple pulled a stunt to shame Flash, but the truth is that they just
wanted to protect their appstore. They didn't want to kill Flash. They
wanted to kill Flash apps in the browser. They have succeeded, within
their target market. Developers obeyed the dictators and moved to the
appstore. The runtime remains great.

I just have to add, the rumors of Flash dying are overblown, is correct. 
Flash isn't dying, its already dead. Doesn't matter how good the runtime is, 
it's hardly used much anymore compared to what it used to be. Sorry, I don't 
mean to be snarky, but I just don't agree with the Flash isn't dead idea. 
Does it have to go away completely to be dead? No, but it's certainly lost 90% 
of its relevance on the WWW, and that to me, is dead.

I never really used Flash much for the WWW. I build applications and Flash is 
doing great for me. I have over a dozen apps in the iTunes store and 6 of them 
are now going over to the Android store and dozens, upon dozens are available 
for PC/MAC.

Touchscreens for trade shows, corporate and private, kiosks, video walls, 
audience polling software and the list goes on and on…

Well that's great it's going well for you. I personally don't see a lot of 
Flash-based jobs out there anymore though. But great it's not dead to you. I do

Re: [Flashcoders] AIR native extension - Windows debugging

2014-09-05 Thread John McCormack
There may have been some merit in Apple's battery argument since greater 
cpu activity, for Flash's vector format, might incur a greater energy cost.


Although Flash is having a hard time I was thinking more of using AIR, 
which I think has more life left in it.


The thing is, I have no idea how active developers are with app's 
delivered via AIR.

Are there many AIR app's being produced?

Re: [Flashcoders] AIR native extension - Windows debugging

2014-09-05 Thread Henrik Andersson
The problem here is developers not stating what runtime they use for
their apps. What can be done is checking existing apps for obvious signs
of the runtime. Shouldn't take long for someone to crawl the appstore
and check all the apps for the fingerprint of the runtime.
