[flexcoders] Re: Using modules and remote objects

2010-09-07 Thread valdhor
I do this all the time. My main application is a shell that loads in the app's 
layout and loads the menu's based on a users access level. This app then loads 
whatever module the user is interested in. Each module has all of its 
functionality encapsulated including its required remoting. This is all using 
Flex 3.x (Whatever the latest version is) as I don't have time to port it to 4 
yet.

Can you post some code? Flex as well as server would be good. PHP would be even 
better.

From the description on the web site you don't change that at all. It should 
point to Adobe's Livecycle collaboration Services site 
(http://www.adobe.com/ap/products/livecycle/collaborationservice/) which is an

First off, are you running 32 bit or 64 bit Java? Not to mention Eclipse (Flash 
Builder). NB: Flash Builder is built on Eclipse. It looks like it is 32 bit 
(win32 mentioned in plugins line). This will give a maximum heap size of 2GB 
which you would not be able to set it to as there would not be any memory left 
to work with. Also, a DLL may have loaded into the memory area that the JVM 
wants to use for heap (The JVM needs a contiguous block of memory). Java is 
intelligent enough to give an error if you set initial(Xms) or maximum(Xmx) 
heap size too high.

Some posts that might help you understand these settings...

Subject: [flexcoders] I don't know if I need Flex (please help me to decide)

 

  

Hi! I will try to explain my situation:
I'm a Flash developer (not a good one, just one more...), I know AS3, OOP, I
can read MXML and I've read a lot about Flex in the last days, although I
have never used it.
And there's a reason for that, the SWF size, I'm from Argentina, and here
internet is really slow in many places (mine is 128kbps for example, so to
load a SWF of just 150KB I need to wait approx. 10 seconds)

I was reading about RSL's to solve that, and it looks good, but I think
could be a lot some problems:
1) the first download will be very slow
2) if my RSL is not cached for any reason then nobody will be visiting the
site again
3) what happens if I need to protect some project? I've read an article
about Nitro-LM with RSL's (I don't know if it's the best option, for the
moment I have never protected any code...), but if our RSL is encrypted,
will be cached then?
4) I don't know, is there any other problem with RSL's? what do you think?

I was reading about using Flex without the Flex Framework, and I like that
idea, but what happens if I need a component? just one? I need to include
again +200KB of code?

I was thinking in working purely in AS3 and reusing some classes from Flex
without embedding all the framework (my first goal is to make a really light
version).
I want to use Flex because there are some classes and components that I
don't have in Flash, and I need them, like RemoteObject.

So, I need some of the Flex Classes but I need a very light SWF.
Is possible to achieve that with Flex?

Thanks!
Enrique.

[flexcoders] Re: Using modules and remote objects

2010-09-07 Thread Mike
I recently did something like this for Cisco.  They needed a way for a 
sub-Application to invoke a method in another sub-Application, which might not 
be loaded.  The solution was to derive the sub-Applications from a common base 
class and use the main Application as a broker.  The broker listened to 
function invocation request events.  Results of the method calls were made 
available by a custom event that was dispatched by the called method upon 
completion.

Here is a clue to how to implement this type of mechanism: the SWFLoader that 
loads a sub-Application has a property called content, which is actually the 
sub-Application's FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication once the sub-Application 
loads.

Confused? I created a UML sequence diagram, a static object model diagram and a 
text narrative to document how the mechanism worked.  Anyone else attempting 
something similar is well advised to do the same.

QED You have only 2GB of usable memory.

 It would be more helpful to post complete and working ini files that provide 
 800M of heap.

One person's ini file that works is probably not going to work on your system. 
It's all dependent on the DLL's that are loaded and where they position 
themselves in memory (They generally have a preferred location). In your case 
you have a loaded DLL (or more) that is/are loaded in memory somewhere inside 
the 2GB that is available. The JVM has determined that there is a contiguous 
800MB of memory and limits you to that.

Someone could post an ini file that works for him/her but they would have 
different DLL's loaded so that ini file will not work for you.

You can either try to unload the various DLL's you have or find some way to 
move their preferred memory location.

[flexcoders] Module-friendly modals

2010-09-07 Thread Richard Rodseth
Someone on the Mate forums advocated a way to treat a modal popup as a
state of a view, where the presentation model has a modalShown
property, and the view observes it using bindSetter.

This has the nice effect of avoiding the need to pass in
Application.application to createPopUp, but it's obviously quite a bit
more work to create the bubbling events and injections. And in the end
you typically want to center the popup over the whole application,
rather than some intermediate container.

So I find myself wondering if there is a cleaner way than
Application.application to refer to the root context. Follow the
DisplayObject.parent chain until it's null?

Lol... yeah there's an easier way ;-)

It's been a long time, so I can't explain fully off the top of my head, but
check out the dataTransform object and specifically invertTransform(x,y)
which takes screen coordinates and returns the axis values at that point.
 You can look into a blog post I did many years ago which will contain all
the wisdom you need (I hope), although it's fairly involved and may have a
lot you're not interested in.

Here's the post, and source link.  Specifically check out
com.cnet.annotation.view.AnnotationDrawLayer
for the getChartCoordinates() method.  Additionally, Ely Greenfield created
a solution for easy charting translations... don't remember the name of the
package, but check out his blog (www.quietlyscheming.com).
