In one of our Flex – Java projects, our team recently encountered an unexpected issue with a couple of assets when compiling the Flex application on Windows machines.
For some time now, I’ve been using Eclipse with the Flex Builder plug-in to code my Java/Flex projects. Recently I’ve decided to switch from Flex Builder 3 to Flash Builder 4. And since Eclipse Galileo had just been released, I just had to add it to the migration stack and let go of good ol’ [...]
While checking up what’s new on Cornel’s blog, I read his recent post on this new massively multiplayer online game called Tanki Online. It’s a game with, well d’oh, tanks.

A part of our team’s “definition of done” is having unit-tests in place and, unofficially, a minimum of 80% code coverage. Our Maven-based build process runs the tests and then creates code coverage reports in HTML format, that we can then consult in the documentation that Maven generates. Along with other reports, this helps us [...]
In a project I’m currently working on we’re using LiveCycle Data Services to expose Java back-end services to a Flex client application. The back-end is structured in several layers using some flavors of Spring “glue”. You can see below the basic building blocks of the back-end : As you can see, the architecture is quite [...]
When you write developer tests, you start with just a few and as your code base gets larger and larger, so does the number of tests. The build starts to take more and more time and soon you avoid running the build as often as possible. If you get to this, then you need to [...]
I use the Flex Builder plug-in on top of Eclipse for Flex development . When it comes to coding in Flex, I often find myself missing all of those subtle but priceless options that Eclipse’s Java editor has, like the code formatting, code templates, commenting style or the all-mighty “Save Actions” option which automatically performs [...]
