Adobe Air on 64bit systems

Jan. 15, 2011, 7:22 a.m. air , RIA , Ubuntu , virtualization

What's the most god damned piece of software that you might have to install on a 64 bit linux system? It's either Adobe Air or Adobe Flash. Of course there are free alternatives to adobe flash like gnash, but they are much worse. My solution for flash is to live without it, but unfortunately I need ...

ExtJS , YUI and jQuery

May 3, 2010, 12:12 p.m. Ajax , ExtJS , JavaScript , jQuery , RIA , YUI

I needed to build a data grid, and even though I am a big fan of jQuery, I thought of using YUI instead. It's just a matter of keeping up with the Joneses (I wasn't familiar with YUI at the time this was started). A data grid has many names, the geeks at Yahoo! call it a DataTable. Call it by any n ...

Netbeans, Aptana and Debugging AIR Apps

Dec. 26, 2009, 3:07 a.m. air , netbeans , RIA

It's been a while since Aptana 2.0 came out. I ignored it till version 2.02 was out. As usually happens with most software, what worked in previous versions doesn't work in the new version. Now if this had been with version 2.0, you could have just said someone forgot to do a regression test but not ...

A struggled for a while to get Adobe Air installed on my fedora 11 box, so that I may run TweetDeck. Finally I did get it running and was happily using TweetDeck for a short while.

Barking Up the Wrong Tree.

July 16, 2009, 10:18 a.m. netbeans , RIA

Thought of trying out Aptana for two reasons; the first being the fact that it has support for Adobe Air and secondly I wanted try to an alternative to Netbeans cause Netbeans 6.7 is such a memory hog. Netbeans has always been a memory hog but this version really takes the cake. It's is worse than p ...

If developers are expected to embrace JavaFX, at least the compiler should be stable. Unfortunately it isn't. Note: An internal error has occurred in the OpenJFX compiler. Please file a bug at the Openjfx-compiler issues home (https://openjfx-compiler.dev.java.net/Issues) after checking for duplicat ...

Fedora 11 and Tweetdeck.

May 19, 2009, 7:54 a.m. javafx , lame , RIA

Having become a twitter addict, tweetdeck was amongst the first batch of applications that I tried to  install on my fresh Fedora 11 installation. But to install, tweetdeck you need to install Adobe Air and that got off to a bad start. [[email protected] ~]# /home/raditha/Download/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin ...

JavaFX On Linux.

Jan. 8, 2009, 10:17 a.m. javafx , Macbook , netbeans , RIA

Despite a lot of lip service about being supportive of the open source movement Sun is yet to come up with an official release of Java FX for Linux till now.  In spite of this JavaFX does show up in the Netbeans plugin installer, but when you try to install it the following error message pops up: ...
