Few questions on Flex customization

Hi,
I've just started to customize a LiveCycle instalation for the first time. I'm using Flash Builder, and Flex 3.4.1. - LCES2 as SDK.
I have a few questions:
1) The process of building (with Ant) is painfully slow. It lasts over a minute (1:03) to build and publish the ".ear" file (the CPU is Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q 6600 @ 2.40GHz).
Does in have to be like that or am I doing something wrong here? Do I have to use "Cray" os something?
2) As I see, the Workspace version we are using is built from the 'old' Halo components, and not Spark components.
Is it because we have an old LC version? Can it be updated to a Flex 4 version? Can it work with the same server-side? Does a newer version exist?
3) What we NEED to use (bottom line) is TLF (Flex Layout Framework). It depends on Flash Player 10. Can it be done with Flex 3.4.1.-LCES2?

One minute is about right. This is because ANT is packaging the compiled source into an WAR and EAR file. If you just want to work with the code and not deploy it, you can switch back and use the "Flex" builder. You will see some unresolved SWCs. Just resolve each error by point to the SWC file that is created undre the export folder for each of the api and foundation projects.  If you need more details, let me know.

Is it because we have an old LC version? Can it be updated to a Flex 4 version? Can it work with the same server-side? Does a newer version exist?
No. You must use 3.4.1 from the LiveCycle ES2 DVD or the FLex SDK from the Workbench ES2 folder. 3.4.1 is the only version that has been tested and certificated with the release.
3) What we NEED to use (bottom line) is TLF (Flex Layout Framework). It depends on Flash Player 10. Can it be done with Flex 3.4.1.-LCES2?
Sorry, I'm not familiar with that but I can run Workspace using the latest version of Flash Player 10.2.  But if the TLF was introdced post Flex 3.4.1, then it probably won't work. Try checking the Flex forums for that answer. Again, apologies, I don't have an answer for this.
Hope that helps!

  • Flex and pure AS3, a few questions.

    Hi all,
    I have been developing AS3-only applications and am now looking into Flex. I have a few questions I would like to get more information on:
    - is there a difference in performance between the CS3 components and the Flex components? What would be the key differences between the two?
    - same question regarding drawing, is there a performance difference between drawing say, 10000 circles using pure AS3 and the same using mxml?
    I hope the question are not too broad and will appreciate any feedback!
    Thanks.

    FLex components are always more resource hungry due to the amount of stuff UIComponent has to do, like the
    component lifecycle.
    Although FXG drawing is pretty good.

  • Few questions on EB-SUS scenario?

    Dear Experts,
    I have few questions on EB-SUS scenario which you may help with your expertise. It will be helpful for those who are new to scenario?
    1. EB (enterpise Buyer or SRM) -SUS scenario is used for requesting external staff? can it be used for non stock or free text items in extended classic? does it support direct material procurement ?
    2. Does EB-SUS or SRM-sus support service item with hierarchy like MM-SUS?
    3. EB-SUS scenario is basically on extended classic or standalone scenario? But, in extended classic scenario, it does support only Purchase order and PO response scenario? What badi's or customization is required to enable the confirmation and invoice for extended scenarios?
    Full marks for good answers !!!
    Thanks and regards,
    Ranjan

    Hi,
    I am also interested in this question with another view of it:
    - Can SUS be used together with SRM (EB) for consumables in standalone scenario?
    - What are your experiences with SUS in general. I foresee that we would need some add-on development to the solution, is this easily done or does it take a lot of effort?
    Thanks for any good input

  • A few questions and some things we found about Memory Management

    We have been development a pretty complex RIA in flash; true
    we probably should have used flex but we are very heavily invested
    in flash and moving to flex was not really an option due to time
    constraints and the learning curve associated with changing. That
    reminds me are the Flex UI Objects going to be made available for
    Flash CS3 I mean that advanced datagrid would be nice?
    The application is a order processing and document
    management system that has around 150 swf’s and I am posting
    here to let people know what we found through our development and
    testing cycles and also have a few questions that I am hoping
    someone will at least point me in the right direction.
    We were kind of disappointed to find that you could no
    longer duplicate Movies and were forced to reload them if we wanted
    different instances, but we got over that fast. Keeping this in
    mind we decided to make as many dynamic screens as we could but
    these turned out to be horribly time consuming. I mean sure we
    could make the fields jump around like fleas on a dogs back (and it
    was a great joke) but not very practical. So back to the IDE and
    fla creation we went. This leads me to my first question has anyone
    see heard of or thought about a SWF file reader that would read the
    layout of a SWF and then generate the actionscript as output?
    As we were developing we found that it was more complex, and
    I think unnecessarily so, to get connected to a database. We use
    ColdFusion as our “middleware” so it wasn’t to
    bad and this leads me to my next question. Is there or has there
    been any indication that Flex data services or well I guess BlazeDS
    now is available for Flash CS3?
    So we went on our merry little way and everything was going
    great until testing this is when we started to see what kind of
    memory flash really eats up. In the beginning our app would take up
    a gig through the course of a day.
    Any Class that we created we added a CleanUp method to it.
    Yes we used weak listeners, yes we destroyed, and all references to
    the main movies, and yes that was it the main movies.
    Don’t be fooled the same way we were. The Garbage
    collection simulation
    http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/garbage_collection.html
    does not really tell you the whole story. Even though if you cut
    the line from the root the simulation suggests that the rest of the
    objects that you have created within that object will be marked and
    collected. Not so.
    After much testing we found that if we wanted a full recovery
    of memory the object and it’s sub objects and sub sub ojects
    within arrays also with sub objects must be deallocated and then
    assinged null to get full collection, I say full but really mean
    between 90-95% reminds me of my C programming days.

  • Few questions about apex + epg and cookie blocked by IE6

    Hi,
    I would like to ask a few questions about apex and epg.
    I have already installed and configured apex 3.2 on oracle 10g (on my localhost - computer name 'chen_rong', ip address -192.168.88.175 ), and enable anonymous access xdb http server.
    now,
    1. I can access 'http://chen_rong' , 'http://localhost' , 'http://192.168.88.175' without input username / password for realm 'XDB' in IE6;
    2. I can access 'http://localhost/apex/apex_admin' , 'http://192.168.88.175/apex/apex_admin' , and I can be redirected into apex administation page after input admin/<my apex admin password> for realm 'APEX' in IE6;
    3. I can access 'http://chen_rong/apex/apex_admin' in IE6, but after input admin/password , I can not be redirected into administation page, because the cookie was blocked by IE6.
    then, the first question is :
    Q1: What is the difference among 'http://chen_rong' , 'http://localhost' , 'http://192.168.88.175' ? I have already include site 'chen_rong' into my trusted stes! why the cookie was blocked by IE6. I have already tried firefox and google browser, both of them were ok for 'chen_rong', no cookie blocked from site 'chen_rong'!
    and,
    1. I have tried to use the script in attachment to test http authentication and also want to catch the cookie by utl_http .
    2. please review the script for me.
    3. I did:
    SQL> exec show_url('http://localhost/apex/apex_admin/','ADMIN','Passw0rd');
    HTTP response status code: 401
    HTTP response reason phrase: Unauthorized
    Please supplied the required Basic authentication username/password for realm XDB for the Web page.
    Web page http://localhost/apex/apex_admin/ is protected.

    Content-Length: 147
    ======================================
    PL/SQL procedure successfully completed
    4. I also did :
    SQL> exec show_url('http://localhost/apex/apex_admin/','ANONYMOUS','ANONYMOUS');
    HTTP response status code: 500
    HTTP response reason phrase: Internal Server Error
    Check if the Web site is up.

    Content-Length: 147
    WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="APEX"
    ======================================
    PL/SQL procedure successfully completed
    my second questions is :
    Q2: After I entered into realm 'XDB', I still need went into realm'APEX'. how could I change the script show_url to accomplish these two tasks and successfully get the cookie from site.
    the show_url script is as following:

    I use oracle database enterprise edtion 10.2.0.3. I have already figured out the epg on 10.2.0.3 to support apex 3.2.
    And as I described above, the apex site works fine for ip address , and localhost. but the cookie will be blocked by IE6, if I want to access the site by 'http://computername:port/apex/apex_admin'. This problem does not occured in firefox and google browser. Could someone give me answer?

  • Adobe to ditch flash for mobile devices! A few questions

    Just read the news. Have a few questions
    1. Is AIR still going to be used for cross platform deployment as that is what I am using now ie: will it be used to deploy html5 apps/programmes?
    2. What tool/IDE will adobe be using for html5 - flash? flex?
    3. All of our multimedia swfs etc... - can they be exported/used in an html5 environment
    4. html5 coding - is it similar to actionscript 3 ie: do we have to start all over again - back to school?
    5. Games coded with actionscript 3. Can these games be exported to html5 or must they be rewritten?
    Flash stays for pc it looks like.
    So it is no longer multiplatform - we will have to code for flash on pc and html5 for mobile devices - is that right or will there be some kind of packager that will export our flash to html5
    Just a few questions

    I don't work for Adobe so my understanding may not be 100% accurate but here we go...
    1. Is AIR still going to be used for cross platform deployment as that is what I am using now ie: will it be used to deploy html5 apps/programmes?
    Adobe will be concentrating on developing AIR for packaging  apps for mobile devices. AIR is ActionScript based and it does not produce HTML5 apps.
    2. What tool/IDE will adobe be using for html5 - flash? flex?
    HTML5 itself is just a flavour of HTML and therefore Dreamweaver is the Adobe tool for it For Javascript based timeline animation etc, Adobe has Edge http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/edge/
    3. All of our multimedia swfs etc... - can they be exported/used in an html5 environment
    Adobe has Wallaby http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/wallaby/ for this - I'm not sure how active the development is lately though. In any case it's impossible to replicate all features of Flash in HTML5.
    4. html5 coding - is it similar to actionscript 3 ie: do we have to start all over again - back to school?
    Again HTML5 itself is just a simple set of HTML tags. JavaScript is very similar to ActionScript, as AS is based on JavaScript (ECMAScript). For example HTML5 Canvas drawing API is very similar to AS3 drawing API. Therefore if you know AS, at least you know the basics of JS syntax.
    5. Games coded with actionscript 3. Can these games be exported to html5 or must they be rewritten?
    If you want it to run on browsers, yes. If you want to convert into apps then AIR does that.

  • KDE4 + wallpaper slideshow: few questions about performance / tuning.

    Hello,
    I am using KDE 4.4 from pacman and set my desktop activity to slideshow. I would like to customize few things and thus - I have few questions:
    1) Is it possible to change / disable transition effect when changing wallpapers? All my desktop is choppy and not responsive while the wallpaper changes and I am wondering if there is a way to repair this? (all images used as walls are at max 3MB big, usually something about 1MB. I have 7200 RPM disk, 2GB of ram and rather fast graphics card with newest Nvidia drivers, so I don't know what is the cause of slowdown...)
    2) How can I programatically progress wallpaper to next image (not with the right click / Next Wallpaper image)?
    3) Is there a way to disable the wallpaper change while there is a fullscreen application running? I am asking this, because when I watch HD movies and the wall changes, movie playback is really choppy... (I think that answer to the first question will also help me in this case).
    I would be glad for any sugestions / interest in helping me;)
    Best regards,
    Mike.

    Hello
    1/ There's no way I know to remove the transition. Using the "raster" graphics engine helps a lot on performance : kill plasma-desktop and launch  `plasma-desktop -graphicssystem raster`
    2/ There's a plasma applet for this :
    http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Ne … tent=94251
    http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?O … twallpaper
    Maybe you can adapt it to your needs / find out how it works.

  • Moving to systemd - few questions,

    Hi all,
    After the latest update I decided to jump to systemd completely, and have few questions.
    - I used a static IP address set-up within rc.cong previously and wish to carry on, but the wiki regarding the network and systemd isn't very clear - could anyone point me to the right information?
    - I have removed all my daemon from rc.conf at the exception of "xinetd"  simply because I cannot find the name of the service to be enable.
    - I am running squid on the computer and after checking the booting time it seems to take forever - is there a way to load service in the background like "@" previously or checking which order those service are starting (I have the feeling squid is trying to load before the network has started)
    - Is there a way to use systemd to start application at boot time, like pyLoad (download manager)?
    Looking forward for your replies,
    Regards,

    I won't be able to comment on everything, but here are my 2¢:
    sweetthdevil wrote:I used a static IP address set-up within rc.cong previously and wish to carry on, but the wiki regarding the network and systemd isn't very clear - could anyone point me to the right information?
    If I recall correctly, networking in rc.conf is deprecated. You should switch to netcfg.
    I have removed all my daemon from rc.conf at the exception of "xinetd"  simply because I cannot find the name of the service to be enable.
    What daemons did you have running before? Also, a "pacman -Ql <package> | grep service$" should list all service files belonging to a package. A common gotcha: There's not explicit dbus service file, dbus is at the heart of systemd and gets started automatically.
    I am running squid on the computer and after checking the booting time it seems to take forever - is there a way to load service in the background like "@" previously or checking which order those service are starting (I have the feeling squid is trying to load before the network has started)
    Systemd is, by default, "aggressively parallelized". The service file shipped with squid starts as soon as the network is available (due to the line "After=network.target"). You might want to read up on service files and targets (man systemd.service/systemd.unit/systemd.target) if you want to customize that.
    Is there a way to use systemd to start application at boot time, like pyLoad (download manager)?
    If you want to run pyLoad as its own user, just enable the service file shipped with it:
    # systemctl enable pyload.service
    If you want it to run at the start of your own user session, I'm afraid you'll have to wait a while—systemd for the user session is not yet ready for prime time.

  • A few questions before I buy a new iMac/Mac mini and sign up for Creative Cloud.

    Hello Everyone,
    I am looking to purchase a new Apple computer and sign up for Creative Cloud within the next week and I have a few questions that should be answered before I proceed.
    My wife and I own a business and we will be using the CS6 apps to create brochures, Constant Contact mailings, product package inserts, edit product photography for print and web use, and short HD how-to videos. We are not graphics professionals or power users and wont be doing anything too complicated.
    Any help and answers will be greatly appreciated.
    I will start with the hardware questions first:
    I am trying to decide between the iMac and the Mac mini.
    The iMac is a 2.7Ghz Quad-core Intel core i5 and comes with 4GB of memory that is expandable to 16GB, which I will do for sure. It comes with a Radeon HD 6770M graphics card with 512MB of GDDR5 memory(not upgradable), and a 1TB HDD that runs at 7200RPM. This unit meets the specs required.
    The 2.5Ghz Mac Mini comes with 4GB of memory that is expandable to 8GB, I will also do this. It has a Radeon HD 6630M graphics card with 256MB of GDDR5 memory(not upgradable), and a 500GB HDD that runs at 5400RPM. This unit meets all the spec(I think) except for the speed of the HDD.
    Question: Will the mini run the software without too much of an issue considering the speed of the HDD?
    Question: Will the iMac run the software significantly better to justify the price difference?
    I already have 1 mini(purchased 4 months ago, with the same specs listed above) and will be purchasing a second computer for my wifes desk. If the mini will run CS6 fine, that is great and we can save a few bucks. If my mini will not run CS6 well, I will get the iMac for her desk as she will be doing the bulk of the work in that regard anyway.
    Now a couple of software questions.
    After reading hundreds of reviews and forum posts over the last few days I have seen many people having this or that issue. It seems to me that most of the issues are because of upgrades from Lion to Mountian Lion after installing CS6 first or trying to open CS3,4,5 files in CS6.
    If you want to know what issues have me concerned take a look at just this one forum:
    http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2012/07/adobe-cs-apps-mountain-lion-no-known-issues.html
    Similar issues are discussed in the Apple forums as well as many other places around the web.
    I am not a computer professional but I know enough to maintain my systems and keep them running smoothly.
    We do not have any Adobe software installed on my mini and will not be opening any files from previous versions of Adobe product in the new CS6 software. These will be a clean installs on pristine systems running fully updated Mountian Lion OS's on both machines and creating new files from scratch.
    Question: Should I be expecting any issues like the ones I have read in the forums and blogs or are these just the normal things that happen when upgrading to new software with multiple hardware configurations?
    My feeling is that we will not be having too much of a problem due to the clean installs and no files from previous versions.
    Next up, the Creative Cloud(CC) FAQ states that you can install on 2 machines but can't open stuff at the same time.
    Question: Does this mean we can't be using any CS6 apps at the same time or just not using the same app at the same time?
    Example: PS and PS on both machines at same time = No, PS on one and Dreamweaver on the other at the same time=Yes?
    The CC FAQ page says Adobe will add Lightroom 4 later in 2012 while the main CC page lists it as available now.
    Question: Which is true?
    My mini is registered to me, with my name, iTunes account, Apple ID etc.
    Question: Do I need to do the initial set-up of the new machine with all my information to ensure the CS6 suite works on both machines? Do the computers need to be registered(as far as Apple configuration is concerned) to same person for them to work on one CC account or can I install CS6 on any 2 machines regardless of how they were initially set-up?
    This may seem like a silly question but I want to avoid any problems before they happen.
    Well, those are all of my questions at the moment. To anyone who made it this far in my looooong post, Thank You so much for your time. I appreciate your expertise and knowledge and hope that you can help me make this decision.
    Cheers,
    Alex Bogdan

    Alex,
    I'll try and answer your questions as best I can.
    Qn 1 Which Mac.
    Ans:- As I understand it both units will run Adobe CS6.
              Which one really depends on what you wand from CS6. If you are looking for high end demand and performance, then I would go for the IMac
              Your Specs for the Imac are right. However if you buy your IMac straight from Apple there are even higher specs.
              You can get:-
                                  3.4 GHz i7 processor rather than the i5
                                   2GB video card as opposed to a 1Gb video card.
                                   Of course such a model will cost you more.
              In the end it is needs compared with money to spend. That is only a decision you cam make.
    Q2:- Will the higher cost for the Imac justify copst.
    Ans:- Again it depends on what demands you intend to make on the hardware and software.
              But I note you have a business and if that businees expects to high demand and high speedy performance then I suspect the Imac would be more able to provide your needs.
              Again only you will know the answer to that.
    Q3:- Questions about CS6 reliability
    Ans:- I have been with Adobe for way over 10 years.
             Speaking, only for myself, it is the most reliable software on the market.
              It is true that if you look down this form, like any other and I am thinking about the Apple discussions forum, you will find numerous instances of problems.
              Again this is only my opinion, but although all these problems are real for the individuals:-
              First it is not clear why they have the problem e.g. what have they done or not done.
              Second, they are in the minority of the total users using the hardware / software.
              The only problem I am aware of with CS6 is Acrobat X. I understand it has been sorted Adobe, however it cost me so much work I have removed it from my system and reverted to Acrobat 9
              So what I am saying is that there are only two comapnies I rely 100% on: They are Adobe and Apple.
             So if you are happy with my opinion I would not worry about Adobe CS6
    Qn 4:- CS6 0n 2 machines.
    Ans:- Yes you will not be able to run the same program similtaneosly.
               I believe, if it is important that you do run the same program together, that you can acquire a further licience from Adobe to do that.
               You would need to contact Adobe about that.
    Qn 5:- Lightroom 4
    Ans:- Lightroom is now available as part of Creative Cloud.
    Qn 6:- Set up for individual machines
    Ans:- I do not believe you do. Once you have set up your Creative Cloud account you go to the apps site and download the apps for each machine.
              Each machine downloads the apps and your machine and the apps are registered by Adobe.
             Here is something that you may want to know:-
              Because I was so unhappy loosing all the Acrobat data with Acrobat X I ended up deleting Acrobat X
              However as far as Creative Cloud is concered Acrobat X is still on my machine.
              It is not a problem for me because I am happy with Acrobat 9, it fullfils my needs and has not crashed and lost me all my bookmarks.
              However here is the point:-
              Adobe, when there was a problem with Acrobat X requested that no-one deletes the application.
             Though I do not know for certain I believe registration of the apps you have with Creative Cloud are registered with Creative Cloud in their database. Therefore were you to delete an app, it will still be registered with Creative Cloud and you will not be able to download a further copy even though the app is no longer on your    machine.
              Therefore it maybe not a good idea to delete an app when you no longer have a use for it. If you want it back I suspect you will have to contact Adobe Support
    Personal Comment:-
              It is true many unfortunately have had all sorts of problems, including me with Acrobat X.
              That said, Creative Cloud in my view has been a major advance in how Adobe delivers software. I have no regrets with signing up to Creative Cloud and I expect to remain with it.
    Hope all of that goes some way to answering your questions.

  • Oracle 9i R2 Installation on RH Linux 7.3 -- Have a few questions.

    Hello,
    I am at the end of the Oracle 9i R2 installation and have a few questions.
    1) The "Agent Configuration Assistant" keeps failing. I get the following message.
    Parameters "orahome" = /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0
    Parameters "nodeinfo" = NODE_VALUE
    Agent Service Failed
    What does this mean and how can I complete Agent Configuration Assistant install?
    2) I completed the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant successfully and created passwords for sys and sysoper (not sure if these were the exact users). Note I did not modify any other users or unlock them.
    How do I log into the sqlplus prompt, what users should I use and how can I create new users and databases?
    Thanks for your help in advance.
    Regards,
    Chris Barone

    (1) You can probably just ignore the Agent Configuration (are you using the Agent to collect data?)
    (2) sqlplus '/ as sysdba' will log you into the SQL*Plus prompt.

  • New to IPhone and have a few Questions?

    To start I want to say that I am a long time (25+ years) veteran of technology but am new the the IPhone. My IPhone is not Jailbroken and would like to keep it that way if I can. Allthgouh I did jailbrake it with blackra1n for about 30mins then I did a factory reload and let it be as it started acting stupid once I started installing apps from unofficial sources.;) Im a x86 nerd and NOT a MAC guy. I haven't sat down at a MAC/Apple in about 15/20 years.
    I just got my first IPhone 3Gs/16GB. (Coming from a BlackBerry Curve 8310) the other day and although it is taking some time getting used to, I think I will like it more then I do once I get used to it.
    Anyhow I have a few questions to start off with. I did some googleing already but just want to make sure I understand a few things.
    All though I did the BlackRa1n jail break thing and installed a few apps then it locked up and failed to turn on or something so I did the whole reload from itunes and now its all good. Anyhow.....
    1.) It appears as if one can not run a program from the home sreen and have it run in the background while doing other things? Take the many SIP Clients I have played with in the last 48 hours. Once I open the SIP Client and connect if I hit the physical button below the screen the program closes, thus the sip client no longer works. Pretty much most if not all apps iv installed from the App Store act like this. Is this the case? Does the IPhone not mutitask at all or verywell?
    2.) Are there any SIP Clients that work over 3G? All the ones iv tried say they are for WIFI only. The SIP Clients work fine when on WIFI. It sounds like this is Apples way of controlling/monopolizing the voice/data/voip aspect of the platform/device. Im sure they would lose a lot of money if everyone did what I am trying to do.Just my opinion.
    3.) Maybe I play with it to much but **** the battery dies fast. Is there anyway to optimize the battery at all other then for me not to use it as much?
    4.) How can I remote lock it if I lose it or it gets stolen? I read somewhere this could be done.
    5.) Are there any other Shells/HomeScreens/Themes that can replace the standard 4x4x4 row icons?
    6.) The speaker phone (when on a call) seems kinda low even when turned all the way up. Is there any way to make it louder?
    7.) I am using the built in VPN client to connect to my works PPTP Windows 2003 VPN server but the client randomly disconnects through out the day. Is there any way to have some type of keep alive set or are there any other VPN Clients that I can use?
    Sorry for all this just thought I would ask for feedback.
    Many thanks for any help anyone can provide,
    SomeOneOnLine

    1.) It appears as if one can not run a program from the home sreen and have it run in the background while doing other things? Does the IPhone not mutitask at all or verywell?
    The iPhone SDK does not permit ANY 3rd party apps from running in the background or multitasking. It does provide for push notifications which can simulate certain background activity in terms of receiving external notifications while the app is actually closed. This works reasonably well with IM apps, news, sports, weather, travel updates and some peer-to-peer games.
    2.) Are there any SIP Clients that work over 3G? All the ones iv tried say they are for WIFI only.
    Just how would the SIP server connect to the cell carrier 3G network? Do you know of ANY that do??
    3.) Maybe I play with it to much but **** the battery dies fast. Is there anyway to optimize the battery at all other then for me not to use it as much?
    3G voice and data connections are culprits. Avoid email push and frequent fetching. See this Apple article for detailed suggestions.
    http://www.apple.com/batteries/iphone.html
    4.) How can I remote lock it if I lose it or it gets stolen? I read somewhere this could be done.
    MobileMe Find My iPhone will locate, set a passcode lock and optionally wipe all data from your iPhone. You have to be a MobileMe subscriber.
    5.) Are there any other Shells/HomeScreens/Themes that can replace the standard 4x4x4 row icons?
    No. Apple does not permit this.
    6.) The speaker phone (when on a call) seems kinda low even when turned all the way up. Is there any way to make it louder?
    You can troubleshoot your iPhone as described in the User Guide - restart, reset, reset settings, restore. Or, get hearing aids
    7.) I am using the built in VPN client to connect to my works PPTP Windows 2003 VPN server but the client randomly disconnects through out the day. Is there any way to have some type of keep alive set or are there any other VPN Clients that I can use?
    See this Apple support article:

    BTW, discussion of "unauthorized modifications" such as jailbreaking is prohibited under the forum Terms of Use you agreed to when joining. Best not to even mention it or risk getting your post deleted.

  • A few questions from someone new to Aperture (and DSLR photography)

    Hi - I have just got my first DSLR camera (A Nikon D3000) and am trying out Aperture 3. I had a few questions which aren't all just necessarily Aperture related:
    I have imported my library from iPhoto, however now all my albums are in alphabetical order, rather than date created. I only seem to have the option to arrange my albums by, "Kind", "Name" or "Manual". Any idea how I restore the date created order?
    This may be too large a subject for here (I should probably buy a book on the subject), however JPEG, NEF and TIFF - I am shooting in raw mode which is generating NEF files. I had tried RAW+JPEG, but the basic JPEG this creates is really quite poor. The NEF files are generally around 7-12Mb. If I open them for editing in Photoshop, a TIFF file is generated in Aperture which looks to be over 8x the size of the original raw file, sometime over 100Mb. I then seem to be able to save it back as a JPEG at pretty much maximum quality which results in a file slightly smaller than the original raw file. Is it necessary to keep the large TIFF files once I've created a jpeg? Am I best off just keeping the finished jpeg and the original raw file in case I want to make changes?
    When publishing to flickr, It would be good to be able to just publish the latest versions of all photos in an album. ie not the same photo in tiff, nef and jpg format. Is there an easy way to do this, or is it a case of manually picking each one?
    Also - When uploading NEF files to flickr it would appear to convert them to jpg, which is kind of good I suppose, but does anyone know what level of quality the jpegs created are? Am I best off converting them to jpeg myself first and then uploading? If I did this then my albums would be full of duplicates in different formats, which leads back to my previous question about uploading just one version of each. That may be a question for the flickr forum...

    You have jumped into the deep end with both feet.
    With Aperture running select the single the Browser and you will find the sort controls under the Mobileme to New Smart Album icons depending on how stretched out you have the Inspector panel. There is the ability to sort by just about every parameter there either ascending or descending.
    Can Aperture not convert your NEF files? You dont have to have Tiff files at all. See your Preferences regarding External Editor. How much storage space and your archiving requirements will influence your decision about retaining Tiff files.
    I know nothing about Flickr but assume you will have to choose your own images. I doubt a Smart Album can select exactly what you need.
    When uploading files online galleries generally optimise the images. You are wasting your time uploading massive Tiffs IMHO. Most web services work with jpegs I understand. Consult the Flickr help and support for their requirements and advice.
    Enjoy your new hobby.
    AW
    Whether you have the room to save Tiff files as well as Raw files will probably decide whether you keep them or not.

  • Few questions on Report programming

    Hi guys,
    I have few questions on report programming.
    1. What is the purpose of the statement REPORT zxxx. Even if i gave a name other than my report name i don't find any difference in syntax check/Functionality.
    2. What is the purpose of list headings in report program? This option will come along with the text elements and selection texts.
    3. What is the purpose of logical data base. Even if it is efficient why don't we use it frequently in our reports? Is there any limitations?
    All usefull answers will be rewarded as usuall:-)
    Thanks,
    Vinod.

    1. As u told that you dint get any syntax errors even after changing the Report Name,there are chances of getting Runtime errors.
    2. The usage of List Headings is when you create a list in a program, you can also create your own list and column headings.
    Refer this link for further info.
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/e3/960a05eb0711d194d100a0c94260a5/content.htm
    3. The Limitation of LDB  is the usage of GET statements which act similar to SELECT - ENDSELECT And also if you dont choose the proper LDB,a  single LDB may contain data retrieval from so many tables ,that it would make the entire process very slow and it is very hard to find LDBs for other modules than HR.
    Only in HR module the data is organized in such a way thatusing LDBs would be much simpler.
    Reward points if useful.

  • Few questions - game loop, data types, speed

    Hello, I have a few questions after studying some topics in this forum regarding game creation:
    1) What's the fastest way to wait in the game loop? I've seen two approaches:
    thread.sleep(10)andsynchronized(this) { wait(10); }2) What data types shall I use? In C++ I use to prefer int over short in all cases, because 32bit hardware works faster with integers. Is this same on cell phones?
    3) Speed of applications is slow. I just wonder wheter it's my fault. I was testing application, which only cleared the buffer and outputted FPS and I got around 20 frames. It was Nokia 6300 with 240x320 display. After testing on other phones I've found out that the bigger the resolution, the slower the game is going. Is this normal?
    Thanks for replies...

    1) You're not going to notice any really speed difference between the two code snippets. Read up on 'Threads', and you'll see why one may be used in place of the other depending on the situation. In general there may be a slight performance loss, however unnoticable, when using the synchronized version, but when you are multithreading it is likely necessary.
    sleep(int) is impossible to interrupt, so it's generally a no-no in most situations. However we are talking about devices where every bit of performance helps, so as long as it works for ya, it's not a big deal.
    2) The performance difference is fairly negligable, if any. The biggest thing to consider is memory requirements, and shorts take 1/2 the data.
    Also, many phones don't support floating point data types, so you'll likely need to use ints/longs to calculate your values if you want to have any accuracy beyond whole numbers. Doing something like shifting bits or using 1000x values in your calculations can get around most of the problems when you can't use floats.
    3) The biggest performance killers are IO, memory allocation, screen drawing; pretty much in that order. So I imagine that you are re-creating a new String object every time you output your FPS value on screen right? Doing that every frame would destroy any hopes of getting high-performance.
    Just be careful, and never allocate objects when you can avoid it. anything where you concat String objects using + will cause your performance to die a horrible painful slow death. Remove anything that says 'new' from your main loop, and all String operations, and it'll likely speed things up a lot for ya.
    Does your main loop have something like this?
    g.drawString("FPS: " + currentFps, 0,0,Graphics.TOP | Graphics.LEFT);
    This is very bad because of the String operation. It'll create a new String every frame.

  • A few questions on setting partitioning the hardrive.

    Hello,
    I am reinstalling Arch because I want to make the jump from i686 to Arch64. I really want this to be the last time I reinstall an OS on this laptop, so I have a few questions on the most efficient way to set up the partitions.
    1) Is it safer to have a seperate boot partition? I really don't mind setting aside 100MB or so for boot, but I keep hearing you really don't have to do that with Arch anymore.
    2) How does optimization work? Are partitions that are created higher on the list faster to access? What I'm looking for is a really fast computer while in use. I don't care about boot time very much, and my swap drive is barely used. Would this be a good set up for what I'm looking for?
    SDA1 Root
    SDA2 VAR
    SDA3 Home
    SDA4 Swap
    SDA5 Boot
    3) Is ext4 a good idea? I really like the speed and all that, but it's still in development, right? When it's finished, would I be able to update the filesystems or once I make them are they always stuck in their current state? I was thinking ext2 for boot then ext4 for everything else.

    I'm not too sure on that one as i have never tried it but it might be possible to boot from your live cd, backup your /var partition reformat it then copy the data back on to it but don't quote me on that.
    I don't think you will notice any difference regarding which order you mount your partition's, I have been through a bunch of different partition setup's and have not noticed any speed difference between them only between different filesystem's
    I have the same partition setup as your first post minus the boot partition
    /dev/sda1 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
    /dev/sda2 /var reiserfs defaults,noatime 0 1
    /dev/sda3 /home ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
    /dev/sda4 swap swap defaults 0 0
