Best practices for Flash CS5 and Flash Builder 4 integration?

With Flash CS5's new XFL file structure/format, what's the best way to structure project files for Flash CS5 integration with Flash Builder 4? Flash CS5 autocreates a folder named after the xfl file as the outer container, and then all the assets/xfl within it. Should this folder be used as the project folder for Flash Builder 4, or better to nest the xfl container folder in a "real" project folder? I would presume the latter, since you might have multiple XFL files in one project. I was hoping to see some automatic linkages between document class of the Flash CS5 XFL file and any default ActionScript class created by Flash Builder, but so far I seem to need to specify a document class directly in Flash CS5's environment and making sure that the path to a default class created by Flash Builder is correct.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

Most likely, you know that, but just in case, you can integrate new Flash project into existing Flex 4 project  from within the Flash Builder by choosing either Flash Component or Flash Container from the FB Design view. In such workflow Flash Builder opens the Flash CS 4 (I assume that should be the same for CS5) and takes care of the integrating the newly created Flash project into original Flex 4 project.

  • Best Practices for Using Photoshop (and Computing in General)

    I've been seeing some threads that lead me to realize that not everyone knows the best practices for doing Photoshop on a computer, and in doing conscientious computing in general.  I thought it might be a good idea for those of us with some exprience to contribute and discuss best practices for making the Photoshop and computing experience more reliable and enjoyable.
    It'd be great if everyone would contribute their ideas, and especially their personal experience.
    Here are some of my thoughts on data integrity (this shouldn't be the only subject of this thread):
    Consider paying more for good hardware. Computers have almost become commodities, and price shopping abounds, but there are some areas where spending a few dollars more can be beneficial.  For example, the difference in price between a top-of-the-line high performance enterprise class hard drive and the cheapest model around with, say, a 1 TB capacity is less than a hundred bucks!  Disk drives do fail!  They're not all created equal.  What would it cost you in aggravation and time to lose your data?  Imagine it happening at the worst possible time, because that's exactly when failures occur.
    Use an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS).  Unexpected power outages are TERRIBLE for both computer software and hardware.  Lost files and burned out hardware are a possibility.  A UPS that will power the computer and monitor can be found at the local high tech store and doesn't cost much.  The modern ones will even communicate with the computer via USB to perform an orderly shutdown if the power failure goes on too long for the batteries to keep going.  Again, how much is it worth to you to have a computer outage and loss of data?
    Work locally, copy files elsewhere.  Photoshop likes to be run on files on the local hard drive(s).  If you are working in an environment where you have networking, rather than opening a file right off the network, then saving it back there, consider copying the file to your local hard drive then working on it there.  This way an unexpected network outage or error won't cause you to lose work.
    Never save over your original files.  You may have a library of original images you have captured with your camera or created.  Sometimes these are in formats that can be re-saved.  If you're going to work on one of those files (e.g., to prepare it for some use, such as printing), and it's a file type that can be overwritten (e.g., JPEG), as soon as you open the file save the document in another location, e.g., in Photoshop .psd format.
    Save your master files in several places.  While you are working in Photoshop, especially if you've done a lot of work on one document, remember to save your work regularly, and you may want to save it in several different places (or copy the file after you have saved it to a backup folder, or save it in a version management system).  Things can go wrong and it's nice to be able to go back to a prior saved version without losing too much work.
    Make Backups.  Back up your computer files, including your Photoshop work, ideally to external media.  Windows now ships with a quite good backup system, and external USB drives with surprisingly high capacity (e.g., Western Digital MyBook) are very inexpensive.  The external drives aren't that fast, but a backup you've set up to run late at night can finish by morning, and if/when you have a failure or loss of data.  And if you're really concerned with backup integrity, you can unplug an external drive and take it to another location.
    This stuff is kind of "motherhood and apple pie" but it's worth getting the word out I think.
    Your ideas?

    Our power outages here are usually only a few seconds; this should give my server about 20 or 25 minutes run-time.
    I'm setting up the PowerChute software now to shut down the computer when 5 minutes of power is left.  The load with the monitor sleeping is 171 watts.
    This has surge protection and other nice features as well.

  • Best practice for OSB, OER and OSR

    Hi,
    I would like to know what are the best practices for using OSB, OER and OSR together in a run-time environment for a simple WSDL service.
    From how I see it:
    1) Create service-definition in OER
    2) Create proxy and business service in OSB
    3) Use harvester to harvest the proxy and business services in OER
    4) Use Exchange Utility to publish the proxy service to OSR
    Then the client and discover the proxy service and use OSB for invoking the operations from service.
    Kindly correct me where I am wrong.
    Some questions:
    1) Do we ever publish business service to OSR? Or is it only meant for proxy services?
    2) Is synching of OSB and OSR only meant when we are not using OER?
    Looking forward...

    Hi Anuj,
    Thanks for the links, they have been helpful.
    I understand now that OSR is only meant to contain only Proxy services. The synch facility is between OSR and OSB so that in case when you are not using OER, you can publish Proxy services to OSR from OSB. What I didn't understand was why there was a option to publish a Proxy service back to OSB and why it ended up as a Business service. From the link you provided, it mentioned that this case is for multi-domain OSBs, where one OSB wants to use the other OSB's service. It is clear now.
    Some more questions:
    1) In the design-time, in OER no Endpoints are generated for Proxy services. Then how do we publish our design-time services to OSR for testing purposes? What is the correct way of doing this?
    Thanks,
    Umar

  • Best practice for Error logging and alert emails

    I have SQL Server 2012 SSIS. I have Excel files that are imported with Exel Source and OLE DB Destination. Scheduled Jobs runs every night SSIS packages.
    I'm looking for advice that what is best practice for production environment.Requirements are followings:
    1) If error occurs with tasks, email is sent to admin
    2) If error occurs with tasks, we have log in flat file or DB
    Kenny_I

    Are you asking about difference b/w using standard logging and event handlers? I prefer latter as using standard logging will not always data in the way in which we desire. So we've developed a framework to add necessary functionalities inside event handlers
    and log required data in the required format to a set of tables that we maintain internally.

  • Best Practice for Multiple iTunes and One Account?

    My wife and I share our account for our iPhone Applications and Songs in iTunes.
    Can someone point me to a topic that covers a best practice for multiple iTunes syncing?
    I travel a lot and keep my iPhone synced to my Macbook Pro while she uses the workstation at home to sync to. We keep the addresses and contacts and calendars synced through MobileMe, however, I'm trying to find the best way of pushing applications and songs I've bought over to the other PC so they're still around while I'm traveling for her to sync with.
    Thoughts?

    Hi Steve,
    Might be trying for solution for a long time, If i understood your question clear let me clarify you few points.
    You are trying to access the bex query which is designed with the exit's in the background based on the logic and trying to call the entire dimensions and key-figures in a single connection. Then you are trying to map those data in the charts.
    Steve, try to make more connections based upon the logic and split them. use the same query but split them by sales per customer group, sales per day, sales per week by making three different connections and try. You can merge the prompts from all connections.
    Hope this Helps!!!
    Sorry if i misunderstood your question.

  • Best Practice for Portal Patches and effort estimation

    Hi ,
    One of our client is applying the following patches
    1. ECC 6.0 SP15(currently SP14)
    2. ESS MSS SP15(currently SP14 with some level of functional customization )
    3. EP 7 SP18(currently SP14)
    We would like to kwow the best practice for applying portal patches and the effort estimation for redoing the portal devt on the new patch.
    o   What is the overall level of effort with applying Portal patches?
    o   How are all the changes to SAP objects handle?  Do they have to be
         manually re-entered?
    o  What is the impact of having a single NWDI instance across the
        Portal Landscape during the Patch process?
    Regards,
    Revathi Raju.

    Hi Revathi,
    o What is the overall level of effort with applying Portal patches?
    overall effort to apply the patch is apprx 1/2-1 days for NW7 system. This is exclude the patch files download because it's based on your download speed.
    o How are all the changes to SAP objects handle? Do they have to be
    manually re-entered?
    Depending on your customization. Normally it wont effect if you created the customzation application apart from SAP standard application
    o What is the impact of having a single NWDI instance across the
    Portal Landscape during the Patch process?
    Any change that related to NWDI, you might be need to re-deployed from NWDI itself.
    Thanks

  • Best practices for handling elements and symbols (including preloading)

    I am trying to learn Edge Animate and I have not seen enough animations to know how this is typically handled and I searched the forum and have not found an answer either.
    If you have many different elements and symbols for a project, what is the best practice for having them appear, disappear, etc. on the timeline? I ask this question not only from a performance based perspective, but also keeping in mind the idea of preloading. This is a 2 part question:
    Part 1: Using elements and symbols later in the timeline:
    Since artwork is always imported directly to the stage in an "always on" status, should we place a visibility OFF on every item until we need it?
    or should they be opacity 0 until I need them?
    or should they be set to visibility hidden until I need them?
    Which of these is the best option if you don't want the element / symbol visible until later in the timeline? Does it matter?
    Part 2: Impact on page loading
    Does the above question have any impact upon page loading speed
    or is this something handled in preloading?
    or do you need to make a special preloader?
    Thanks for the help.

    Hi, escargo-
    Good questions!
    Part 1: Using elements and symbols later in the timeline:
    Since artwork is always imported directly to the stage in an "always on" status, should we place a visibility OFF on every item until we need it?
    or should they be opacity 0 until I need them?
    or should they be set to visibility hidden until I need them?
    Which of these is the best option if you don't want the element / symbol visible until later in the timeline? Does it matter?
    I would recommend that you set your visibility to "off" instead of simply changing the opacity.  The reason I suggest this is that when your visibility is set to off, your object's hit points also disappear.  If you have any type of interactivity, having the object still visible but with 0 opacity will interfere with anything you have underneath it in the display order.
    Part 2: Impact on page loading
    Does the above question have any impact upon page loading speed
    or is this something handled in preloading?
    or do you need to make a special preloader?
    Thanks for the help.
    No, none of this has any impact on page load.  As you already noticed, all of the assets of your project will load before it displays.  If you want only part of your composition to load, you may want to do what we call a multi-composition project.  There's a sample of that in the Edge Animate API in the Advanced section, and plenty of posts in the forums (and one in the team's blog) explaining how to do that.

  • Best Practices for BI, ADF and Oracle Forms installations on Weblogic

    Hi, I'm researching options on upgrading to Oracle 11g Middleware. My company currently has Oracle Forms 10g running on Oracle Application Server.
    We are interested in using Oracle Forms 11g, ADF and Jdeveloper, and Business Intelligence with Oracle's Weblogic 10.3.5.
    Is there any whitepapers or documentation on best practices for installing alll of these components together?
    For instance, can ADF ( with JSF 2.x ) be installed in the same domain as Oracle Forms 11g but use different managed servers?
    Will Business Intelligence need to be in a seperate Oracle Home with it's own weblogic installation? I spend a lot of time trying to get the JSF upgraded to 2.x in the Business Intelligence installation and could not get it to work.
    I know it's a pretty broad question but thank you for any direction on this.

    Thanx for the reply! I read through the documents and they are very good at explaining how to install the different components individually. I still can't find much on installing them together. I hope it's not just going to be a trial and error thing.
    So far I've installed done the following successfully:
    Installed 10.3.5 weblogic
    Forms and Reports 11g on top of 10.3.5
    I've created an additional managed server for our ADF applications.
    My next step is upgrading the JSF to 2.x. I would have to stage patches 12917525 and 12979653. I'm afraid it will break the forms and reports though. Any ideas?

  • Unity -- Best practice for Attendant Console and Operator

    I am fairly new to Voice Over IP. I am in a new position for managing our phones, e.g., Moves, Adds, Changes and Call Handler management. We use version 8.6.2.
    Our system is comprised of 19 different buildings, with 1 to 2 Attendant Consoles per building. When our phone network was set up, people who have Attendant Consoles did not want callers to have the option to leave a message if someone is away from their Attendant Console momentarily. Is this best practice? What are most companies doing with their setups?
    In addition, in what capacity is the Operator account of value or can it be deleted? We have discovered that if people choose the System Directory Handler, they can "find" their way to the Operator voicemail by pressing "0" and leave a message. However, this voicemail box has not been monitored, thus their are over 300 messages in it.
    I know I will have other questions, but if someone has a a good way of setting this up, I would be very thankful.
    Laurel

    I'll give it a go!
    "In addition, in what capacity is the Operator account of value or can it be deleted? We have discovered that if people choose the System Directory Handler, they can "find" their way to the Operator voicemail by pressing "0" and leave a message. However, this voicemail box has not been monitored, thus their are over 300 messages in it.'
    You can't actually delete the Operator (It's a default User Account). Just go into the System Directoy Handler, click edit > caller input > if you're feeling bloody minded, choose "hang up" on the "If Caller Presses 0", otherwise either create a new call handler or point it to an existing one.
    "Our system is comprised of 19 different buildings, with 1 to 2 Attendant Consoles per building.

Is this best practice? What are most companies doing with their setups?"
    I have to deal with both situations. Some locations refuse a voice mail, some want it. It's normally at the wish of the department head. Just make sure that call does not ring forever or otherwise make the caller upset.

  • Best practices for JavaFX architecture and patterns?

    Hi,
    I want to write reusable, easy to maintain JavaFX code for a larger UI project and wonder what are the best practices doing so.
    1) Are there preferred UI patterns? MVC, MVP, Presentation Model, ...?
    2) Does it make sense to use FXML to separate View from Logic? Or should I use 2-3 Java classes instead (one for View, one for Logic, one for Domain Model, depending on the pattern)
    3) How to organize all the views? Should I use Dependency Injection? Or Singletons for each view? Spring or Guice framework, if at all?
    Currently I use singletons for most views, so that I can use them from anywhere in my application. If a window is closed and opened again, I use the same instance for that, which still resists in memory.
    For patterns, I try to lean on Presentation Model, since this is what I know from Flex development: Having a View layer, which contains all the UI stuff and an abstract view layer, which holds properties, that describe the View, e.g. submitButtonDisabledProperty. The View knows the abstract layer (Presentation Model), but not vice versa and the UI elements are bound to its properties.
    I am unsure if this is appropriate for JavaFX, too (for Flex or Silverlight it is).
    What are your recommendations / experiences for large UI projects?

    You are correct that in 'pure' MVP the View should know as little about it's presenter implementation as possible. The view should just notify one or more 'listeners' that something has happened.
    You can use event listeners for this, but I would highly recommend not exposing your Control-specific GUI events and instead create your own. So for example, don't expose ActionEvent or MouseEvent as these expose too much detail about your View's implementation, instead create 'semantic' events, so you might have something like 'sayHelloRequested' or 'printOptionSelected' (whatever naming system you want). This hides how the option is implemented, so you might have a 'print' button, a 'print' menu option, a CTRL+P print shortcut, or a double tap anywhere on your screen to print. The listener knows only that the view thinks 'print was requested by the user' - decoupling achieved.
    Once you start doing this however you end up with an explosion of event listener interfaces. So say a view has 10 callbacks it wants to notify about, then you end up with 10 interfaces, and if you're being really pure you also end up with 10 'Event' beans (or DTOs) to encapsulate the details of that event. It starts to get ungainly even for a semi-purist like me. So the logical progression from there is usually just to define all 10 callbacks in one interface and call it something like MyViewListener.
    There are two common ways to implement listeners, the traditional way is to allow an arbitrary number of listeners to be added. Whereas another option is to allow only a single listener to be added. In JFX you will notice that Button for example has a setOnAction() method not a addOnAction() method - it allows a single event handler only and let's face it this is generally fine in 95% of cases. For the remaining 5% you can just write your own aggregate event handler that dispatches the event to multiple listeners.
    So if we go down the road of single event listeners, using an interface for all of the callbacks and not bothering with full 'Event' objects, you end up with something like this:
    public interface MyViewListener {
        void printRequested();
        void doSomething(int someParam);   
        void doSomethingElse(String someOtherParam);   
    }And if you look closely at the 'Purist' option in my MVP pattern where I define interfaces for everything, then you will see that this is pretty much the exact interface I've created for the 'Presenter'. You could just as easily rename this interface to MyViewListener in this pattern and have the same outcome.
    So to wrap all that up, yes, the Presenter should be decoupled and I highly favour the 'purist' option in my blog and would definitely use it if FXML didn't dictate a impure design pattern (there are some ongoing discussions about this on the OpenJFX discussion group). And, yes, my 'purist' option could be even more pure if you went for the full-blown event callback model and if you go down that road you will have an extremely clean architecture but also an extremely large code-base - totally your call whether it's worth it.
    It's also worth remembering in all this, that there are a lot of people from a lot of different backgrounds using JFX and some people hate (passionately) even my semi-pure option - especially those coming from other, less heavy-weight languages. They just don't get why you wouldn't build it all into one class and reduce the overheads. So what you have in my blog is my thoughts on it, other people will most definitely differ. I'm a big fan of developer's choice, and that's why I did the smorgasboard approach even though I personally would never use some of those implementations.
    Also this video on GWT is an awesome reference on GUI design patterns: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDuhR18-EdM
    JFX Flow draws a lot from GWT as I think it is a very clean architecture (just such a shame that they put all that effort into hiding the horrid, sordid mess that is the web+html+css, instead of making something proper, like JFX).
    Hope that helps,
