Ext JS Blog - » Building a desktop application with Ext, AIR, Ap June 30, 2007 | Jack Slocum Ext JS is an excellent framework for building web applications that have desktop like functionality in a web browser. But what if you could take your JavaScript powered application and run on the desktop like any other native application? The launch of Adobe AIR (formerly Apollo) has made this not only a reality, but extremely easy. Get Aptana With the new Aptana AIR plugin creating an AIR app was easy, even for a newbie like me. 2. 3. Coding the application Coding the UI of the AIR application was indentical to coding any other Ext application. and Google Gears support The other challenge faced was when I wanted to run the same application in a browser. Building the application Can Aptana make this any easier? Simple Tasks I started out with low expectations - just making a simple application in AIR using Ext. While Adobe Air is still being refined, I have the feeling that this is the start of something great.

Creative Cloud outage: Adobe ID login failures mean Daily Mail’s digital edition couldn’t be published After being hit by an extended outage yesterday, Adobe’s login system is working again and customers are able to use their Adobe IDs to access the Creative Cloud and other services. For creative customers, being locked out proved frustrating – though workarounds were quick to appear for many issues – but for publishers using Adobe DPS (Digital Publishing System), it was even worse. We’ve heard from companies who were unable to publish their titles while the outage was happening, where the biggest impact was on daily titles such as the Daily Mail’s Mail Plus interactive newspaper, which couldn't publish yesterday – so the title has almost certainly lost much of a day’s advertising revenue. And it appears from the Mail Plus’s Twitter feed that there are continuing problems today.

Christophe Coenraets » Flex-based SQLAdmin for Google Gears I spent the last few days building a Flex/Google Gears integration demo that Kevin Lynch demonstrated during the Gears announcement today at the Google developer day in San Jose. The demo is a Flex-based Sales Force Automation application that uses Gears to save data to a local SQLite database while offline, and automatically synchronizes back with the server when you reconnect to the network. There is a browser-based version of the application using Gears for the local database access, and an Apollo version using Apollo’s built-in SQLite support. I will post the code and more information about the application after cleaning it up a little bit. In the meantime, here is a SQLAdmin app that I built to help me manipulate my Gears database as I was building the demo. You can run the application here. To use the app with your own databases, download the application here, and run it from the same domain as the database you wish to inspect. The source code is available here
