The plan for the next version shows improvements for Class Mapping, VO and Caching. And I promise to create a better documentation for it…


sfAmfPlugin 1.4.2

I released a new version of the Symfony-Plugin sfAmfPlugin som hours ago. With the new version the communication between Flex and Symfony is easier than ever.The new version brings big improvements regarding the Doctrine Adapters. Relations between classes are handled better now. The error_reporting is working now as it should and there is a default implementation of a gateway module included.I hope you like it and find it useful. And as always I would like to hear from you if there are bugs or feature requests.Get it while it’s hot :-) Timo


sfAmfPlugin 1.3.0 released

Just want to inform you that my sfAmfPlugin for Symfony-Flex-Communication was released in version 1.3.0.

Most noticeable changes:

  • Fixing a bug with PHP Strict mode (thanks to Daniel Holmes for spotting this one)
  • Adding the possibility to store the services in all lib-folders of a project (app, module, project, plugins)
  • Fixing different bugs with AMF conversion of Doctrine objects (thanks to Patrick Schirch for bugging me about them)

I’m still working to get the Doctrine support better, there will be much more about this in the next version of the plugin. Class mapping is also a thing I want to improve a lot. So stay tuned and watch out for future versions :-)

Just got Flex Builder 3

So I was curious about Flex, an Adobe Product to make Rich Internet Interfaces on a website or on the desktop using Adobe AIR. Installed Flex Builder 3 and am exploring it.

Reminds me a lot of Visual Basic when I first used an IDE, but on the web.  Alot of reusable components will make this useful.

EDIT1: So I made my first Flex App.  This is a really simple ZipCode app using Flex Builder 3 that’ll take a ZipCode and spit out the information from a web service.

EDIT2: Ok so I did a search on the web and found someone else doing a Flickr Tileset using Flex Builder 2.  I take his source and update it to Flex Builder 3 (not as easy as Adobe said it would be), and this is the result: a very simple Flickr Tileset using Flex Builder 3.
