Grails and BlazeDS with a Flex UI

All of my spare time has been taken up with the Google App Engine project I mentioned before. As with all tech these days, the platform is a moving target. With the initial release of GAE only supporting Python I dived straight in to learning Python and the Django framework. Then they release Java as […]

Quick AirWaves TV Guide update

The version I uploaded yesterday had a bug in the alerts that meant they could not be closed. I have rectified this issue and uploaded a new version. We are now at version 0.3. Whilst digging around the code I also moved the update functionality into the code that downloads new TV Data (so it […]

AirWaves TV Guide

It took longer than I hoped (if you need to replace your central heating pump and mid-position valve I am now the man 😉 ), but I will be able to release the new version this weekend. It will now be at V0.2 and the auto-updater should handle the upgrade once I have uploaded the […]

AirWaves TV new functionality

I’m currently in the process of writing a new view on the TV data that resembles the DigiGuide view. Each channel is a long line of boxes. Each box represents a programme, the size of the box shows how long the show is etc. The first version was incredibly slow. I was using a repeater […]

Another release of AirWaves

That was quicker than I intended. I’m not sure if anything changed on their side but the data coming from the radiotimes (RT) site started causing problems for the AirWaves parser. I am performing a similar job to XMLTV and creating XML data from the RT data. Today ampersands started causing a failure when parsing […]

New version released, now called AirWaves TV Guide

I’ve released a new version. It has a name change as apparently Adobe doesn’t like people using AIR in the name of the application. It now plays an alarm sound to help remind you if a favourite is on. It will, from now on, auto update itself (with your permission) Version 0.02 can be found […]

AIR TV Guide now available

I have uploaded the first version of my Adobe AIR application. Link on the left. It’s got a few more gaps than I hoped for but it is stable and all the main functionality works. The main problem is that alarm sounds aren’t playing which I’ll be looking into later. I also have a few […]

AIR TV Guide, first version coming soon

This is a screenshot from the AIR TV Guide I have been writing for a while now. It currently does the bare minimum to be useful but I intend building on this as time goes on. See the AIR TV Guide page linked on the left for more details. I will be making this open […]

Flex Builder 3 Linux Alpha

In addition to the new Betas of AIR and Flex Builder 3 for windows they now also have a version of Flex Builder for Linux. It appears to be a bit limited for now but it’s a start. Adobe Labs Just waiting for Linux AIR . Update: the Debug Flash player it installs causes Firefox […]

Adobe AIR Beta 2

Finally there has been an update at the Adobe Labs site. I’ve taken an interest in AIR for developing applications as Flex is a very productive language for creating good looking UIs. I was getting a little disheartened as there had been no updates since June and Microsoft have started in with their competing Silverlight. […]
