In Part 1 (CFDJ, Vol. 8, issue 10) we introduced the destination-aware grid, formatters, and renderers. In this article we are continuing our discussion about datagrid renderers and... RadioButtonGroupBox as Drop-In Renderer We can apply similar techniques to RadioButton controls. The following code snippet suggests how the group of RadioButton controls can be used as a drop-in item renderer (and editor). Instead of an onValue/offValue pair, we are introducing an array of options (we could have gone further and upgraded to , which is similar to the ButtonBar and LinkBar controls):                       more)

Rich Internet Applications with Adobe Flex 2 and Java

A typical Java developer knows that when you need to develop a GUI for a Java application, Swing is the tool. Eclipse SWT also has a number of followers, but the majority of people use Java Swing. For the past 10 years, it was a given that Swing development wouldn't be easy; you have to master working with the event-dispatch thread, GridBaglayout, and the like. Recently, the NetBeans team created a nice GUI designer called Matisse, which was also ported to MyEclipse. Prior to Matisse, JBuilder had the best Swing designer, but it was too expensive. Now a good designer comes with N... (more)

Deploy Your PowerBuilder Applications On The Web

The ability to deploy applications on the Internet or intranet has become essential for application development, especially when developing new applications with Internet/J2EE-compatible tools. For PB developers this meant that instead of a single high-level integrated environment, they had to use low-level tools and a multitude of languages and technologies, and write more code while delivering less functionality. The problem became even more apparent when they needed to transfer existing applications to the Web. As we'll see in this article, this is no longer the case. Deploymen... (more)

Developing Intelligent Web Applications With AJAX (Part 2)

The publicity that AJAX grabbed over the last half a year is based on closing the gap between the Web applications and the desktop applications, combining the "reach" and "rich." At the same time, the gap between the technological level of AJAX and what corporate developers expect in their modern arsenal is really astonishing. After all, AJAX is neither a tool nor a platform. There is no AJAX standards committee or community process in place. While software vendors are crafting proprietary development platforms on top of AJAX (which pretty much means "from scratch"), early adopte... (more)

SOA and RIA Together: Developing with Adobe Flex and Java

Rich Internet Applications are perfect for consuming enterprise services. As SOA evolves toward reusable components that can be accessed inside and outside of the corporate intranets, they need to provide outside developers with customizable pre-built components that can be easily integrated in composite applications. Adobe's Flex/Flash platform offers unique opportunities in both richness of the environment and global deployment accessibility. In this session we will uncover all the layers of successful SOA integration for RIA applications - including communication, customizatio... (more)
