There's still time to register, but this sold out last year and from what I can tell, the tickets are probably going to go faster this year, so if you're interested in coming you better sign up soon . . .
So, who's coming?
Hoping to create an Apollo
component application for local file browsing and uploading using RFC959 FTP (including the "REST"art command for resuming uploads).
Let me know if you see anything and apologies if this is something that is out there - couldn't find anything via Google . . .
I guess my questions would be whether doing an http form post (and attaching a file to it) is easy in Flex. Second question would be whether this is the most common approach, and third would be for this kind of use case, how else would you solve the communication between flex and the server? Can you drop a BLOB into an XML packet or even a formal SOAP call? Are there standard approaches for doing this in Flex?
Just to clarify, this use case is distinct from a Flex file upload tool optimized for uploading multiple files that are independent of other data. I'm looking to have a way of uploading a User with first name, last name, DoB, resume and photo and am just wondering the default approach and perhaps any other alternatives . . .
Any input wildly appreciated!
Big question for me is whether there will continue to be an express version as the commercial license is a little rich for my clients blood, but huge potential here. Anyone played with this yet?
It'll be great to see the many Flex people I've come across through MXNA as well as the ColdFusion friends who'll be there. If you're attending, make sure to drop me an email (or just comment below) and I'll email you with my cell number so we can try to put faces to blogs!
Also hoping to upgrade LightWire to a nice little config bean setup I've had in the back of my mind for a while. The nice thing about a small codebase is that the upgrade shouldn't take much more than a couple of uninterrupted hours on the 'plane. Here's hoping!
