    Hello Sujit;

    The links for the videos (www.geekzguru.net) from mayan k. do not work, is the website down or are there new links? I went to Mayan’s blog, but could not download files that were available or see everything correctly. I could view a couple of his videos at https://admin.adobe.acrobat.com/_a295153/p77178814/
    (this was for one video) but this didn’t allow me to download the tutorial files.

    Mayan’s videos are great starting points for FB.

    Thanks for the work on your blog,
    John D.

    Hello Sujit;

    Please disregard my post. Mayan said his site may have gone down temporarily, plus after resetting my router everything works.

    Thanks again for all the helpful FB 4 info.

    I’ve followed your tutorial on the HTTPService for Yahoo Weather using FlashBuiler 4, but cannot get any results.

    Also, I tried following your tutorial for Yahoo Weather replacing it with a Twitter call, but cannot get any results with that either.

    In the Yahoo Weather tutorial, you show a input field and button, but no reference to it in the instructions.

    I was wonder if you can do a tutorial on retrieving twitters for a username?

    Newbie at Flex, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Sujith
    Yesteday i attended , adobe flash developer summit , it was a nice summit.
    I am very new to this flex technology , from coming there , i got a good idea about all the technology used.

    I am currently working with flex and blazeDs with spring in bacl end.
    My project is some thing like stoke screener for Google beta version.
    In this i am facing some problem, which is i am getting nearly 10,000 data from Db and before plotting the data as line chart.
    i am removing the disabled range data from the collected data from db
    by using
    hAxis.disabledRanges=ignoreDates;
    in this ignoreDates is the array which contains the ignored Dates.
    IF i skip this step graph plotting is very fast , but when i have this step , its taking nearly 2 to 3 mins time to replot the graph.
    Please let me know any option is there to slove this problem.

  6. Hi Jeffrey,

    In the sample the Button and the Input field are generated by Flash Builder for us. If you want to communicate with twitter APIs try creating a AIR based Flex application, because Twitter still doesn’t have crossdomain policy yet.

    Hope this helps.

    How can I buy this online in india?

  12. Chandra says:

    Hi Sujit,

    I have one question on backward compatibility issue. Currently, our application is built on top of the Flex Builder 3.2 (Flex SDK 3.2) and we are planning to upgrade to the Flash Builder 4.0

    Is 4.0 is backward compatibility with the 3.2 SDK?

    Thanks,
    Chandra

  13. Hussein says:

    i was just testing an AIR application written using the 3.2 SDK on flash builder 4…but i was not able to run the application…it gave me an error regarding the sdk version. i think i have to download the 3.2 SDK and include it to the build path.

  14. Hussein says:

    update:sorry it was my fault it worked without downloading SDK 3.2….i just imported the project and selected the 3.5 SDK version instead of 4 version and it worked fine for me.

  15. Kayo says:

    Hi

    Thanks for you session. I tried to buy Flash Builder 4 but couldn’t get to the purchase link for India.

    Please can you advise how to buy Flash Builder 4 (or for that matter, any flash product) in India?

    Adobe Products page for “How to buy worldwide” has zero reseller/distributor listings for India.

    Adobe customer care helpline suggested to change the “Country” on the top of the products page of the adobe website. I tried this, but after clicking the buy link for “Flash Builder 4″ the selection goes back to “US”

  16. Hi Kayo,

    As of now we don’t have online store for India. Please find the list of resellers at this URL http://resellers.adobe.com/cgi-bin/user.cgi?country=in Leave everything to default and click on “Search” button at the bottom. You will find list of resellers in India. All resellers have all Adobe products :)

    Hope this helps :)

  17. Hi Hussein,

    Good to know that you got it working :)

  18. Hi Chandra,

    If you want to continue to use Flex 3, then import your project to Flash Builder 4 and select Flex 3.5 SDK. If you want to migrate your project to Flex 4 SDK, please read this article http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Developer+Documentation

    Hope this helps.

  22. Craig Mc says:

    Hi Sunjit,

    I have just migrated to Flex 4 (flash builder), and while there is no shortage of examples of data service connections to PHP I have seen non for ASP classic which is the basis for about 60 of my Flex 3 apps.

    In your travels have you come across any good examples of proxy classes for ASP Classic. (similiar to the zend amf stuff in php).

    I am basically looking for a nicer way to talk to data with asp.

    Any ideas?

    Craig

  23. Chandrika says:

    Your website is very helpfull. Thanks.
    I have to connect oracle database with Adobe Flash Builder page. I use freeware AutoIT 3 for scripting.
    How do I connect data tables?

  24. Pyros says:

    OKAY.I AM REALLY UPSET AT THIS.I use Scratch to animate and now I want to move on to Flash,So My friend and stalker recommended Adobe FlashBuilder 4.But the tutorials are not helpful AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!Today I told a friend about my problem with Flash and they said I had to edit the XML code to animate.But I knew that.But I don’t know XML,so the only way would be to open the pane of the window where everything takes place!!!But when I asked how to do It,she gave me links to irrelevent tutorials!!!How could a company be so inconsiderate!????!?!?!?If Scratch 2 can make Flash(.swf)files,I could do so,but if it doesn’t,I will be upset.There is no reason that there shouldn’t be a clear,relevant tutorial!!!Even if I could edit the XML,I wouldn’t be able to SEE my animation until it is saved as an .SWF file,and If it didn’t turn out how I wanted to,I would have to fail over and over again!!!!!!I mean,If a company makes a program that is unlearnable,then it was DEFINITELY not worth it.If somehow one of you learned it or DOES find a tutorial,LET ME KNOW!!!!!

    how to use LCDS with ASP.Net webservices and IIS Server.

  27. Rohan says:

    Hi Sujit, we are developing this product for http://www.inpronto.com

    in it we have two swfs connecting to one database.
    We are using DotNet webservices.

    I need live reflection between the two swfs.
    any change in one of the swfs should reflect in the other.
    My weapon of choice is LCDS, but how do i use LCDS in this environment. Please suggest.

  28. Pooja Gupta says:

    Wow…this list is awesome.

  29. Hi Rohan,

    LCDS needs J2EE server. If you cannot use J2EE server, then you can have a look at this http://www.themidnightcoders.com/products/weborb-for-net/overview.html

  31. David Welden says:

    Newbie to Flex and BlazeDS. Have installed turnkey BlazeDS and tried to configure for HTTPS and SSL with my own generated keystore so I can access a SOAP service over HTTPS via proxy as there is no cross domain file on the server. I can start my application over a HTTPS url, but cannot connect to BlazeDS. Keep getting various errors: rds server message software caused connection abort recv failed, or just some odd square characters. I realize this is a wide open question with a lot of possible configuration errors, but unable to find a good step by step recipe for making this work. Any pointers to web pages, documentation, etc., will be appreciated.

  32. Prabhdeep Singh says:
