Using LiveCycle ES2 on the Cloud

This video is a complete tutorial on how to get set up and start developing against LiveCycle ES2 running on the Amazon cloud. If you want to get set up, here are the physical links to reproduce this demo:

1. Download and install the LiveCycle ES2 trial. You will need the libraries in the SDK folder to complete this exercise – https://www.adobe.com/products/eula/livecycle/es/trial/

2. Get access to a cloud account via the Adobe Enterprise Developer Program – http://www.adobe.com/devnet/aedp/dev_exp/.

Here is the video tutorial:

LiveCycle Services Discovery Plug-in for Flash Builder 4 is another component you may wish to download. Tutorials on using this will be forthcoming shortly. With this plugin you can quickly build Flex and AIR applications that invoke a LiveCycle service through remoting endpoints. You must have an installation of Flash Builder 4 before installing the Modeler.

Duane's World – Interview with David RR Webber

I was lucky to catch up with David RR Webber in Washington, DC and was able to talk to him about the OASIS Election Markup Langauge (EML). David and I also got kicked out of a bar in this episode.

Musical guest Matt MacKenzie lays down some 1980’s flavour house groove with a great backbeat and ambiance. Code and Tunes gets into how to set up LiveCycle ES for Java Developers plus some tips on how the OASIS EML might be implemented using Adobe LiveCycle ES2 and PDF.
