Greg Wilson and Damien Mandrioli are also blogging about the new Tour de Flex real time dashboard today. Greg is the inspiration behind everything “Tour de Flex”, including the idea of the dashboard. He has the story behind the genesis of this project on his blog. Damien (from IBM/ILOG) did a fantastic job at building […]
Ok, it’s technically not “planetary” since only one planet is involved… but… this is still pretty cool. Check out the new ILOG real-time activity dashboard here (screenshot below). What you are seeing is LIVE data from Tour de Flex. Every time someone views a sample, a new dot appears. Chances are if you go view […]

As an evangelist, one of my jobs is to acquire new Flex developers and […]
A typical source of confusion when developers start working with RemoteObject or other BlazeDS/LCDS related classes is where and most importantly *when* the configuration of your services is being read.
The question often arises after an application stops working when you move it to another server. This is one of the most frequently asked questions related […]
