You can now see LiveCycle ES4′s new capabilities to extend processes to mobile devices in action on Youtube. View this video for an end-to-end demonstration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPZTXfnsMpw&feature=youtu.be
I am thrilled to be able to blog that today we announced LiveCycle ES4!!, The new release has innovations that make it easier to create, manage, and publish large numbers of forms on websites. But the biggest news is how mobile clients and workers can now actively participate in business processes, improving engagement and productivity.
To add a bit more detail, here are the highlights of the new capabilities:
Mobile forms support
LiveCycle ES4 extends self-service options to users with mobile devices and a web browser by rendering forms to HTML5, PDF, and paper from a single XFA template. LiveCycle ES4 preserves scripting logic, so you can use existing XFA templates to extend forms to mobile devices. This capability is supported in the LiveCycle ES4 Forms Pro module and the Forms Portal Solution.

A topic that has come up several times in the recent past is about testing Adobe LiveCycle Workspace. I thought it will be useful to provide some information around this for the benefit of a larger LC community.
If the objective is Load testing, in-house Adobe uses a commercial tool call Silk Performer which can capture and replay the AMF3 interactions between Workspace and the server for scalable load generation. There are other tools that work with AMF3.Some people have asked if QTP can be used for load testing – It is unlikely that QTP is a good fit, since it is not suited to scalable load generation.
Adobe recommends using Silk Performer or Neotys Neload for load testing of Workspace. Check out the links below that may provide more insight into this topic:
If the objective is Functional testing then Workspace is configured for QTP testing out of the box. If you install QTP, restart your computer, then install the Flex plug-in for QTP, restart your computer then you can start automating your Workspace tests. However for QTP automation you should use the Workspace automation URL rather than the default URL. So rather than http://server:port/Workspace/Main.html you would use http://server:port/Workspace/Main-auto.html.

On Friday Uberity Technology Corporation launched a free and open source code Adobe LiveCycle ES SMS module that allows LiveCycle Services and Processes to integrate SMS messaging into the process flow.
The SMS module was written by Matt MacKenzie using the Twilio SMS service. To make it work, you can download the source from Uberity, read the instructions, get an account from Twilio and you’re good to go.

Moderator’s note: Although this blog post is not specific to LiveCycle, the Adobe enterprise community will likely find it useful. We’re taking the liberty of sharing it (with due thanks to Holly Schinsky).
There have been a lot of questions about the viability and future of Flex recently, and Adobe has published an official whitepaper today detailing their support for Flex going forward. The paper also contains details regarding Flash runtime support, Flash Builder support and other Apache contributions including the Falcon compiler. I believe the paper is a must read and can be found HERE.
