What’s New in LiveCycle ES3?

-Neal Davies @ Adobe

Since we released LiveCycle ES3 we have received a tremendous response; a common question is what’s new since the last major release of LiveCycle; my goal here is to answer that question. Every major release includes a great deal of valuable sustaining and customer oriented updates too detailed to list but in themselves valuable in terms of keeping your systems up to date; what everybody wants to hear about however are the new features, so here goes.

Building Tablet Applications at MAX 2011!

Adobe MAX is coming soon and I’m very excited to be co-presenting a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Lab with Christophe Coenraets this year! The official title is Building an Enterprise App for Android Tablets in 90 Minutes, however we will be targeting Tablet devices in general, not just Android. You will walk away from the lab with a full-fledged Tablet application that works great on iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab (10in), Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry PlayBook and more. It will serve as an excellent reference for all things mobile since we cover a ton of different mobile development features and use various APIs for some added coolness.

Here are some highlights of the application we’ll be building:

  • Specifically target a tablet with a split panel look (list on the left/detail on the right – think mail clients on tablets)
  • Use states to control layout based on things like current device orientation, OS (android, iOS, qnx) and device type (phone/tablet). NOTE: Honestly, this alone is a reason to come to this session. You will see how you can use a states helper class to automatically update states for all of these things (orientation, OS and device type) and simplify the multi-platform development challenge in a big way!
  • Use a SQLite local database for persisting data
  • ESRI map incorporation
  • Geocoding and reverse geocoding with Google Geocoding APIs
  • Camera Integration – take a picture and save it to your database
  • GPS Integration
  • Using Gestures
  • Using a BusyIndicator
  • Custom styles and skins
  • Custom components including a popup list implementation (to replace a drop-down)
  • Custom item renderers

And much more!

The spots are going fast so register now! At last check we had only 20 or so left out of 100, so if the above sounds good to you then what are you waiting for?! Our session will be held Wednesday, October 5th from 8:30-10am. Don’t miss out!

See you at MAX :-) !!!

Adobe MAX 2011 – Developing cross-OS mobile apps with Adobe Flash Builder, Flex, AIR & ADEP

At Adobe MAX on Sunday (preconference), Garth Braithwaite and I will be delivering a very cool hands-on code camp.  This is a 480-minute session and a bring-your-own computer session so if you register for it, you will need to do some preparation.  Some of the preparations will be posted on this site but they will also be pushed to all registered attendees.In this lab you’ll get up and running building a mobile application with Adobe AIR. The lab will focus on the smartphone form factor, so bring your Android phone, BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, or iPhone. We’ll do an introduction to AIR for mobile and then dive into the Flex framework to see how it makes building standalone applications easy. You’ll learn how to use native device features like the camera or GPS, plus how to create and manage views, data, and layout within your application. You’ll also get a hands-on look at how to debug, optimize, and deploy to devices using Flash Builder.

Part of this course will be focused in on using the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (ADEP) and connecting to it using Flash Builder.

Here is a rough sketch of the session:

Lab 1: Building a new Mobile Application Project
Lab 2: Pushing Data Between Views
Lab 3: Packaging and Deploying the Application
3.1 Android Release
3.2 iOS Release
3.3 BlackBerry Tablet OS Release
Lab 4: Getting System Details
Lab 5: Adding a Back (Home) Button to the ActionBar
Lab 6: Zoom Gestures
Lab 7: Pan Gestures
Lab 8: Rotate Gestures
Lab 9: Accelerometer

LUNCH
BREAK

Lab 10: Install the Flash Builder ADEP Plugins
Lab 11: Starting and learning the ADEP Server
Lab 12: Installing the ADEP SDK and Samples packages

Adobe Retires the “LiveCycle” Brand, Its Services Become Part of Broader Capability

Jayan Kandathil

On June 20, 2011, Adobe announced its new “Digital Enterprise Platform” software or ADEP. The platform is designed to address a new problem domain that Adobe and others have identified as “Customer Experience Management” or CEM. Please use the Twitter hashtag #AdobeCEM to follow tweets regarding CEM.

For customers with extant investment in Adobe LiveCycle and are wondering about what all of this means to them, here are some points to consider:

1) The enterprise services, and the orchestration capabilities that LiveCycle provided will all continue to be available as part of the new Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform software. They will henceforth be called “Document Services“.

2) “Document Services” will continue to be J2EE (JEE) applications requiring a J2EE appserver such as JBoss, WebSphere or WebLogic as well as a relational database such as Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 or MySQL.

3) Day CQ5 will become a “Customer Experience Solution” named “Web Experience Management”. There will also be other Customer Experience Solutions.

4) Mosaic will henceforth be called “Composite Application Framework”

5) LiveCycle Data Services will become “Data Services”

5) All “Customer Experience Solutions”, “Composite Application Framework” and “Data Services” will run on the new Apache Felix OSGi framework, not J2EE (no Tomcat, JBoss, WebSphere or WebLogic required). They will be using a JSR-283 compliant Java Content Repository (JCR) – no relational database will be required.

Here’s a simple equation to remember:
ADEP = LiveCycle + (Day) CQ5 + Mosaic + Data Services + “Customer Experience Solutions” (formerly “Solution Accelerators”)

We will be renaming this blog once the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform software is released.

For those interested in the history of Adobe’s LiveCycle brand, see this.

Tour de LiveCycle ES2

Tour de LiveCycle has been updated in order to include the newly released version of Livecycle ES2. It is a separate AIR application having over 1000 pages of content, and probably the best way for getting a feel what LiveCycle ES2 is (and what is new compared to LiveCycle ES).
