LiveCycle Productivity Kit… Get your copy now!

I am pleased to announce a new project on RIAForge – the LiveCycle Productivity Kit. The LiveCycle Productivity Kit is a collection of Java classes that implement common programming tasks when using the Adobe LiveCycle APIs. This kit will serve more than the LiveCycle developer community, it will also be essential for Flex and ColdFusion developers that wish to invoke LiveCycle from their applications.

The LiveCycle Productivity Kit is an open-source project. The source is also posted in subversion, so feel free to download, update and extend :)

I will be posting some Flex and CF samples using the kit in the near future. I am working on a Flex sample right now that uses the LiveCycle Productivity Kit to communicate with LiveCycle Workflow. The potential for enterprise applications is impressive!

A great day – Adobe LiveCycle Developer Toolbox now available.

This is a big deal folks!!! All of you now have access to the Adobe LiveCycle Toolbox. “What is the Adobe LiveCycle Toolbox” you ask? It’s a self-extracting zip file of a pre-configured and pre-deployed LiveCycle 7.02 installation on JBoss and MySQL. With the Adobe LiveCycle Toolbox, you will have local access to the Adobe LiveCycle platform; you will be able to teast the samples I post on this blog locally – not just take my word for it :)

All you have to do is download the self-extracting EXE file and run it on your machine. You’ll be able to play with all of the super cool features available in LiveCycle without having to engage in a formal pilot. I stongly recommend that you get the toolbox and try out the Flex Meets Adobe LiveCycle Forms sample I posted a few weeks ago.
