Introducing The LiveCycle Post

If you’re a LiveCycle user or consultant, you may have found it difficult at times to follow all those great blogs and resources out there in the community. That’s why we’ve brought you The LiveCycle Post, a human-moderated aggregator of the best user-assistance content from the community.

How does it work? Well, it’s simple. We read through a bunch of machine-aggregated blog posts every now and then and moderate the ones that LiveCycle users would find useful. These blog posts are authored by LiveCycle users, Adobe partners, customers, and Adobe employees.

And yes, if you have a LiveCycle resource that you’d want us to track, simply leave its RSS feed URL as a comment to this blog post. All rights for your content remain yours. We’ll also make sure we include your name and a link to your blog in the aggregated posts.

Here’s the link again: http://blogs.adobe.com/livecyclepost/.

LiveCycle ES2 is out!

If you haven’t caught the news already, LiveCycle ES2 is out! This is a major release of the software suite that enables enterprises to improve productivity through intuitive applications and efficient processes. I spent the better part of my time over the past eight months documenting it.

Catch the Adobe press release here.

LiveCycle ES2 now integrates more tightly with the Flash Platform and PDF technologies. This enables enterprise developers to create user-centric applications that contrast with the more traditional, unwieldy system-centric applications users have had to tolerate. New Adobe application modeling technology brings higher productivity to Adobe® Flex® and LiveCycle developers and allows them to more efficiently write applications by reducing the amount of code and simplifying data and service integration. Also, a new LiveCycle ES2 plug-in for Adobe® Flash® Builder™ 4 beta lets developers more seamlessly embed LiveCycle ES2 technologies into any Flex based application. Furthermore, the new Adobe® LiveCycle® Collaboration Service (formerly Adobe Flash Collaboration Service), a hosted service, provides developers and enterprises with a scalable solution to easily build real-time, multi-user collaboration into existing or new RIAs. The powerful and flexible framework accelerates the development and deployment of user-centric applications by enterprise developers.
