Subject Re: FABridge support
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 08:03:27 GMT
Indeed my Email was  before the survey. I though that Fabridge was not in
the release( looks like i was wrong).

@ Scott Guthmann
Looking at my Support for the Flex Framework and the Flash platform in
general. For more then 4 years  i ve been  trying to bring Flex/Flash/AIR
 to Java developers. Been in tons of conference to talk about how great the
Flash platform is when it comes to RIA.

I even went the insane road to export the entire Flash Platform to
Java(using GWT) so transition for Java Devs will be even smoother(No
excuses that you dont like ActionScript, do it in Java now loool) and also
the  integration of some HTML5 capabilities like LocalStorage, Geolocation
will be a bit simpler.

 I did not only exported Flex, but also AIR and a lot of other AS3
libraries like AlivePDF, PurePDF, Aswing, AS3Xls, Starling, etc...
Concerning FABridge i reported bugs to Adobe( They were so nice to  never
fix them).

When Adobe screw things up with they announcement to donate Flex to Apache
(Note i think the donation s great just the way they went about it was
terrible) i was in every forum possible trying to reassure people and
customers that Flash/Flex is still a great platform to build on.

Even at my day to day work i had to fight hard to not make our customers
move the ExtJS or something like that

Aint that enough support ?

 My work never really got any attention in the Flash/Flex community.
Probably because i m leveraging Java and not AS3. Personally i think  at
the end of the day the Flash platform wins. But i could not really convince
any AS3 developer. The evangelist at Adobe politely ignored my emails. Not
even a "No Thanks" (never mind).

So yeah maybe i should maintain FABridge myself to get some more credit
loooool

Our  tools rely heavely on FABridge. If there s nobody to maintain it. We
are willing to do it.


Cheers,

Alain
