Adobe MAX 2009 Lab Update

We have been hard at work on our Solution Accelerator lab (filter by Speaker and choose my name, “Cameron, Stefan”). Now that the content is coming together, there have been a few changes which I thought I should mention in light of my previous post.

In order to ensure the lab is successful in the short amount of time we have (90 minutes) to build a small end-to-end solution, the Content Creation (CCR) and Correspondence Generation (CGR) building blocks will no longer be featured. Instead, we will feature the following building blocks, which should give you a taste for their power to accelerate your own solutions:

In the mean time, here’s some fun MAX trivia. You never know when it might come in handy…

LiveCycle ES U1 SP3

The third service pack for LiveCycle ES Update 1 (updating to version has just been released. This update, as with previous service packs, is only available to those who have a support agreement. If you do, you should contact Adobe in order to get access to the downloads.

There aren’t any major improvements to LC Designer in this update, aside from a few bug fixes. The really good stuff is coming soon with the pending release of LiveCycle ES2, presently in Beta.

Adobe MAX 2009

I have just been asked to be one of the speakers/trainers for the “Developing Enterprise Solutions Using Adobe Solution Accelerators” lab in the LiveCycle Develop track at MAX this year. Once you’ve registered for MAX, launch the Scheduler and choose “By Session > Filter By: (product) LiveCycle ES; (speaker) Cameron, Stefan” to see my sessions. I will most likely be focusing my time on the Correspondence Generation (CGR) and Content Creation (CCR) building blocks which ship as part of the Solution Accelerator SDKs.

See you there!

Out for Coffee, Back in a Month

Well, I’m not out for coffee for an entire month but I will be away on vacation starting today, returning July 6, 2009. I will not be posting during that time period but I will try my best to keep-up with comments though it will not be my first priority…

In the mean time, if you feel like a coffee break, you should check-out the new Adobe LiveCycle CafĂ©: It’s a really cool AIR app by Adobe that integrates all sorts of LiveCycle-related resources into one convenient dashboard. It even lets you tag content for offline use and store personal notes, online or offline.

You get a really nice News page:

A view of all LiveCycle-related blogs (showing mine in the image below):

(There’s even a tab that lets you switch between “Post Summary” and “Site” to see the article via the feed or the actual web page.)

Another really nice feature is the ability to search in one location across all Adobe LiveCycle resources. For instance, I searched for “assignNode” (a function to create data nodes in the Data DOM) and actually got a hit right in a LiveCycle reference document — very handy!

Enjoy the coffee!

Adobe Forums Revamped

The Adobe Forums have finally received a long-awaited update. Here are some of new feature highlights I was told about:

  • Integration of Adobe ID for true single sign on to all Forums;
  • Updated look and feel, more consistent with other forum systems;
  • Email participation, including starting a new discussion and alerts; and
  • RSS feeds for many parts of the forum (topics, users, announcements, etc.).

Rest assured, this does not change my blog mission, however if you have previously used the forums to search for other LiveCycle, Acrobat or Reader tips and tricks, it’ll make your life much easier!
