Rich application development with web services and Macromedia MX

I will be speaking at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference tomorrow (Wednesday, May 15), so my updates over the next two days may be a little sparse.

I will be speaking at 5:45 about "Rich application development with web services and Macromedia MX". Here is the session dsecription:

In this session, Mike Chambers shows how to create rich applications by integrating Macromedia ColdFusion MX, Macromedia Flash MX and web services. He will show how to quickly create web services using Macromedia ColdFusion MX. Mike will then show how Macromedia Flash MX can be used to consume web services in order to create rich applications that can offer a better experience than traditional web applications.

So if you are at the conference, come by and say hi.

Updated Eval Technote

The tech note describing using eval on the left side of an operator has been updated to take note of an issue that has arisen.

eval("TextField" + "One") = "string1"

Will return "undefined" in Test Movie and the eval() will fail in Macromedia Flash Player 6.

To correct the problem enclose the string concatenation in an extra set of parentheses:

eval(("TextField" + "One")) = "string1";

You can find more info on eval in this post.

I don't have much to post this morning, so I posted some ActionScript code that I created when I first started to play around with Flash MX. I have posted two things: - This is a class that can load and parse config files of various formats. - This is a library that adds useful methods to the String object.

Note, these are provided as is. Also, there is some weird stuff in there (look how I check that is included, I should just check for Config.prototype). If you have any comments, or suggestions, be sure to post them in the comments section for each piece of code.
