Adobe Connect 8 SSL – Certificate Signing Request for multiple domains

by kai 10/09/2012

This is part 3 of a mini-series of posts about Adobe Connect 8 and SSL. It actually was never intended to be a series of posts, it just grew into one – kind of organically. In the last post I explained how one can create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for Adobe Connect 8 SSL […]

Creating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for Adobe Connect

by kai 26/08/2012

The other day, I wrote about setting up stunnel for Adobe Connect. When I did the SSL setup for the client I was working with on that occasion, we also had to get the SSL certificate created. The Adobe Connect installation of the client is entirely internal and not used outside their organisation. The way […]

Adobe Connect 8 SSL – getting stunnel up and running

by kai 22/08/2012

Today I was helping a client to setup proper SSL handling for their Adobe Connect 8 instance. Essentially all they wanted to do was to secure the Adobe Connect web admin with SSL and https; the actual Flash Media Server-based meeting server and its RTMP communication wasn’t going to be secured at this stage. The […]

Extending Adobe LiveCycle through custom DSCs – some resources

by kai 25/02/2012

Don’t worry – this is not going to be a lengthy, complicated, super-advanced tutorial. I thought about writing a post on Adobe LC DSCs for a while, but never got round to. Today, I got kind of pushed over the edge by seeing that my friend Duane and his partner Matt from √úberity have published […]

Moving the Adobe Connect content storage

by kai 02/02/2012

You’ve installed a licensed (=self-hosted) version of Adobe Connect 7 or 8 and all of a sudden you have realised that you really need to move the content storage to a different area of the server because your C: drive is running out of space? A few weeks ago a client asked me how to […]

Getting into Clojure (and other stuff)

by kai 07/01/2012

With the recent changes at Adobe I was more and more thinking that I need to further diversify what I’m doing. That was already happening in 2010 and 2011 quite a lot – client demand for Flash and Flex solutions decreased (and still is decreasing) and we found ourselves doing more and more Javascript-based applications.

Flex 4 for ColdFusion developers (and others) at cf.Objective(ANZ)

by kai 16/07/2010

cf.Objective(ANZ) 2010 will for the first time offer full-day workshops on the day before the actual conference. I’m going to offer a full-day training titled “Flex 4 for ColdFusion developers”. Unlike other Flex 4 one-day training or introductions, this one will focus on the special needs of CF folks either coming new into Flex or wanting to learn more about the specifics of integrating Flex apps with ColdFusion.

Where does ColdFusion “sit”?

by kai 02/11/2007

Answer: it’s the “hub” – I really like Tim’s visualization of ColdFusion’s positioning in the centre of the IT infrastructure! Very nice, and I hope as many people as possible grab this interpretation and use it in their efforts to establish CF in their organisation! And while we’re speaking of Tim Buntel: Andrew Muller did […]

Subversion merging and branching

by kai 14/04/2007

Well, this is not particularly on architecture. Just the other day the dev team of one of my current projects released a 1.0 alpha version of the product (no, although it’s a very cool Flex application, I can’t give you a public url right now – stay tuned for a few more days). The fact […]

First steps with Model-Glue

by kai 14/01/2006

During the last few days I started to get my hands dirty with the Model-Glue framework. To make a long story short: I really, really like it and from my personal point of view it is by far the easiest way to get involved with the idea of using a CF development framework I know […]
