Flex Up Your Portlets!

Flex PortletsIf you want to build a rich user interface web application that requires several state changes, spans multiple business processes and requires complex data handling at the back-end and still want to give the users a really rich and consistent experience (no refreshes!), then do have a look at Flex as I believe that it is definitely a good choice.

Refer Sandeep's blog to get a fair idea regarding flex and it's advantages. After that if you are ready to try your hands on it, have a look at my blog where I have explained this with an example.

Browser Testing Nirvana

IE6, IE7, Safari, Firefox

As part of the OpenPortal project we strive to make the UI as visually appealing as possible and Portal Server 7.2 is full of advancements in this area.  Why?  We want you to touch it, feeling connected to your portal services.

That means we do a ton of browser testing via our great QA team to ensure our UI is consistent across browsers.

And now thanks to Parallels with Coherence,  UI development and testing should be a whole lot easier.  With it, I can run all the major browsers simultaneously and see changes instantly without switching machines/keyboards.

Just one small thing we do to help ensure a better user experience for you.
