Macromedia Labs - Showcase Gallery
Here at the Macromedia Labs Showcase Gallery, we'll be highlighting interesting projects, samples, applications and demos created by the Macromedia developer community.
Flex Showcase Gallery
Note: to properly view these featured Flex 2 showcase demos, you will need to have the Flash Player 8.5 Alpha installed. The Flash Player 8.5 Alpha is included with both the full and plug-in only installation packages of Flex Builder 2, available for download and evaluation from the Macromedia Labs website.
XDoclet2 Actionscript Plugin
In summary, the plugin will convert JavaBeans to simple ActionScript value objects with
public var properties. It will also convert
public static final constants from Java to ActionScript. Both of these features are extremely useful for developers using Flex or Flash Remoting to connect to a Java-based server -- they essentially eliminate the need for dual-language coding of data holder classes.
Bryan Ledford uses bitmaps to build out a spectrum analyzer with the Flex 2 Alpha (make sure to right-click the page to view the source!):
Joa Ebert put together this demo showing how you can leverage regular expressions to filter Google search results on the client side. Make sure to check out the source.
PNG Compression + Webcam + Flex 2
DickRivers created this demo application, capturing an image from a local webcam, applying PNG compression to it and then making it available for download. This could be a very handy technique to apply for access badge kiosks, 'photobooth' applications, etc.

FlexMail Sample Application
This sample application is an e-mail client you can use to check mail, reply, delete, and so on. It's interface is a pure Flex 2 client, relying on ColdFusion 7.0.1 for the back end mail server integration functionality (using <cfpop> and <cfmail>). Note: this sample application requires ColdFusion 7.0.1 and the Flex2 ColdFusion Adapter.
Flex 2/Yahoo! Maps Office Locations
Nice integration of the new Yahoo! Maps beta API with a Flex 2 interface to map out remote office locations, integrating some of the stock Yahoo! UI widgets/tools.
Chad Michael whipped up a Flex 2-based math game for his daughter, which you can play as well.
flIRC - Flex 2-based IRC Client
AS3 EXIF Information Decoder
Macromedian Kevin Hoyt is working on a port of Thierry Bousch’s EXIF information decoder from Python to ActionScript 3.0, currently dumping to console the EXIF header/metadata from referenced image files. This should prove to be a great resource for client-side image/EXIF metadata parsing- initial source code has been posted for your perusal. Make sure to keep posted to Kevin's blog as he builds this out into a more robust object-oriented library.
Vijay has put together a nice front end to MXNA built in Flex 2/ActionScript 3 using the current MXNA web services.
Although currently incomplete, Darron Schall is working on FlashVNC- a VNC client built in AS 3 targeting Flash Player 8.5. Using binary sockets to connect to a TightVNC server by way of the RFB protocol, FlashVNC also implements DES encryption and should prove to be a great example of the speed improvements in AS3/Flash Player 8.5.
Flex TimePicker 2 Component
Randy Drisgill is working on a port of his Flex 1.x-based Flex TimePicker Component to ActionScript 3/Flex 2, which mimics the behavior of the Microsoft time picker (i.e. the picker control that's shown when you double-click the time in the Windows XP system tray). You can view his progress at the following URL- keep posted to Randy's weblog for updates!
AsFusion Feed Reader
AsFusion Reader is an application to read RSS feeds. It has built in channels such as MXNA and FullAsAGoog, and it also allows adding custom folders and feeds for those that are not included in one of the built in channels. Other features are the option to save interesting posts to read later, community tagging and Podcast listening.
Ted Patrick has created Zorn Chat - a basic chat application implemented in Flex 2 using AMF over the new Socket class. Great stuff!
Chad Michael prototypes 3D rendering and animation with the new graphics capabilities provided in Flex 2.
Danny Patterson demos a Flickr photo viewer in Flex 2- allowing you to enter a tag, submit it, and browse corresponding images from the popular Flickr service.
