Re: uploading files in flex using coldfusion 11

yeah, that is my experience too. I think perhaps we misunderstood each other earlier.

And further to your point, I think it's naive for someone to assume that activity on an email list is a reliable indicator of how widely used, or how "dead" a particular technology is.

I think lists like this will have the highest activity when a technology is a.) relatively new, and b.) growing rapidly in adoption. Under those circumstances, a good portion of the developers/users are unseasoned and unfamiliar, so they turn to email lists for help. Kind of like it was with Java and J2EE (Servlets, EJB's EARs, etc.) between, say, 1997 and 2001. All of the Java lists I once subscribed to (and probably still do) are now dead. But Java, and JEE, are obviously far from dead. It's just that anyone who is now new to Java development probably has ready access to seasoned experts on their own team. Or they can find answers through google because the lists are indexed or the questions have already been answered on stackoverflow.

In my world of enterprise development Flex is still alive and well... Obviously different approaches for mobile development (gaming or non) which are better but as far as the desktop goes Flex is still "the solution of choice" for my needs.  Yeah, obviously the lists died and we are never going to see Flash adopted on mobile devices or tablets through the player, but there is still definitely a niche for Flex and native applications developed in it.

You must live in a different world than I do, because my world did not "hold its breath for Apple putting the Flash Player in iOS."

And Flash/Flex-based apps run fine on both iOS and Android, with little or no changes.

Well, there was a  time when the world held its breath for Apple putting the Flash Player in iOS. Is didn’t, and the flash and flex lists died. Just my experience.

Now we have browser automagically preventing flash, facebook asking for it to be removed etc etc. Most people have moved away from it.

That's news to me, that Apple "won the battle of the Flash Player." I have an iOS Flex app in the Apple App Store. And the Flash player is probably still installed in about 97% of desktop browsers.

One of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen is the speed with which all the flash and flex developers abandoned the tools once it was clear that Apple had won the battle of the Flash player.
