Mosaic with BlazeDs

Avatar

Level 1

We have developed a Decision support system using Flex, Blazeds and Java. Our current application has different tabs which presents different charts to end user to enable them to take good decision.

Now we are planning to use Mosaic, we are evaluating it whether we can fit this into our exsisting architecture. we have some doubts or question related to Mosaic

  1. Mosaic comes under LiveCycle suite or we purchase it independently?
  2. On Server-end we are using Java and for communication we are using Blazeds, if we plan to use Mosaic then do we also need Livecycle services or we can use BlazeDS with Mosaic?
  3. Per CPU cost of Mosaic?

Thanks

1/3 - I can't really address licensing issues (not my department).  You'll have to talk to your Adobe sales person about your particular situation.

     I believe it is sold separately from the LiveCycle ES2 Suite, and it is licensed on a per user basis (but don't quote me on that)

2 - Mosaic tiles can work with BlazeDS either directly (as you would any Flex app) or using a central Mosaic service (so multiple tiles use one connection).

1. Mosaic has a separate SKU and it is also sold as a part of the LiveCycle Suite.

2. Your existing application that uses Flex UI and Blaze DS can be (should be) usable as a Mosaic Tile

3. Please contact your sales representative

Thanks for reply

On the production enviornement we are using tomcat and Blazeds, If mosiac tiles work with Blazeds then do we also need LiveCycle services or any other LiveCycle Module on production enviorment?

What is central Mosaic service, how we can implement this, can you provide us some good techical reference on this?

THANKS

You can deploy a standalone version of Mosaic on Tomcat. You can find the general Mosaic documentation here:

LiveCycle Mosaic documentation: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/LiveCycleMosaic/9.0/getStart/index.html

The installation instruction for the standalone version are here:

You can download a trial version of LiveCycle Mosaic here: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=livecycle_mosaic

Regarding Mosaic services:

Mosaic apps are made up of separate tiles (Flex or HTML apps that work independently).  A Mosaic service is an object that can be used by multiple tiles.  In this case if you have multiple tiles that access the same Blaze data source, you can centralize it in a single service.  It makes the resulting app more efficient by only having one connection to the data source.

Besides the official documentation:

I wrote a couple of blog articles about services:
