So an application I have inheritted has been running for some years with CF8 and Flex. It assigns tasks, appointmnts, rest days, holidays of our operators. The operators open the application on their laptop or available PC. But we think that this system is somehow old and slow and we think we needs more interaction with the operators.
One xample of what we need. It would be nice if the operator can inform the app about realtime changes so that another operator can be despatched for backup. Also the operators want to have their own space and communication channels.
We want to make the system easier to use. If possible using Coldfusion only. With Ajax? I don't know if this is possible. Any ideas?
Upgrading ColdFusion to the current release (version 11) should provide a performance increase as well.
Thanks Carl! I am quite excited and am already thinking of the new possibilities, also with HTML5, in direction of mobile apps.
Sorry i shouldve explained. What we use the most are Flex events and data services which interact with cfcs in the backend.
