We broke Capuchin

While testing our Capuchin application we ran into some trouble with the DataRequest class. It turned out that after an X amount of calls and Y amount of data sent by the DataRequest class it would just fall over.

We were doing a DataRequest every 5 seconds to update the Flash UI and after around 80 to 100 calls it would just freeze. Now I don’t say this is the right approach for a situation like this, however, I don’t think Capuchin should just fail and do nothing either.

We solved the issue by switching to an event driven model and that seems to work very well at the moment.

Project Capuchin

Rocks! It’s very interesting to work with. Hopefully soon I can post about a first application.

Sony Ericsson’s Project Capuchin technology is a Javaâ„¢ ME API that defines a bridge between the Java ME and Adobe® Flash Liteâ„¢ programming environments.

In other words: You can have a Flash front-end talking to a Java back-end on a mobile phone. Now how cool is that?! 🙂
