Ext-powered Application Wins Adobe AIR Derby

October 06, 2007 | ReyBango

Adobe recently held a contest called the Adobe AIR Derby, an international competition open to software and web application developers to showcase their skill in using Adobe AIR Beta software. Contestants were able to submit their entries to different application categories and were judged on originality, visual design and appeal, usability, and application of Adobe AIR functionality in the following categories: best business application, best community application, and wild card. We're proud to announce that Ext-powered application Ora, developed by John Wu, won the Best HTML Business Application category:
"ORA Time and Expense is an application for tracking timesheet tasks and expenses. It can also generate and export reports such as timesheets, expense reports, and invoices. It uses the webcam APIs assist in the filing of expense reports by taking pictures of receipts and including them in the expense reports. Built using the Ext JS Ajax framework, the user interface includes wizards to help with data entry. The wizards smoothly slide in from the edges of the window allowing the user to maintain context while navigating the application. A timer in the upper left discretely logs the amount of time that has been spent on a specific task making it easier to keep track of billable hours. Data is managed using the local embedded database and reports are written to the local file system in HTML format."
Full details of John's Ora application can be found at his site along with a video demo of the application. You can also install Ora straight from the project page. Requirements:
  • Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, Mac OS 10.4.8 and 10.4.9 (Intel and PowerPC). Linux version coming soon
  • 2 MB free hard drive space
  • Adobe Flash Player 9.0 & Adobe AIR (beta1)

How have you implemented the reporting feature?  Are you writing the reports yourself or can ExtJS also help with that?
