Halloween Fun with PhoneGap

About two weeks ago I had a random thought… “Wouldn’t it be fun to build a free Halloween sound effects app using PhoneGap?” (I tend to get excited for any holiday). I had already done a lot of work using sounds in PhoneGap apps with my LowLatencyAudio native plugin, so the groundwork had already been laid. Next thing you know, I’m searching for sound files (freesound.org is a fantastic resource for creative commons sound effects). Write some JS code here, add some CSS styles code there, and next thing you know I had a complete app. The best part – this app went from idea to App Store submission in under 48 hours (yes, I did sleep during this 48 hour period). Add one more day, and it’s ready for Android. That is the power of PhoneGap

Create a JBoss AS 7 appliance with VirtualBox

In this tutorial we will demonstrate how to create in a matter of minutes a JBoss AS 7.1.1 appliance designed around a Linux distribution. The software we will use for this purpose is Oracle’s Virtual Box.

When you are done you can turn off your VM. Now we will export our Appliance. What does it mean ? simply that you can create your own Linux VM distribution which already contains a set of applications installed on it (in our case JDK and JBoss AS 7) so that we can reuse it how many times we want it.
