OpenSource - Rich Internet Application Development Platform - WOW!!

OpenLaszlo Overview

OpenLaszlo is the leading open source platform for the development and delivery of rich Internet applications on the World Wide Web.

Cinematic user experience

Applications developed on OpenLaszlo provide a dramatically improved online user experience featuring advanced interfaces delivered on a single Web page. By bringing true application behavior to the Web, OpenLaszlo makes a new generation of online communications, commerce and content services viable for the first time. (more...)

Rapid XML development approach

OpenLaszlo applications are written in LZX, a standards-driven XML and JavaScript description language that enables a declarative, text-based development process. LZX supports rapid prototyping, collaborative software development and long term code maintenance. (more...)

Scalable deployment architecture

Depending on requirements, OpenLaszlo applications can be deployed either SOLO (Standalone OpenLaszlo Output) or from the OpenLaszlo Server. SOLO deployment supports most use cases and works from any HTTP Web server. OpenLaszlo Server deployment supports additional data integration options, persistent connections and run-time media transcoding. The OpenLaszlo server is Java-based and works with leading J2EE application servers and Java Servlet Containers. OpenLaszlo's standards-based architecture delivers exceptional reliability and scalability, proven in deployments serving millions of users to date. (more...)


  • Develop standards-based rich Internet Applications that support any web browser with a single code base in XML and JavaScript

  • Deploy them from any HTTP Web server in SOLO mode, or from a J2EE application server or Java servlet container running the OpenLaszlo Server under Linux, UNIX, Windows or Mac OS X

  • Display them in any Web browser enabled with the Flash 6 Player or above, reaching 96% of all Web-enabled desktops


The OpenLaszlo SDK consists of a compiler written in Java, a runtime JavaScript library, and an optional Java servlet that provides additional services to the running application.

Flash ads disabled in IE (on applying latest IE update)

Flash ads disabled inIE

I have downloaded the patch. It is not as bad as I thought it was going to be. For me, all flash ads still show. To interact with the flash ads, you have to click on them first.

How is it that this may just affect flash ads? What about flash of any kind on a site?

There is a work around to this which eliminates the extra click. If the OBJECT tag is written to the page by JavaScript it will bypass the extra click. HOWEVER. The document.write must be contained in an external JS file. It can not be inline with the code.

The suggestions already posted in these comments rein in the most common workarounds to the IE update, and you can find more information and resources to help address the change published at the URL below.

Note- this behavioral change in IE is not specific to Flash, but any embedded ‘active content’, for the record (applets, Quicktime movies, etc.).

As suggested earlier, putting the object/embed tag in a document.write() call within an external Javascript file (and then including that JS file in your HTML doc) will remove the need for a user click to activate the control. By parameterizing your external JS file/functions, it could also be reused by passing in references to different SWF movies, requiring only one external JS file across multiple resources.

Hope this helps out.

There’s a few Javascript methods of embedding Flash that fix this…

I’ve been tracking the issue here.

So - Would all the publishers ask people to download Firefox… to protect their revenues?
