Cobrowsing application built with Cocomo

After attending the session “Cocomo Deep Dive: Building Social RIA with Flex + Adobe Hosted Service” by Nigel Pegg @ MAX 2008, I decided to write a simple application using the Cocomo API’s. This application uses as3flickrlib. as3flickrlib library is an ActionScript 3.0 API for the online photo sharing application, Flickr. This in turn required me to download as3corelib. The corelib project is an ActionScript 3 Library that contains a number of classes and utilities for working with ActionScript 3. These include classes for MD5 and SHA 1 hashing, Image encoders, and JSON serialization as well as general String, Number and Date APIs.

shareFlickr is an application that allows users to cobrowse flickr images, chat and share your webcam. Adding a chat and webcam component is just a simple tag (1 line). It is a proof-of-concept to show the capabilities of Cocomo API’s. Cocomo saved me a lot of time (I mean it) to write the back-end code which I was planning to write so that I can run it in LCDS based on Christophe’s example. Thanks to Anil Channappa for pointing me in this direction. Feel free to cobrowse flickr images.

Broadchoice is already using Cocomo. Just imagine how using Cocomo and this interactive video object manipulation can look like in the future.

    Will you be posting the source code?

    Very cool – care to share the code you used for co-browsing (at least the Cocomo part)?

      Thanks Nigel. It was a pleasure to attend your presentation @ MAX 08. Actually the code for cocomo part was taken from the Yahoo maps example in the cocomo samples. Image zoom component was used from Andrew Trice’s blog. Flickr code was taken from the Tour de Flex code. Rest was all about wiring it up.
