You’ve developed your desktop application with a web browser control. When you run it on a desktop an error prompt occurs “Internet Explorer Script Error”, “An error has occurred in the script on this page”, “Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?”

It’s annoying to see this prompt every time you use your desktop application w/ web browser control.

Internet Explorer Script Error
To avoid this error prompt open Internet Explorer’s ‘Internet Options’
Then choose security tab. Choose internet on the zone to view and click the ‘Custom level’ button.
Internet Options
Then browse down to ‘scripting’ option and choose ‘Disable’.

If you are using sysinternals desktops with your windows 7 environment, then you have experienced that running another firefox in your virtual desktop is not possible because it will pop up a message that says “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.

sometimes you may just wanted to run IE, Safari, Opera, Chrome at your virtual desktops. That’s not a good solution if you really wanted to just use Firefox.

Here’s a work around
1. right click on the desktop->new and create a shortcut link.
2. Browse firefox exe location usually at c:\program files\mozila firefox
3. click on the firefox.exe
4. on the location of the selected item w/c is “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” or any other if you’ve installed it at different location, add (w/o the quotes) “-p -no-remote” to the location w/c makes it “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -p -no-remote
5. click next button and name your shortcut.
6. double click your newly created shortcut and create 4 different profiles or as many as you may need. I made Desktop 1, Desktop 2, Desktop 3, and Desktop 4 for my 4 virtual desktops.

you can now double click your newly created shortcut and choose the appropriate firefox profile for your virtual desktops

If the above fails, try FriendFX’s solution that can be found at

http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/936520

FriendFX suggested to create four different shortcuts for the different Desktops

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -p “default”
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -no-remote -p “Desktop 2”
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -no-remote -p “Desktop 3”
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -no-remote -p “Desktop 4”

It worked on my new Firefox Version 19.0.2

the script below will disable the auto rotate printing option in PDF and print it directly to your default printer

var prn_param = this.getPrintParams();
prn_param.interactive = prn_param.constants.interactionLevel.silent;
var flag_val = prn_param.constants.flagValues;
prn_param.flags |= flag_val.setPageSize;
prn_param.flags |= (flag_val.suppressCenter | flag_val.suppressRotate);
this.print(prn_param);

JavaBridge.jar

it doesn’t support HTTP/1.1, persistent connections, a connection pool or other standard Java EE features. Its use as a replacement for a Java EE application server is therefore not recommended in production environments.

So after several testing, we plan to move to Zend Server with built in Java Bridge.

Java bridge in the Zend Server is easier to configure than with running the javabridge.jar.

Here’s how to configure the java bridge w/in Zend Server

*Run Zend Controller and turn on “java bridge”

* Open zend server web based management and click ‘zend java bridge” directives

Choose the port number in which java bridge will listen. Save and restart PHP and apache services

The advantage of using Zend server java bridge:

* you don’t need to launch a separate servelet like the “javabridge.jar”

* you don’t need to include (“Java.inc”)

* you don’t need to define “JAVA_HOST”

*use the Java() function directly w/in your application.

Happy Coding

If your controller/action could not be located w/ your server but you are sure that Zend Framework is completely running, you can edit the httpd.conf of the apache configuration file.

Zend Server and WAMP Server are using the well known Apache web server. You can easily locate the configuration file under apache’s folder.

To get your controller/action working, change “AllowOverride None” to “AllowOverride All” in the httpd.conf file and restart apache web service.

Happy Coding…

After moving from WAMP Server 2 to Zend Server CE , I get this warning  “It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting”, every time I use this PHP Date function.

If you get the same warning too, you can resolve it by adding

date_default_timezone_set(‘UTC’);

to your index.php file.

Happy Coding…
