ViewDeck (https://github.com/Inferis/ViewDeck) is an amazing library that helps you to easily add a Facebook like menu into your application, unfortunelly it has a small issue with storyboards causing to not load the IIViewDeckController code properly.
In order to make use of ViewDeck in a specific scene of my storyboard, I created a blank scene with a empty view, in viewDidLoad method I added the following lines of code:

After have some trouble trying while create my FSIS CTS flow, I could finally read the data need from SQL Server instance and push to FAST ESP for indexing, once I got everything working as expected I started to think in what else I could easily to in a CTS flow.
My next challenge was create a FAST ESP dictionary for use on query completion server of FAST ESP, the majority of built in operators doesn’t provide a easy way to do it, hopefully I found the RunCode operator that I can use to perform anything that I need with a custom C# or VB code.

FSIS is a powerfull solution, with CTS you can easily consume and process data to be used on ESP for search or not, recently I wrote a very small powershell script that just run a CTS flow to index database records on ESP.
Here’s how this script looks like:
write-host "`nRunning flow`n" `
Execute-Flow -FlowName MyFlow
write-host "`nFinished running`n" `
And then I just run the script with:
powershell.exe -Command “& c:\scripts\process_database.ps1″
The above command line example can is ready to be used on Task Scheduler, enjoy!

XML generation is one of the most common programming tasks done by several developers around the world, with XML we can easily integrate different platforms, using a data format that is very easy to understand and work with.
Unfortunately iOS API doesn’t provide a built in class that help us with XML generation, so I decided to write my own helper class for this purpose.
XMLDocument is a very simple class, you may not found several features that are very common in XML generation, but with this class I could easily implement what I need to get one of my iOS project done.
Here’s how the class is implemented, any help on improvements will be appreciated.
