    payment takes place The access to the co branded page should be done in a browser page IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTE Although technically it might be possible to use the HTML container of the AIR runtime this is an unsecure practice because the end user cannot visually verify that he is entering his credentials on the Amazon site In the browser he can check the URL and the security certificate Calling the Amazon Co Branded User Interface So the Amazon co branded UI should be open in a browser window Here is how to do that in the AIR app var url URLRequest new URLRequest http localhost amazonAIR startPayment php url data new URLVariables var obj URLVariables new URLVariables url data movieId 1 url data paymentReason Enter The Matrix url method GET navigateToURL url new Everything else is pretty similar with how you call the Amazon co branded UI from a Flex app that runs in the browser Exactly the same goes with returning from Amazon and making the Pay request Using LocalConnection to notify the AIR App The only thing left now is to notify the AIR application and bring it to front To do that we need to communicate between the browser app and the AIR app In order to achieve this we can use the LocalConnection mechanism LocalConnection objects can communicate among files that are running on the same client computer but they can be running in different applications for example a file running in a browser and a SWF file running in Adobe AIR Now there is one important thing to remember about LocalConnection It can be tricked using techniques like DNS rewriting So we will not pass any sensitive information through LocalConnection However since the AIR app is independent from the browser this means that our browser app has a different server session than the AIR App So a simple notification is not enough we need to also pass the session id This is not sensitive information but it will allow the AIR application to retrieve from the server any sensitive information that the browser application has set Let s take a look what we need to do right after the return php page made the PAY operation For simplicity the returnAir php page will have a link to a little Flex app that will communicate with the AIR app All it needs to do is to get the cookie information and send it through LocalConnection to the AIR app private var outbound LocalConnection new LocalConnection private function gotoAIR void get the cookie string ExternalInterface call eval window cookieStr function return document cookie var cookieStr String

connection name is app amazonAIR paymentSample After packaging and installation the AIR app will get a Publisher ID so the connection name becomes something like this app amazonAIR F0B3F68E1857B8A07069FED1D0638CAF200F76EB 1 paymentSample You can get the publisher ID of the installed AIR App by looking at the META INF AIR publisherid file within the application install directory Back in our AIR app we need to expose a function to be available on LocalConnection This will be used by return php to notify the AIR App that the payment has been made private var inbound

Categories air flex payment gateways tutorials Tags Integrating PayPal Express Checkout with Flex July 19th 2009 mpricope 11 comments In this post I will discuss how you can integrate Flex with a PayPal payment service so parts of this article are similar with my previous post about Amazon FP PayPal is one of the most popular if not the most popular payment service so here I go with a discussion on how you can integrate PayPal Express Checkout with a Flex application running in Flash Player The challenge of integrating payment services into RIAs is due to the fact that currently payment services like PayPal are designed to work in request response paradigm which is the standard paradigm for web based applications and while RIAs are of course stateful But let s take a simple RIA scenario John visits onDemand tv a new on demand video site He selects to watch The Matrix Just when Neo is asked to choose between the red and blue pill the movie pauses and John is asked for 1 the fee for watching premium content on onDemant tv John being already trapped in the action selects to pay the amount using PayPal After the transaction succeeds John happily enters The Matrix Security Considerations One reason for the success of e commerce is that the Internet has proven to be a secure medium for transferring money and making payments PayPal uses several security elements to make sure that all the payments processed through the service are as secure as possible Usage of https for communicating with PayPal Adaptive Payments Web Services ensures that the communication is protected from third party access A set of API USERNAME API PASSWORD and API SIGNATURE values ensures that the calling party is uniquely identified A part of the payment approval process is hosted on the PayPal servers This is a very important anti phishing mechanism and ensures that the users enter their credentials and approve pre approve all the amounts only on the PayPal domain Looking at these security elements of the PayPal APIs we can make a very important observation regarding protecting the PayPal API credentials because Flex is a client technology and even though the code is compiled into bytecode hardcoding sensitive information into a Flex App is highly insecure This means that any credential related info like API USERNAME API PASSWORD and API SIGNATURE should NOT be stored in Flex Architectural Approach and UI solutions Summing this up our architectural solution has to comply with three concurrent demands a Flex RIA front end that is stateful and is built following the single page app paradigm the need for security that requires that the Flex App should NOT deal with PayPal API credentials The payment workflow has a part that is hosted on the PayPal servers and that is a standard request response web application In order to address these I propose the following approach all PayPal API calls should be done on the server side so that API credentials will be protected the access to the PayPal web application should be done in a pop up new page so that the Flex Application will stay in the Single Page Paradigm and thus preserve its state The user workflow for the checkout process is shown in the following diagram In this workflow the buyer Step 1 Chooses to checkout using PayPal in the RIA application Security Note Starting from this point it is mandatory that all requests are done through https Step 2 Sees a new window pop up open and he logs into PayPal to authenticate his her identity Step 3 Reviews the transaction on PayPal Step 4 Confirms the order and pays from your site Step 5 Reviews the order confirmation on your site Step 6 Closes the pop up and returns to Flex Application Calling the PayPal part of the checkout process As I said above the PayPal API credentials need to stay on the server so PayPal API invocation should be done from the server as well For these examples we will use PHP as a server language and also the PayPal Name Value Pair NVP API sample code which you can download from here Of course you can use any server language the principles and techniques highlighted here remain the same First I will open a pop up window from Flex Open the Pop Up Window first Using the ExternalInterface call we can control the window appereance ExternalInterface call window open about blank payPalWindow height 500 width 900 toolbar no scrollbars yes Send a request to a server page in the newly opened window containing user choice var url URLRequest new URLRequest URL ROOT payPalFlex startPaymentFlex php url data new URLVariables var obj URLVariables new URLVariables url data movieId 1 url data paymentReason Enter The Matrix url method GET navigateToURL url payPalWindow Now on the server page we follow the PayPal NVP samples and we will generate the URL that will redirect the user to PayPal site serverName SERVER SERVER NAME serverPort SERVER SERVER PORT url dirname http

strtoupper resArray ACK if ack SUCCESS Redirect to paypal com here token urldecode resArray TOKEN payPalURL PAYPAL URL token header Location payPalURL else Redirecting to APIError php to display errors location APIError php header Location location As you noticed we store the result of the API call in session to use it later In a real e commerce site we strongly suggest to also log application state in a database This way you will have access later on to all transaction steps Returning from PayPal and notifying the Flex App After the user completes the workflow on the PayPal site he needs to complete the payment on our site the review transaction page Step 4 and the review order confirmation Step 5 Although we could make the user close the pop up window just now and continue the workflow in the Flex App this might not be a good idea because we would add an extra step between payment review on the PayPal site Step 3 and payment approval on our site Step 4 So I choose to implement the payment approval using standard PHP and HTML and reuse the PHP NVP API Samples from PayPal for calling GetExpressCheckoutDetails API Step 4 and DoExpressCheckoutPayment API Step 5 You can take a look at these files in the attached samples What remains to be done now is to close the pop up window return to the Flex App and verify if the transaction succeeded To communicate with the Flex App we will use the Externalnterface mechanism But since the ExternalInterface is not a secure communication channel we will use it only to simply notify the Flex App that the Pop up workflow has ended The status will be retrieved by the Flex App from the server This way a malicious user will not be able to inject a false status in the Flex App and potentially steal something First after we call the DoExpressCheckoutPayment API we save the results in session resArray hash call DoExpressCheckoutPayment nvpstr SESSION reshash resArray Now in Flex we will have a method that check the status and decided if the transaction failed or not private function paymentComplete void var srv HTTPService new HTTPService srv url URL ROOT payPalFlex getPaymentStatus php srv

exposed through the ExternalInterface API in order to be available to JavaScript calls This can be done when the Flex application initializes the applicationComplete event is a good candidate for this ExternalInterface addCallback paymentComplete paymentComplete The only thing that remains now to be done is to close the pop up window and notify the Flex App script type text javascript function

    and about 20 lines of code later I managed to finish my task In this time I ve gone through some old CF features like the built in database engine that helps you join heterogeneous datasources and some new ones like the Excel connectors or the new and nice Hibernate ORM stuff And after a couple of hours I exposed a web services from which you can download a PDF of the aggregated data So after my first day as a CF developer I felt pretty advanced And looking at the developer data I ve seen that there are more who think like me as the CF population has grown about three times larger in the last 4 5 years to around a healthy 800k Doesn t look like a dying technology at all Now getting serious I think that if you have to do some serious integration project in your company you might want to take a look at ColdFusion 9 Not as merely a language because this is not the old CF that 14 years ago pioneered the web development revolution That is already history But you might want to look it as a tool that is very suitable for integration projects and RAD development on top of your existing IT infrastructure buy essays for college Categories coldfusion thinking Tags Experience Designer from blocks to something more May 26th 2009 mpricope 1 comment paper writing service p A few days ago while heading to the Adobe offices here in Bucharest I noticed again the grey communist buildings I don t know why but this communism thing keeps inspiring me to think about the software industry Just to give you a hint communist blocks are not the nicest type of buildings Here in Romania they were ordered mainly by Ceausescu to displace a lot of people from rural areas into cities so that his plans of urbanization and industrialization could be sustained So these buildings did just that and nothing more Very functional that s it Not too much creativity one model copied hundred of times in a row More an engineering task than an architect s job Now if you ask a software engineer this might sound like an efficient way to build houses with a lot of component and design pattern reuse If you ask people that are living in these blocks including me I would prefer moving I can t really because these are practically the only available blocks in Bucharest And this brings me back to the software industry and how we are building software especially business software Actually the verb for this is engineer we are engineering software And as engineers we are striving for efficiency As a result there is tons and tons of software that is extremely well let s put it blunt crappy to use However much of this software provides a lot of value Like communist buildings I would prefer using crappy software to get a process going rather than push some paper But as the industry matures the fundamental efficiency problem moves away from build these two functionalities with the minimum amount of money As applications move more and more into our lives they become like buildings and demand a touch of the elusive design For thousands of years architects have added the experience value in the construction industry That s what the new Experience Designers for applications strive to do for the software industry They might also be known as Interaction Designers as we still struggle to define their work You can say that these guys make applications look nice but I would say that it s more than this You can t really put this into words but if you come and take a walk among the grey communist blocks in Bucharest you will understand Categories thinking Tags Can Flash Player help your research project March 23rd 2009 mpricope Comments off Last autumn I gave a talk at RoCHI http rochi2008 utcluj ro a Romanian academic conference about human computer interaction I wasn t very excited to attend the talks there since I didn t have very high expectation about the research activities in Romania Well I was very wrong About half of the subjects and presentations there left me mouth open I also had the pleasure to meet Mr Sabin Buraga who I can say is a true Teacher 2 0 and who was one of the main responsible for putting together that inspiring conference But there is one subject in particular that I want to talk about Augmented Reality Because at that little conference I had the pleasure of staring at some extremely cool augmented reality demos They were based I think on some versions of ARToolKit also a joint research effort from multiple universities And I was thinking How can this technology be put to use on some real projects How can it be evangelized Then I forgot about it until a colleague of mine showed me this demo It was made with a Flash port of ARToolKit called FLARToolKit by Saqoosha How cool was that augmented reality in Flash And then the creative agencies got them and now it seems to be a fad http ge ecomagination com smartgrid augmented reality http www topps com and I think that BMW is preparing one for Mini I realized that once the ARToolKit algorithms got to run in Flash Player and thus reach 98 web audience and some creative agencies figured out they could do something with them the technology just got free advertising worldwide I am thinking that if you are working on the next graphical or visualization algorithms you might really want to consider them running on Flash Player Just for the sake of a cooooool demo that can be seen by everybody Not to mention that with Alchemy you can still have all or part of your algorithms written in C or C and compile them to run on Flash Player what
