Flex Builder 3 on Mac OSX Lion

I, like many developers, have projects in various state of development -- old stuff just being maintained, in-process stuff on new and older platforms, and new stuff using all new tools.  One of the biggest challenges is how to update your development environment and still have all the stuff you need.

Adobe Flex Builder 3 is one of those tools.  Flash Builder 4.x is different enough that I don't want to cause issues with my FB3 specific projects.  At the same time, I upgraded to a new Macbook Air running OSX 10.7 Lion.

CFPDF problems with RAILO running on AMAZON EC2

I've been deploying more and more apps to Amazon Elastic Beanstalk and EC2 lately, and ran into this interesting issue.  While using CFPDF to get thumbnail images of PDF files, I got the dreaded "
com.sun.image.codec.jpeg.JPEGDecodeParam.getEncodedColorID" error. After doing some quick research, I was displeased to see that apparently CFPDF still relies on the old 2D java libs for image manipulation.
