All about RIA development using Flash, Flex, Flash Media Server (Flashcom) with various middleware and backends.
IRCTC re-launched their site before 2 days ago while I am writing this post. IRCTC(Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporate Limited) is online place to buy train tickets in India. Currently they are one of the most popular websites in india. They were known as the worst site for Geeks and also I faced lot many problems with that site previously.
Sometimes even such things happened like, only few tickets were available for some route and I waited a long time to process my request to buy ticket and experienced that before page appears and I finish the payment formalities, no tickets are available. And at that time, I was thinking – really this site sucks. But finally before few weeks ago, I guess they clustered their servers or increased the bandwidth or so but they managed to make the site more faster.
Before two days, the site was suspended due to some maintainance but when I saw the new look and feel of the site, It was more professional then before. And speed is really good compare to those old days.
Thanks to IRCTC and Lalu Prasad!
