Great Flex Spring/BlazeDS Samples by Christophe Coenrets

Every once in a while you run across something amazing. Christophe Coenrets has put together some Spring and BlazeDS (that's the Adobe Open-Source remoting technology) integration samples, based on the Spring/BlazeDS API.

It comes as projects + a running Tomcat instance, complete with data. If you are at all interested in using the Flex RIA with your Spring Applications, this is one of two projects to pay close attention to. The other is the Grails framework, where you should be able to wire this API to Flex (the current Flex plugin was a proof-of-concept, but I think work is continuing in this area).

While not perfect, Flex is a great client-side tool.  I do remember many years spent at the dawn of client-server with a tool called PowerBuilder in days where we didn't care about super-complicated frameworks.  It just worked.  Spending some time with Flex makes me yearn for the days where the Client and the Server were different technologies that both did what they did well.  Maybe we're at the beginning of a new movement away from ugly browser coding into smart, three-tiered applications.  Well, a guy has to dream, eh? 

Happy research!  Great job, Christophe!  Want to be a guest on the Chariot Tech Cast?
