    Excellent Post please upload the source code of this.Eagerly waiting for that………..

  • @prasanth You can get most of the Java source code by downloading BlazeDS. The Census code is in the samples. Then just add the JSR-181 annotations if you are doing SOAP.

    Really helpful post James.
    We are starting to look at RIA options on top of Java/Mule ESB and would love to see more demos/screen casts about building Flex apps with Java/SOA back-ends. Is it at all possible to build a Flex/Air plug-in for an existing RCP app? Kind of a transition from RCP to RIA so to speak for a small piece of functionality?

  • Hi TimG,

    I’ll work on a Mule screencast. That’s a good idea.

    I’ve seen some really interesting stuff from the Merapi project that runs Flex apps inside of Swing, so running in RCP should also be possible.

    Hi, Do I need flex4 builder for this tutorial? I heard from this tutorial saying you installed “FLASH” 4 Builder plugin. I am kind of confused the tool requirements to do this tutorial?

  • @Jack Flash Builder 4 is the new name for Flex Builder. It is the Eclipse-based tool for doing Flex development.

  • Jack

    Thank you for your explanation James. Can you also tell me which version of BlazeDs can work with Flex4? I saw BlazeDs 4 at adobe.com.

  • @Jack You can grab a daily build of BlazeDS 4 from opensource.adobe.com
