Recently we released the first milestone of the Flex Addon for Spring Roo as a part of the Spring BlazeDS Integration 1.5.0.M1 distribution. This addon aims to bring the productivity and usability benefits of Spring Roo to the development of Spring-based RIAs with Flex. The below 15 minute screencast (split into two parts) serves as a quick introduction to the addon and its capabilities. Watch as we go from installation of the addon to a fully functional Flex application backed by Spring in just a handful of commands.
Part 1 walks through the initial download and installation of the addon, as well as initial setup of a Spring Flex project using the Spring Roo integration in SpringSource Tool Suite.
Part 2 demonstrates use of the “flex remoting” commands to generate and update Flex UI scaffolding backed by Spring and Hibernate.
