Teaching Java to Generate Code For Flex 2

An open source component for auto-generating Flex data access code

It’s a known fact that Java and Adobe Flex 2 compliment each other really well. Fancy Flash GUI can easily "talk" to  robust Java servers. Declarative programming of GUI components Flex 2 is easier than in Swing, but Java and Flex experts from New York's Farata Systems    became really “lazy”. They decided to write a program that would auto-generate all the code  (both the client and server side) for creating and deploying your Flex  2 data  grid components.

This work has resulted in an open source component called DAOFlex, which takes a simple Java class and an SQL statement, performs some XSL magic and runs an Ant build script to generate all required MXML, ActionScript, Java and XML  for a data grid that retrieves and updates the data from your RDBMS.  You can read about  DAOFlex and download it at Adobe’s Web site for Flex developers .

Meet  the authors of DAOFlex at the upcoming Flex Seminar in New York on August 14
